The PML-N Government had announced to fix the Pakistan energy problems during its tenure. They said that they would not only reduce the energy deficit, but also help reduce the cost of energy. After more than two year, the country is still facing acute energy shortfall, while line losses have increased. Now the Government has allowed Solar Power Plants, which has the highest cost per unit.

Why is the PML-N Government deviating from their goals? Why are they increasing the cost of energy, by installing and agreeing to buy it at a higher rate than the current furnace oil producers? Why has PML-N failed to reduce or stop line losses, especially considering that no one can steal electricity, without the knowledge of the local line man? I think the PML-N Government needs to explain all this and much more.
