Power outages and world media

August 14, 2012

THIS is apropos of the international media coverage about India’s power outages that have triggered panic among the local people and the officials. What I have noticed is that this one-off incident has attracted international media attention. However, Paksitan’s chronic power outages have not attracted the world media’s attention.

Pakistan has been suffering from this for a long time, but there is little support from countries like the UK, the US, France, Russia and even China. This has not helped us get out of this crisis.
