The Shortage of Electricity in Kabul

Dear Editor,

In this era of technology, electricity has a very vital role to play in the daily activities of people. Electricity is the basic need of today's world and life cannot be smooth in its absence. The residents of Kabul city had to wait for years in order to have proper electricity at their homes. However, other cities of Afghanistan like Mazar-i-Sharif, Kunduz, Herat etc had received this facility years before Kabul. Today electricity is available in many parts of Kabul city; it still has to be expanded. Many residents of capital Kabul are waiting for the government to work for providing them this facility but the process of accomplishing this object seems quite slow which needs to be accelerated.

Although electricity came to Kabul residents after long delays, it can be regarded a good step of the government. Now the government ought to pay attention for any flaws in the system and maintain the services intact 24/7. At the same time, other development projects have to be launched for the purpose making Kabul look like a real capital.

Best Regards

M. Hussain
