White Paper to be issued on power sector: Ali Zafar


Federal Minister for Energy Syed Ali Zafar Thursday constituted a committee to issue a white paper on power sector, while chairing a meeting here at Power Division.
The minister said that the crisis in Power sector had adversely affected every fabric of the society. Although the care-taker set up was for a short period and with limited mandate yet he was committed to prepare some coherent and presentable guidelines for next government to streamline power sector, he added.
The committee will consist of seven members represent-ing both the government and private sectors, he said.
He said that in that regard, the services of more financial and technical experts could also be obtained to make the report more comprehensive.
While highlighting the role of the committee, he said it would critically examine the power sector and develop policy recommendations for improvement in the form of a white paper.
Meanwhile, Caretaker Minister for Information and Broadcasting Barrister Ali Zafar Thursday said all the national institutions were working within their domains.
Independent working of all institutions was imperative for the betterment of the country, he said talking to a private news channel. The country would achieve progress only if all the institutions work within their domains, he said.
If anyone had any doubt about the involvement of any in-situation in any pre-poll rigging, he should move to the court.—APP
