HYDERABAD: Pakistan’s power crisis could be resolved by proper utilisation of coal deposits in Tharparkar, said Mehran University of Engineering and Technology vice-chancellor Prof. Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan Rajput.

“The power situation could be reined in inside four or five years by establishing coal-based power generation units,” he said. “If India and China can do it then Pakistan could also attain self-sufficiency by adopting the same method.”
