Punjab Chief Minister Unveils “Chief Minister Roshan Gharana” Program

Punjab Chief Minister Maryam Nawaz has decided to launch the “Chief Minister Roshan Gharana” program across the province.

According to details, 50,000 solar systems will be distributed in Punjab under the scheme. During a meeting on Tuesday, the CM ordered the officials to install one-kilowatt solar systems immediately.

She also urged the adoption of cutting-edge solar technology. In Phase I, with a budget allocation of Rs 12.6 billion, solar systems will be provided to 50,000 protected consumers, who utilize 100 units monthly, through a balloting process.

Each system will comprise advanced solar panels, inverters, batteries, and other necessary accessories.

The meeting was attended by Provincial Information Minister Azma Zahid Bukhari, Former Senator Pervaiz  Rashid, MPA Sania Ashiq, Chief Secretary, Chairman of Planning and Development, Secretaries Energy, Finance, Chief Executive Officer Punjab Power Development Company (PPDCL), Managing Director Punjab Power Development Board (PPDB) and other officials.

After being elected as the province’s first female Chief Minister, Maryam Nawaz has taken various initiatives for public welfare. Earlier this month, the CM approved the launch of the “Apni Chhat, Apna Ghar” project in the province.

Under this initiative, over three thousand houses will be constructed for low-income families in each district of Punjab.

  • This is technically very inefficient and show off. The govt should install the bigger plant and add power to national grid and provide the further relief in bills to protected consumers. Also educate the wapda employees especially how to talk and conduct sting operations to catch the culprits. Legislate to allow net metering on single phase with inverters less then 5kw.

  • How dumb can one be? Giving “freebees” like this is the very reason we are where we are. Directly subsidise the poor through BISP to reduce corruption to the max.

    Pakistan has surplus electricity, and we have sovereign guarantees of capacity payments. Subsidizing solar makes 0 economic sense at this point in time.

    Stop screwing Pakistan!
