jahangeer Mirza | 13 years ago | Reply I am agreed with Mr. Atif Ch. That Circular debt is the main cause of Loadshedding. But We why dont media tell us about the coseption of misconseption about the offer given by china to supply power to Pakistan. Does the media does not have any commercial interest about the china offer news. Thanks jahangeer Mirza
Atif Chodhary | 14 years ago | Reply whenever on media the ministers of ruling party asks about circular dead they refuse that nothing is happen due to circular dead.But i am 100% sure and media should try to focus on the issue of circular dead is the main cause of loadshedding.I dont think that the short fall of electricity in Pakistan is more than 2000 MW.The fact is power is not generating on full capacity due to miss management.I am sorry to say that media is not highlighting the this problem properly.
