A great news

First of its kind coal-fired power plant near Sahiwal under CPEC has started trial production and it is surely and certainly a great news for the people. Its start has also marked CPEC becoming operational under which large number of projects in energy, infrastructure and other sectors are at various stages of implementation in parts of Pakistan. First 660 megawatt unit of 1320 megawatt coal power plant on going on trial production is contributing 120 megawatts of power to the national grid every hour. Provincial Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif, according to the reports, has quite rightly congratulated Chinese engineers, technicians and local workers on completion of the power plant in a record time terming it as yet another symbol of time-tested all-weather friendship between China and Pakistan while talking to the media people in Beijing. While appreciating this positive productive development, this scribe may suggest to the energetic and untiring chief minister to invite opposition leaders particularly the opposition leader in the National Assembly at the historic occasion of inauguration of first unit of the coal-fired power plant. This will help them see for themselves that development projects are being speedily and timely implemented in order to eliminate lingering menace of electricity load-shedding which the previous government could not overcome. As a matter of fact, the opposition party leaders should better ensure visiting the under-implementation projects in energy, infrastructure and other sectors under CPEC in parts of the country prior to their criticism of the present government one way or the other.
