LAHORE (FNNI) Punjab Chief Minister Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif visited 1223- megawatt gas power plant at Baloke today. He inspected various sections of under construction gas power plant and lauded the speed of work on the project. After inspection of the plant, the Chief Minister while talking to the media said that time is not far when the opponents will also be compelled to appreciate our energy projects as the records of speed, transparency and saving set by Muslim League-N government under the leadership of Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif in energy projects are unprecedented. Why dictator Musharraf, raising the slogan of Pakistan First did not think about construction of Dasu and Basha dams. He said that Musharraf caused irreparable loss to Pakistan with regard to energy.

He said that under the leadership of Prime Minister, work is continuing around the clock for the development of country and removal of deprivations. He said that past rulers ruined the country and the nation and country’s resources were looted ruthlessly. He said that past rulers did nothing for the nation and we will work for its prosperity. He said that destiny of Pakistan is linked to energy projects and he will motivate the engineers for speedy development of energy projects and is ready to do all for the nation. He said that federal and provincial government are being set up 3600-megawatt gas power plants from their own resources at Baloke, Haveli Bahadur Shah and Bhikki and these three projects will be completed within a short period of 27 months whereas in past, such projects were not completed even in 60 months. He said that it will be record in the 70 years history of Pakistan that a project will be completed within the stipulated period without any additional expenditure.  He said it has become possible due to round the clock tireless efforts of all the people. He said that Guddu power plant was completed in 60 months but Baloke gas power plant will be completed in a record period of 27 months. He said that work being carried out speedily on Baloke gas power plant is unprecedented. He said that thousands of engineers and labourers are working on the project.

He said that installation of generators has been completed whereas turbines will also reach in March. He said that first turbine will become operational in July while the second in August due to which, 750 megawatt electricity will be added to national grid while in January 2018, this project will generate 1223 megawatt electricity. He said that present government has forwarded electricity projects speedily despite sit-ins of 2014 and lockdown of 2016. Shehbaz Sharif said that precious time of the nation was wasted due to sit-ins and lockdown but despite it we continued forwarding power projects and added that at the end of current year, darkness will be removed with the completion of energy projects and there will be illumination everywhere and load-shedding will be eliminated. He said that the burden of a number of decades of the past will become history. He said that surplus electricity will be available for agriculture, industries, education, health and other sectors.  He said that this is a great credit of present government under the leadership of Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif. In addition to these, energy projects are being executed under CPEC and work is being carried out speedily on 1320-megawatt Sahiwal Coal Power Project which will be completed in June 2017 in spite of December 25, 2017. The Chief Minister said that all out steps will be taken for speedy completion of energy projects as his every step is only for the nation and the country.

He said that under the leadership of Prime Minister, Rs.112 billion have been saved in gas-based projects which is unprecedented in the history of the country as a saving of only Rs.40 billion has been made in Baloke project. He said that Chinese company Harbin International and American Company General Electric have installed Guddu power plant at the rate of 8 lakh 34 thousand dollar per megawatt and these companies are setting Baloke gas power project on 4 lakh 69 thousand dollar per megawatt which is a proof of the fact that these companies and investors have complete confidence in the leadership of Prime Minister. He said that due to transparent policy of the government, these companies have been forced to set up energy projects at such a low cost. He said that the golden principles of standard and transparency introduced by Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif have become his identity. The Chief Minister said that more than three thousand engineers and workers are working at the power plant. He said that two hours less load-shedding will be done in summer when the power plant will become operational. He said that gas turbines of the most modern technology of the world are being installed. He said that seven billion rupees will be saved annually under the head of fuel and cheap electricity will be provided to the consumers. He said that a heinous joke has been committed to the nation in the name of energy projects during the last 70 years. He said that Neelam Jhelum Hydel Power Project has been ruined and the past rulers looted national wealth mercilessly. He said that 985-Megawatt Neelam Jhelum Project was started in 2003 by the then-dictator Gen. Musharaf and this project is still incomplete. He said that 4.5 billion dollars of the poor nation are being spent on it and all this is due to the dictator who raised slogan of Pakistan First. He said that Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif has also expressed displeasure over delay in Neelam Jhelum Power Project however, present Chairman WAPDA has assured to complete it in the beginning of 2018. He said that 562 million dollars are being spent on 1223 megawatt Baloke gas power plant project while 4.5 billion dollars are being spent on Neelam Jhelum. Shehbaz Sharif said that development projects are being completed speedily during our period and the nation’s progress in this way. He appreciated engineers and workers working on Baloke Gas power plant and said that they are the workers of the project of construction and prosperity of the country and their name will be written in golden letters. He advised them to work hard and said that Prime Minister will also appreciate and give them prize on completion of the project while Punjab government will also encourage and award them. The Chief Minister also congratulated Chief Executive Officer of the project Rashid Mahmood Langrial, EPC Contractor Chinese Company and Consultant. Replying to the questions of the media, Shehbaz Sharif said that a huge loss has been caused to the country and the nation due to sit-ins and protest politics of Niazi Sahib. He said that Panama case is in Supreme Court and we have great respect for Supreme Court and its decisions. He said in contrary to Niazi Sahib that if decision was in his favour then Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry was very good otherwise bad. He said that all should respect the decision of the court unlike Niazi Sahib who says good in case the decision is in his favour otherwise not accepted. This attitude of Niazi Sahib is tantamount to killing the justice, he added. He said that the nation getting justice never accepts defeat. Answering another question, the Chief Minister said that hydel projects are also important for the progress and prosperity of the country. Why dictator Musharraf did not construct Dasu and Basha dams although he raised slogan of Pakistan First, he questioned? Shehbaz Sharif said the credit goes to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif that work has been started on construction of 4000 megawatt Dasu dam while land has been acquired for Basha dam. He said that capacity of the turbines being installed at Baloke gas power plant is maximum in the world. Replying to another question, the Chief Minister said that Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif had once decided to construct Kala Bagh dam, although this is a non-practicable project but its usefulness cannot be denied. He said that it is against the solidarity of Pakistan to start work on this project unless the entire nation is united and the four brothers agreed. He said that the provinces have differences on Kala Bagh project and it is also a gift of dictatorship. He said that consensus of all the four provinces is necessary for Kala Bagh project. He said that past rulers did not pay attention to Dasu and Bhasha dams. Answering another question, Shehbaz Sharif said that like Neelam Jhelum, Nandi Pur Power Project also tells the loot and plunder of past rulers but now this project is generating energy. He said that if our government had not started this project than 33 billion rupees of the nation have been usurped. He said that electricity needs of four lakh families will be fulfilled with the installation of Baloki Power Plant and all the families of two crore population will be benefitted. Chief Executive Officer of the project Rashid Mahmood Langrial apprised the Chief Minister about the progress of the project and gave a briefing in this regard. Provincial Minister for Industries Sheikh Alauddin, Members Assembly and concerned officials were also present on the occasion.
