Mr Zafar Mahmood, Chairman WAPDA called on Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif at PM House today.
The Chairman apprised the Prime Minister regarding progress of various ongoing hydropower projects in the country.
The Prime Minister said that WAPDA needs to work efficiently for the development of water and hydropower resources in Pakistan. We are aiming to produce cheap and affordable electricity and also address the water shortages issues; especially to ensure all necessary measures for averting acute water challenges in coming times’, said the Prime Minister.
Generation of affordable and clean electricity will not only provide relief to the consumers, but building of water storages will also enable the country to fulfil its water requirements. WAPDA needs to expedite building of water reservoirs across the country which would certainly mitigate flood hazards as well’’, directed the Prime Minister.
The Prime Minister directed the Chairman to fast track the developmental work on the ongoing projects and further explore the huge hydropower generation potential for maximum utilisation to benefit the people of the country.
