Regular power cut mistaken for war blackout in Pakistan

04, Mar 2019 By Guest Patrakar

War benefits no one – this famous saying is not true if you are working in the electricity department of Pakistan. India and Pakistan are on the verge of a war and which is why the Pakistani awaam is witnessing blackouts every night. But is war really the only factor behind these blackouts?

We found out the reality of these so-called blackouts in Islamabad, Karachi, Pindi and Lahore. Shocking revelations came up in conversation with Pakistan’s Power Minister Etesham Qureshi: “Pakistan has lack of electricity supply and everyone is aware of it. But thanks to tensions between India and Pakistan, we can now cut the power supply in the name of blackouts and people wouldn’t abuse us at all. This time we have India to put the blame on!”

Thieves and couples in Pakistan are having a gala time due to such blackouts. Our team spoke to a young boy in Karachi who is very happy due to the blackout and said “I am really happy because of these blackouts. Now I can meet my sister-cum-girlfriend more often at night as there is darkness everywhere. We can spend quality time together with no one noticing us at all. Thanks to India and the Indian army!”

Everyone seems to be happy due to these blackouts. Let’s see for how many more days Pakistan shall have to undergo it.
