How the internet reacted to the major power outage in Pakistan

Published Date:

On Monday, Pakistan had significant power outages due to a failure of the national grid. And it’s not the first time; it’s the second time in three months. According to Reuters, Power Minister Khurrum Dastagir stated that the outage was triggered by a big voltage surge in the grid’s south. There was also a promise that power will be restored by 10 p.m.

Twitter users, on the other hand, are not among those who are wasting time and making fun of the situation. “We are doing everything we can to accomplish restoration before that,” Dastagir told Reuters. However, individuals focussed on finding the silver lining of laughter in an otherwise bleak scenario.

The memes are too good to skip, ranging from emphasising the importance of charging mobile phones to being envious of folks who have solar panels installed on their homes.

Take a look at some of the most amusing posts we’ve gathered for you:

“Generators are too far away from load centres, and transmission links are too long and insufficient,” a Reuters official said. Several sections of the country had total power outages, ranging from Karachi to the capital Islamabad, the eastern metropolis of Lahore, and Peshawar in the north. When combined with the boiling issue of inflation, the power outage in Pakistan is just a physical depiction of the country’s current state.
