Energy crisis is now the talk of town in Pakistan. Economic crises in this decade is due to energy crisis. If we examine the potential of our energy resources, Pakistan is among the richest countries when it comes to water reservoirs. At the present energy crisis is a highlighting issue in other major cities of Pakistan as well but the condition of Hunza Valley is so worst these days. Load shedding and power breakdowns are a routine and result in disruption in the smooth functioning of businesses, educational institutions and hospitals. In addition, students suffer particularly when burning the midnight oil for annual examinations.
Hunza, which is well known for its natural beauty which includes, mountains full of snow, water reservoirs/lakes and greenish meadows. But despite of having all these water resources, still there seems no permanent solution for electricity shortfall. I remember my recent visit to Hunza in September 2016 and during my stay, I rarely see electricity in my home.
Being a one of the best tourist spot in entire GB, Hunza is contributing a lot yearly to the so- called provincial exchequer of Gilgit Baltistan. Knowing the fact government of GB is not working on this issue. In recently concluded by elections, every contestant was raising the issue of electricity problems of Hunza but things usually get changed after winning elections and elected leaders are not more willing to work on major issues like electricity etc.
Some of the reasons for electricity issue in Hunza is as mention below. There could be many but I have pen down few of them.
