Govt to establish Asia's largest hydro power plant

Express May 24, 2010


Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani said that the government plans to establish the largest hydro power plant in Asia.

Addressing a gathering in the Aimanabad area of Gujranwala after inaugurating the Gulf Power Plant, Gilani expressed hope that Pakistan would double its power generation within the next ten years, and that the government would provide full support in this regard.

He said the government is serious about ending the power crisis, as temperatures continue to rise, and power outages force people on to the streets in protest.

Assuring that the government was providing full support to local and foreign investors, Gilani lauded the completion of Gulf Power Project as a step towards a better future.
