As the power supply is entirely restored, the minister suspects a “foreign hand”

Minister suspects a foreign hand

Khurram Dastgir, the federal minister of energy, asserted that 22 hours after the national grid crashed, all electricity had been restored nationwide.

The government will also investigate whether foreign agents were engaged in the widespread power outage, according to Khurram Dastgir, who made the announcement at a news conference on Tuesday morning in Islamabad.

However, the country would only experience minimal load shedding during the next two days, according to the energy ministry.

He said that there was enough fuel on hand to power the thermal power units. He believed that routine load-shedding was occurring throughout the nation. According to Dastgir, the power transmission system was secure during the malfunction.

He claimed that the previous administration did not make investments in the electrical grid.

According to the minister, Karachi requires 1100 MW of power, which would be delivered soon. In Karachi, the power will shortly be restored. While coal power facilities took 48 hours to start, nuclear reactors needed two to three days.

He claimed that while internet hacking should be looked into, there were not many opportunities for outside involvement. Only Lahore Matiari Line, according to Dastgir, has a protective system.

He also told reporters that the outage was caused by a technical problem.
