    *QUETTA - For 15 years, Iran supplied electricity to Balochistan’s Makran division. Protests have broken out in the division as the country has cut off the supply due to its own power crisis.*

    On Monday, the people of Gwadar, Kech and Panjgur had to make do without electricity from 10am until 12 in the night. The power cuts have worsened the water crisis in the area. The demand for ice has also gone up in the hot weather.

    The power supply company, Qesco, says that they have been facing difficulty in supplying electricity for 12 hours to the Makran division since Iran cut off the supply. The utility’s spokesperson said they have taken up the issue with Iranian authorities to come up with a permanent solution.

    In September 2003, Pakistan entered into an agreement with Iran for power supply to Balochistan. Iran supplied 35 megawatts daily between 2003 and 2013. In former CM Dr Abdul Malik’s tenure, the amount was increased from 35 megawatt to 100 megawatt.

    Iran has now suspended the supply due to the country’s own power crisis.

    India continues to destabilize and sabotage CPEC and Gwadar progress.

    iran is never a reliable supplier
    i wonder why we aren’t taking huge risk of going IP (politics is just scapegoat)
    gas to turkey was suspended too in past while it was most needed

    Only few years ago they were asking Pakistan to import 3000MW. lmao

    Pakistan is building 330MW plant in Gwadar and connecting it to national grid but it will take few years.

    And how will 70MW solve Iranian crisis?

    This is a serious disadvantage when depending on imported electricity.

    A blessing in disguise... Hopefully it forces Pakistani (incompetent) policy makers to enable pakistan to generate its own electricity.

    Pakistanis only work or figure out things once the daanda comes and hits them across the head... Donkeys not stallions we are.

    Because the political blackmail you are receiving outweighs the benefit of IP project.
