It creates problems of far reaching consequences in the socio-economic development of a country, houses, mills, factories, industries, shops, hospitals all fall a victim to it. The running mills,factories and industries come to a standstill. Failure of electricity hampers productivity. Domestic life becomes painful. The housewives grope in the darkness in the kitchen. The sufferings of the students due to load-shedding beggar description. The patients also suffer terribly for load-shedding. Operations are stopped. The food kept in the refrigerators get rotten. The commodities preserved in cold storage get spoiled. In fact, load-shedding causes great sufferings to the people and an irreparable loss to the country. The entire life-domestic and industrial comes to a standstill. An all out effort should be made to stop load-shedding.
