The transmission of electricity has already been started. Locals are taking full benefit of the uninterrupted electricity which is a great socio-economic change in the communities.
The completion scores of water, energy and hydropower projects during the tenure of PTI government is a clear manifestation of the fulfillment of the promises made by PTI leadership with people of Pakistan
He further stated that all of the critics will now be given a shut up call. Everyone who made fun of the 300+ mini power projects will now be hiding their faces.
With the changes in police and health, with Insaf Health Card, KP Govt has had a major responsibility of building these 300+ dams.
Prime Minister Imran Khan had announced it in many public rallies. Most of the opponents used to make fun of PTI and Imran Khan over the claim of building 300 mini-dams in the province.
Now, these newly constructed power projects will not only benefit the people but also will be a good answer to everyone who made fun of the claims of PTI and Imran Khan.
