Raja Parvez Ashraf New Prime Minister of Pakistan from June 22, 2012

I would like to congratulate our newly elected Prime Minister, Mr Raja Pervaiz Ashraf, on assuming the office of prime minister of Pakistan and would draw the attention of our newly elected PM and other concerned authorities towards a very serious issue that is unscheduled load shedding in our country. Sir, we know that previously you, being minister of water and power, could not fulfil your promise to eradicate load shedding from our country. Now Allah Almighty has blessed you with the position of PM of Pakistan and we the public are looking towards you to provide us relief from the hazards of load shedding.
Moreover I would like to add here that Pakistan is enriched with many natural resources like coal and natural gas. Despite this we are far behind the others. I can’t understand why our present and previous governments didn’t even think to use alternate energy production ways, instead of using hydropower which is more expensive. We are suffering a lot, our businesses and industries are closing down and unemployment is increasing. I have observed that many people have lost their jobs due to unscheduled load shedding. They are living hand to mouth. There are some homes where hardly a one-time meal is available.
Do not wait for the day when people come out in front of the parliament and ask questions from our leadership as to why they failed to provide them relief.
I would like to request you, Mr Prime Minister, to awake up and not to waste time in meetings etc. Take practical steps and resolve the issue of load shedding as on priority basis. If you fulfil your promise of eradicating the load shedding from our country, then you will be remembered in history in positive words.
