Federal Minister for Water Resources, Faisal Vawda, has said that the water ministry has saved Rs. 18 billion from the allocated amount for the construction of Diamer Bhasha and Mohmand Dam.

The minister said, “We could have escalated the construction price by 15% under PPRA Rules but by not doing so we directly saved Rs. 18 billion and indirectly Rs. 63 billion.”
