People Suffer Due To Huge Power Crisis in Gilgit Baltistan
Gilgit-Baltistan, Oct 05: Gilgit-Baltistan is experiencing acute power shortages. Load shedding and power breakdowns are routine and result in disruption of businesses, educational institutions and other health facilities. Students face the brunt particularly as their studies are affected badly. The existing power plants and their capacity of power generation are on the decline and the shortfall is widening. The local administration has consistently failed in delivering up to the promises. And due to government's lack of interest, the region's resources have not been optimally utilized. Adding to this, none of the power projects of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor has been announced for the region.
