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.

        Your “line” do not justify this lately announced project which will not see the day light ;)
        Where are those 350 dams?

    • u people only think about projects as a ladder to win an election. Think of the projects for long term investment for people of Pakistan

      • Ali Salman

        Very intelligent statement but this long term investment thought for Pakistan was in hibernation for past 50 months?

    • Ali Salman

      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.

        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.

  • Sehab Khan

    ye KP k Qaim Ali Shah hain ???????

    • LOL aap aisa kyun nahi kehty k “Better than afghanistan”

    • Ali Salman

      Sindh will be a better benchmark for comparison of KPK govt’s performance, not Punjab ;)

  • akbar khan

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

        • Raja Maja

    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۔

    • Raja Maja

    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۔

      For your information, dawn is not reliable.

      • Waqas

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

    • Ali Salman

      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.

  • idm af

    Baray bh** kay q*** hain. Election kay nazdeek saray kaam shuru kartay hain.

    • Wali Khan

      Kaam naheen Alaan.

  • Wali Khan

    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.

  • ABKhan

    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.
