#PowerOutage: As country plunges into darkness, Twitter lights up with memes


As the country plunges into darkness, Pakistanis are coping with the power outage in the best manner they can: with memes and rib-tickling content on the micro-blogging website

Taking to Twitter, many users shared their experience of waking up to no electricity in their homes

Since then, #PowerOutage has been trending on the internet

Famous RJ and host, Anoushey Ashraf, tweeted, "While we spend billions on protecting our borders and interests (ahem) the country has officially run out of gas, dollars and now electricity

We never had education or infrastructure anyway

Pakistan’s a business for a chosen few families, the rest of us are mere sheep

We need to rethink our priorities now!" As we sit here with a nation-wide #poweroutage and our reserves reaching single digits, can we now accept that we're fast approaching rock bottom and our ability to hold our borders will do no good if the country is crumbling from within?

com/li4o5zqNfV — Shoaib Zahid (@ShoaibZahid6) January 23, 2023 A major power breakdown hit the country early Monday morning, affecting multiple cities, such as, Rawalpindi and Karachi

In a strict notice issued by the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA), the country's power authority sought a report on the blackout from the National Transmission & Despatch Company (NTDC)

It noted that NEPRA has "continuously been issuing instructions and recommendations to prevent such incidents in future", adding that it had imposed penalties for incidents of blackouts and tower collapses in the country in 2021 and 2022
