MEHWAR: Power Outage Discussed with DABS Official
Kabul had only 20 minutes of electricity over the past 24 hours following a technical problem that stopped the supply of Uzbekistan’s electricity to Afghanistan.
Critics note that Da Afghanistan Breshna Sherkat (DABS), Afghanistan’s main power supply company, pays $100 million to Uzbekistan annually, but it does not know when the power shortage problem will come to an end.
Meanwhile, social media users have also criticized President Ashraf Ghani for what they described as his failed policies to ensure power generation from domestic sources.
In this program, host Karim Amini discusses the topic with Mujtaba Hoshmand, advisor at DABS and Sayed Massoud, lecturer at the Kabul university.
