With the approaching summer the electricity crisis in the country is getting more visible. The power sector in the country requires a complete overhauling and an efficient management to utilize the existing power generation capacity to its optimal level. Besides it is reported that the government is all set to exchange portfolio of more than twenty billion dollar projects in power sector during the Chinese President’s visit to Pakistan. It is quite encouraging to note that round 8000 MW electricity generation projects would be finalized that would attract a huge foreign direct investment. It would be a good development and can be termed as a great success of the government but power sector of the country requires urgent attention. Steps should be taken on war footing to improve the existing and over looming power problem in the country.
