A project to generate 330 megawatts of electricity from local coal in Sindh’s Tharparkar district has been inaugurated on Friday.

Pakistan People’s Party, MNA Mahesh Kumar Malani inaugurated the project to generate 330 MW of electricity in Tharparkar as CM Sindh Murad Ali Shah could not reach the area due to a problem in his helicopter.

The PPP lawmaker said that an energy revolution is coming in Pakistan with the use of coal from Thar, 100,000 megawatts of electricity can be generated from Thar’s coal deposits for 200 years.
