Parks and Horticulture Authority Vice Chairman (VC) Malik Abid Hussain has said that the incumbent government achieved a major milestone as it successfully put new K-2 Atomic Power Generation Project in production mode which would add 2500 MW cheap and environment-friendly electricity to the national grid.
He made these remarks while talking to the public during the visits to Allama Iqbal Park on Murree Road and Rawal Park on Rawal Road on Sunday. Hussain said that with the inauguration of K-2 Atomic Power Generation Project, Pakistan will enhance its capacity by the end of March, 2022.
He said more atomic energy power projects are to be developed gradually to rid the nation of costly electricity generated through independent power producers (IPPs). He added that the government is fully concentrated on ways and means of generating cheap electricity.
Moreover, the VC mentioned that the construction work of Mohmand Dam was being done at full pace and would be completed within the set time frame.
"Besides this, more dams would also be constructed to enhance the production of cheap and environment-friendly electricity, these water reservoirs would wet our barren lands and turn them agriculturally productive coupled with easing and enabling our rural population to have drinking water, he maintained.
He further said that it is the priority of the present government to address the deprivation and frustrations of the people by making the best use of the resources available in the country.
