Lahore: Over 24 hours after the country plunged into darkness, the Ministry of Energy claimed on Tuesday that all grid stations supplying electricity have been “restored” which went offline due to a “frequency mismatch” a day earlier, leaving tens of millions of people without power.

“All 1,112 grid stations restored within 24 hours nationwide,” tweeted the ministry with a table showing that the power was back online at 6:25am.

Even though the government claims the power is up there are some areas in the country that are yet to get electricity.

People were complaining in Karachi that the supply has not been fully restored in the city and many areas are still offline, according to media reports.

On the other hand, a K-Electric spokesperson said that currently “all grid stations in the city are functional” and the restoration process is underway at the local level.

In its power update at 9:34 AM, the power utility added that the situation has improved further in the metropolis after the supply was restored from the national grid last night, Geo news reports.

“Electricity has been restored to important installations including airports, hospitals, water pumping stations etc.”
