The federal cabinet on Tuesday has appointed Lt Gen (r) Muzammil Hussain as the chairman WAPDA for another 5 more years.
Posted as the Water and Power Development Authority’s chairman back in 2016 by then Prime Minister Nawaz Shairf, Muzammil Hussain’s term as the WAPDA head had to come to an end on Tuesday.
It is pertinent to note that in a letter earlier in June to Prime Minster Imran Khan, the chairman WAPDA stated that he will conclude his term precisely on August 24, 2021 and hence he deemed it appropriate to request the timely initiation of a process for selection of his successor.
“To that end, I would like to recommend that the process of choosing my successor be initiated in a manner to provide for a smooth and dignified transition,” his letter read.
Earlier last month, while speaking in a ceremony of signing four agreements with regard to Greater Karachi Bulk Water Supply Scheme, Hussain has said that the K-IV water supply project for Karachi will be completed by 2023.
