PM vows load shedding to end by 2018

The statement was made by the premier while performing ground-breaking of Bakhhi Power Plant in Sheikhupura.

Taking pride, he mentioned that the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority had released Rs 95 billion for the project, but the government is completing it with a cost of Rs 55 billion.

“This plant is not a part of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) or any other foreign aid project,” the prime minister said. “It is rather a part of three power projects initiated by the government.”

The foundation stone of the first plant has been laid, while construction works on other plants will also commence soon, he added.

During his address, PM Sharif also said that running Pakistan was not an easy task and his government has started fixing things after enormous efforts.

He denied that he ever claimed of ending outages in six months, adding, “I only talked of overcoming the crisis in five years and I stand firm to end load shedding by 2018”.

In a veiled criticism, he said electricity is not produced by torching the bills; our goal is not just to generate power, but to produce cheaper electricity.

    We all will die one day! the same logic. Currently in Pakistan the Public sector plus the private sector Power producing units can easily generate the required electricity but for that they need more oil (IPP’s) more oil needs more $ means less corruption means no charm in ruling for the PMLn.

    “PM Sharif also said that running Pakistan was not an easy task”. Obviously it not an an easy task if one is really interested in doing so, because our primary threat comes from the internal thugs! Nawaz has never taken any interest in running Pakistan, but rather he has always been interested in running his business, for which he and his henchmen have never hesitated to plunder Pakistan and use it in any way possible! Unfortunately we are on the verge of being completely sold by these thugs / terrorists who are running this country!
