Indian power plants responsible for heatwave: NDMA

Karachi— Ahmed Kamal of the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) has said power plants in India are responsible for increasing heatwave in Pakistan.
He said this while talking to a television channel. He said that India was producing 9000 MW electricity from coal powered power plants on its border with Pakistan. This had led to faster melting of glaciers in the northern areas of Pakistan and for increasing heatwave in plain areas. Pakistan has been facing increasing heatwave crisis which led to hundreds of death last year. The crisis is expected to increase in the upcoming months this summer.—NNI
