Afghanistan’s capital could be dove into haziness as the colder time of year sets in light of the fact that the country’s new Taliban rulers haven’t paid Central Asian power providers or continued gathering cash from purchasers.
Power imports from Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan represent half of Afghanistan’s force utilization cross country.
Except if tended to, the circumstance could cause a philanthropic debacle, cautioned Daud Noorzai, who surrendered as CEO of the nation’s state power syndication, Da Afghanistan Breshna Sherkat, almost fourteen days after the Taliban’s takeover on Aug. 15.
“The outcomes would be countrywide, however particularly in Kabul. There will be power outage and it would take Afghanistan back to the Dark Ages with regards to control and to broadcast communications,” said Mr. Noorzai, who stays in close contact with DABS’s excess administration. “This would be a truly hazardous circumstance.”

Power imports from Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan represent half of Afghanistan’s force utilization cross country, with Iran giving extra supplies to the nation’s west. Homegrown creation, generally at hydropower stations, has been influenced by the current year’s dry season. Afghanistan comes up short on a public force framework, and Kabul relies totally upon imported force from Central Asia.
Right now, power is bountiful in the Afghan capital, an uncommon—if transient—improvement since the Taliban takeover. To some degree, that is on the grounds that the Taliban presently don’t assault the transmission lines from Central Asia. Another explanation is that, with industry at a halt and military and government offices generally inactive, a lot greater portion of the force supply winds up with private purchasers, taking out the planned power outages that used to be ordinary.
That, notwithstanding, is probably going to reach an unexpected conclusion if the Central Asian providers—especially Tajikistan, whose relationship with the Taliban is quickly disintegrating—choose to remove DABS for default.
Tajikistan has offered sanctuary to heads of the counter Taliban obstruction, for example, previous Vice President Amrullah Saleh, and as of late conveyed extra soldiers to its line with Afghanistan, inciting Russia to approach the two countries to de-raise.
