Many parts of the country are undergoing massive electricity breakdown right now after Tarbela, Mangla and Ghazi Barotha power plants tripped apparently due to faults in the main transmission line. According to reports, the national grid is facing a shortfall of 4000 megawatts electric supply.
The power supply has been gone since earlier this morning, leaving Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and some parts of Sindh and Balochistan in the dark
People were waking up to the bijli gone
Does anyone know why there’s no bijli in Pakistan today ?

Power out all over Islamabad apparently. E11, F11, F8 and F7 facing outage since 9:30 for sure. Loadshedding's last hurrah before Ramadan starts, I'm hoping.

As it became apparent that the electricity was gone all over the country, emotions started to run a little wild
Ok, I am starting to realise, no one is getting bijli throughout the country. #PowerOutage

Even though the breakdown is from “tripping of the major power plants”, people have started cursing PML N
Trying to study for my exam but this load shedding 😡

Shahbaz Sharif, I would like to meet you sometime and explain you the meaning of #loadshedding. Perhaps you seem to believe in some other meaning of the word because there is NO electricity in Lahore since 9am. Take off your circus hat and take some serious action.

Even the National Assembly’s without power today
PMLN has redefined "loadshedding has ended" as today even NA has no electricity despite having gone "solar"!

Garmi mein sarcasm bhi ubal ubal ke bahar anay laga

People are leaving their homes to run away from the load shedding

Others chose to cope with the situation by indulging the nation’s favorite beverage

People also started panicking as their devices ran out of juice
First the light goes, then the ups dies, then the powerbank gives way.

Everyone hunting for power outlets linked to the UPS after the 4th consecutive hour of this power breakdown. This is going to end in a bloodbath.

How are you coping with the electric breakdown? And are you one of those who’re cursing the PML N government for failure of the power plants all over the country?
