Extended: Daylight Saving!

What did I tell you?

This government is in shambles. They don’t know what to do and how to do what needs to be done. WeCite gave you the heads up about the extended Daylight Saving last week (Aug 22)!

Oh and did I mention that they also might not shift the time back one hour after August for energy conservation reasons? That means even longer fasts!

It was back on June 1, 2008 when clocks were set forward by one hour to save electricity. This move was said to be for three months only and by that time-line, clocks were to be set back one hour on September 1. Now, the daylight saving might continue till November 1 as the government has declared that Pakistan Statdard Time will remain 6 hours ahead of GMT till October end!

An energy deficit of 4,500 megawatts is what Pakistan faces with low hydroelectric power generation. That of course is according to the government. The real figures may or may not be through the roof!

Already, there are rumors circulating throughout Lahore that load-shedding might be extended up to 16 hours to cushion the electricity and power demands. It is only a matter of time when your electricity bill double up now!

Also, if they have extended the daylight saving as we had predicted, does that means that petrol pumps WILL stay closed once a week and there will be a cap of 15-20 liters on petrol/diesel purchase from any station?!

HA!

Pakistan! Are you beginning to feel DEMOCRATIC and FREE? *chuckles*

    Please forgive me for being slow and not being able to understand simple things, but how will not shifting the time back one hour make the fasts longer? Does the sun rise and set according to our clocks? 😕

    You are forgiven Saadat 😉 The statement was sarcasm

    yeah you are very right about energy conservation plans being prepared by zardari’s govt. they are seriously considering the option of closing fuel pumps on alternate days. the present govt. has lost its credibility by saying that daylight saving will continue in October. the month known for short cold days of winter. if daylight saving was such a good thing, the world must have applied the formula for year long to increase productivity.
