KARACHI: WikiLeaks has revealed that Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani feared that the electricity shortage in the country could lead to riots as well as political insecurity.

A diplomatic cable sent to Washington by then US Ambassador Anne W. Patterson on November 2, 2009 discussed the meeting between PM Gilani and US Secretary’s Advisor on Energy and the head of the US delegation to the US-Pakistan energy dialogue David Goldwyn.

During the meeting Gilani told Goldwyn the energy shortage along with terrorism and stabilising the economy were the main challenges Pakistan was facing.

Goldwyn conveyed to Gilani that if Pakistan wanted to deal with the energy crisis then the country would have to make difficult decisions.
