Timely completion of ongoing energy projects a top priority: Minister


Caretaker provincial adviser on Energy and Finance Himayat ullah khan has said that the timely completion of ongoing energy projects in the province is our first priority. However, ongoing economic issues in the country are proving to be a major obstacle in the completion of energy projects. Net hydel profit of Rs. 53 billion of the province is pending against the federal government.

An integrated strategy would be adopted to overcome the difficulties in sale of power and current energy projects including the arrears of PEDO.

As PEDO is a profitable organization of the province, which has successfully completed various hydropower projects at a cost of 9 billion rupees and has brought more than 32 billion rupees to the province.
