The power outage raises the question if Sindh High Court is provided with an alternative source of power. As per the reports, the generators installed at Sindh High Court are also out of order. The absence of power during the sweltering heat in Karachi made it difficult to carry out judicial matters.
Karachi, like the rest of the country, is hit with long hours of power outages following a sharp increase in the temperature in the city. Load shedding spiked in Karachi and has worsened in the rest of the country with the onset of the summer season. The summer season this year coincides with the new coalition government led by PMLN and Shehbaz Sharif as its supremo.
The power outage is affecting the domestic and commercial users equally. Meanwhile, the sitting government has not shared a plan so far as to how they intend to control the power outages and increase the supply of electricity.
