The cement-made electricity poles would now be replaced with the iron-made poles as there were relatively fewer chances of their collapse during monsoon season; He mentioned.

He said that the material had started reaching and soon a phase-wise revamping of the supply line would get underway. Expressing his gratitude to the central leadership of Pakistan Tehreek Insaf he said.
