During his recent visit to the project site, Khan reviewed its progress along with Deputy Commissioner Lower Dir, Iftikhar Khan Marwat.

  1. Electricity is produced in KP but there is 16-18 hours load shedding in majority of the areas in KP province.
    This 40 MW will also be transferred to the Punjab and the other posh areas rather than to benefit the poor and deprived ones of the deserving province.

    1. Sir please don’t blame Punjab for the misery of load shedding, the electricity theft,non payment of bills is very common in kpk.

      1. Let’s do an audit. Who steals how much. You might find that the big industrialist of Lahore have been stealing far far more than the poor household consumers of KPK.

      2. This is a blame game of Punjabi people, frequently legitimise stealing resources of small provinces..!

    2. Don’t blame other areas of the country for short supply of Electricity, indeed it’s caused due to unchecked power theft by consumers.

    3. don’t blame in Punjab first pay you bills in minority areas report not paying bills in kpk fisrt you change than all is okay 👍😊

  2. Can any one tell me how the people whom agricultural land and homes were taken by the government were compensated by the state?

  3. Kpk majority areas peoples not providing bills, and most expensive electricity in Karachi per unit price is 30 rupees, they already provided huge tax of Pakistan.
