Pakistan is presently going through an energy problems and it started out when the ex- president Pervez Musharraf came to power after putting on army coup during the time PML-N was taking control of the govt. With increasing electricity issues since that day, Pakistan had to depend on load-shedding hours even during the extreme heat of the summer season.
People even tried to come out on the streets as a number of sectors suffered throughout the time there was serious load-shedding throughout the country. However, with the new govt coming to power, they’re planning to end the power crises in Pakistan.

The contract between these countries is known as CASA-1000 and it is going to develop an alliance in such a way that 2 countries are going to import energy from the neighbouring countries of Afghanistan.
