QUETTA: Special Assistant to Prime Minister and provincial leader of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Sardar Yar Muhammad Rind said Monday that the government is working on short and long term energy projects across Pakistan to fulfil the country's energy needs, vowing to solve electricity crisis in the near future.

He shared these views while inaugurating a grid station in district Bolan’s Kachi area, adding that the new energy projects would solve the power issues  while ensuring electricity supply to industrial and domestic consumers.

"The Kachi 132kv grid station would be completed in the next two years with a total cost of Rs3 billion. At least 100 villages will be given electricity through the project," said Rind, adding that Prime Minister Imran Khan has fulfilled his pledge with the people of district Bolan.

He said PM Imran initially announced the grid station in Shoran but decided to install it in Dhadhar in order to fulfil energy needs of major areas of Balochistan,

"Unfortunately, previous governments did nothing for the people of Balochistan and instead just benefitted themselves.  The current government, however, is prioritising collective public schemes along with implementing merit in Pakistan," the PTI leader said.

Referring to National Accountability Bureau (NAB), Rind asserted that the province cannot be developed until the corrupt mafia is held accountable.

"The accountability process is being carried out in the three provinces but we didn't see many actions in Balochistan," maintained Rind as he stressed on accountability in the province.

"People of Balochistan were neglected for the last 70 years and the masses here didn't have access to basic facilities including quality health, education and even clean drinking water," he continued.

Rind vowed to serve the people of the province under all circumstances and added that he won’t rest until all the problems are solved in the district.

The PTI leader expressed optimism that the government is capable of solving the issues of the public and is taking steps for the development of the country.

“Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leadership is aware of public woes and soon these will be resolved,” said Rind earlier this year.

The incumbent government under the leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan and his team are capable of taking the nation out of the difficult situation, he added.

The PTI leader emphasised that once corruption is stamped out, the country would be on the right path.
