KPK to Start Power Projects Worth 4000MW

KPK’s Chief Minister, Parvez Khattak announced that the KP government is doing its best to usher an era of prosperity in the energy sector. He was talking to the media after signing a deal between Sappier, Sino-Hydro and Pakhtunkhwa Energy Development Organization (PEDO).

The deal was signed in Dir for a 150 MW hydel power project named Sharmai Hydel Power. He also said that KPK is looking to overcome the energy shortages in the province by working on small hydropower projects which will add 4,000MW to the grid.

The Projects

While talking about the energy sector in his concluding speech at the Provincial Budget for the financial year 2017-18, CM Pervez Khattak highlighted the need for new power projects, with the help of provincial government, private sector and loans from the Asian Development Bank (ADB).

Throwing light on a few projects, he told that the local government will use its own resources to work on 300 MW projects, whereas another 300 MW project will be constructed via loans from ADB. The loan is to be paid back from the guaranteed profits, he added.

Power projects of around 600-700 MW will be made possible through the private investments. Out of these projects, 300 MW of power plants will begin operation next year. The Chief Minister especially applauded the interest shown by the private sector in overcoming the energy shortages in KP.

Pervez Khattak is optimistic about the bright future of the energy sector in the province and this is certainly a stepping stone towards an era of prosperity in KP.

    • This reminds me Iran-Pakistan gas project Zardari govt. signed 4 months before their last tenure in federal govt. They knew PMLN will take the next govt and will not be able to execute it due to sanctions on Iran.

      • Well, i am saying for sometime now that Aamir aata sold propk and his believes to Imran khan… Only now the name needs to be changed to propti — remember, he is a greedy person.

  • ye sara drama ha, en Sahab ka last four years ma kya achievement ha,
    KP Govt ne jo Achieve kiya wo departments k Heads ne apny approach se kiya,

    • un ko autonomy di hui hai tou kr rhe hai na, agr udr chori chikari hr khush amdiya shuru ho jaye tou idr b koi kaam na ho. Wo un ka kaam hi ha jo wo kr rhe hain, ehsan ni kr rhe.

      • LOL @autonomy.
        A so called independent Police IG ( giving his example as Police is claimed to be the most independent and non-political) gave “hazri” at Bani Gala in which capacity?

        PTI supporters in other provinces knowing nothing about happenings in KPK make big statements, just copy pasting and forwarding without knowing any ground reality.

  • like in 7 months left till end of term? Does he know which year it is?

    and what happened to 300 dams they made as per earlier promise? I think those had to be demolished for planting billion trees!!

    Aamir, in your undying love for PTI you have ended up making more fun of them.

  • SO finally he came out of sleeping after 4 years……But still i m sure nothing will happen in remaining 1 year

    • he didn’t came out of sleep, actually this dream was transferred in a dream to the dream of Aamir atta and he recieved the cheque of Rs. 500,000/- and that is how PPPTI blog are written here. To fool the youth.

  • 2000 MW Dams will be constructed on Facebook
    1000MW on Youtube

    500MW on Twitter
    and 500MW in dreams

    Best of Luck Khattak

    Jitni bijli KPK mein paida ho sakti ha, mulk k kisi aur province mein nahi,
    lakin dams hum ny election sy 1 week pehly bnany shuru kerny hain, us sy pehly nahi

  • خیبر حکومت کو اب ہوش آیا ہے۔ چار سال تک کیا کرتے رہے؟ پہلے دن سے کام شروع کرتے تو اب تک بہت کچھ کر چکے ہوتے۔ اس رفتار سے تو ’’نیا پاکستان‘‘ کے لیئے تو پوری صدی درکار ہوگی۔

    • meray bhai 300 DAM to pehlay din shuru howay thay woh aap ko nazar arahay hain kia.

      woh 1 Billion tree thay us mein say koi 10 Million nazar rahay hain.

      think out of box, this all making us fool by paying Rs. 500,000/- for this article to Aamir Atta.

  • This is the same fooling politics that PML N and PPP were doing but they got the wisdom tooth now but this PPPTI didn’t took the advice.

    saaly 4 years mein itni bijli bana nahin sakay ke current bhi lag sakay 4000 MW banaigay…………ab to yeh even 400 MW bhi likh dain hum nahin manaingay.

  • میں لاہور میں رہتا ہوں۔ یہاں کسی اخبار یا چینل میں خیبر حکومت کی کارکردگی کی کوئی خبر نہیں آتی۔ جنگل میں مور ناچا، کس نے دیکھا۔ تحریک انصاف کو اپنے صوبہ سے باہر اپنی خبریں دینی چاہیئیں۔

      • ضرور دیکھتا ہوں لیکن ظاہر ہے ہر وقت نہیں۔ تحریک انصاف کو کسی نہیں بتایا کہ نیوزلیٹر بڑا عمدہ ذریعہ ہے دلچسپی رکھنے والوں کو باخبر رکھنے کے لیئے۔

      • Just because Dawn published a leaked information doesn’t make it reliable. I believe Dawn did nothing wrong.

    • I wish if you would have read this completely. This can not be called a pure KPK government’s job, 2nd 245,000 people will benefit from it ? Are you seriously trying to mention it as an achievement of a government in more than 4 years ?

      Such small projects in those areas communities have completed on their own. But when PTI leaders criticize they portray themselves as heroes who can deliver if given a chance, as if in KPK they have. Failed in a province and dreaming for the federal government.

  • Political and announcement only, if next government installed these projects PTI will claim that they started it, and if they don’t PTI will claim that current government has stopped their power project on political basis.

    If PTI were so serious why they don’t start it in 1st or 2nd year of their government, now when only 10 months are remaining in their government they have started announcing different projects.

    • What’s happening boy. You don’t seem to come home these days. Have you started visiting by lanes of Karachi? Mom is sick. Please come home.

  • I love when PTI put patwaris pents on fire. Whenever there is an article about Punjab no Insafian accused this website to be pro PML N. I guess the reason is that most Insafians are educated unlike most patwaris

  • Thora KPK ki baat kya shuru hoi, sab marasi ikathe ho ke aik dosre ko hi sahi kahe ja rahe hain. Chahe 1000 cheezen hi nangi league ki report kar do kabhi in ka bothra shareef nazar nahin aaye ga. Inki gandi soch, munafqat, bad-diyanti aur be-gerti ka alam yeh hai ke andar se saari haqeeqat jante hain yeh un baglol shareefon ki laikin khud ko satisfy karne ke liye dosron pe bhonkna shuru ho jate hain ke g hamara leader tu ganda hai par dosre konse achhe hain.
