We all know the importance of electricity. In a time when all things are being converted to the electric modes and when the cars and vehicles are being produced in an all-electric manner; the presence of electricity only defines the strength and development of the country.
And frankly, World Index has just surprised me with the latest report over electricity supply to its users.

According to the report, Pakistan ranks in the top 10 positions that have a maximum supply of electricity to its citizens. Surprisingly, Pakistan stands beside Columbia with 99% of its population enjoying the electricity.
Countries like India, South Africa, and the Philippines fall behind Pakistan in this category.
The top leading countries are the European countries, USA, Canada, China, Brazil with 100% of the perfect score.

With the electricity crisis which hit our nation Pakistan in recent times,and we went through some serious electricity issues, it is not only surprising to see that Pakistan is in the top positions but also happy that Pakistan has recovered so much. Although I am a bit and suspicious whatever, I am a happy citizen enjoy almost 99% of electricity supply.
