LAHORE: Minister for Water and Power Khawaja Asif on Tuesday said Pakistan will face water crisis soon after the current power and gas shortage in the country, Express News reported.
Addressing a ceremony of Water and Power Development Authority in Lahore, the minister stressed that the authorities have failed to pay heed to this alarming issue.
“As citizens of Pakistan, we are in a habit of wasting energy,” Asif said.
The minister said the government is taking all possible measures to end the current electricity crisis, adding it will be tackled in the next two to three years.
Speaking about Diamer Bhasha Dam, Asif said the land for the project is being bought at the same price as a property in Islamabad.
“These dams generating electricity can benefit the future generations immensely," the minister added.
