  1. It is of course a fact that VPTCL sets are out of order for so long. But we are so much thankful to Mr. Saleem Khan, the Ex. Minister KPK and MPA PK-90 who has already discussed the issue at Islamabad with the higher authority of the PTCL. And they have demanded for electricity at the main tower of PTCL on Tereen Tek (Madashil). The community has started the survey for the said facility to provide electricity from Mini Power House of Madashi/Tashqar & Dronil Community with cooperation and support of MPA and Chairman DDAC Saleem Khan who have promised to financial support for completion of this facility.
    The feasibility report will be submitted to the Chairman DDAC Saleem Khan with necessary requirements at Mini-power House level or from Power house to PTCL tower during installation of wire. May be it required to increase the capacity of the mini power house or some thing else with expenses of Pole and wire etc.
    The monthly billing system & other agreement will be signed by the Community representative and PTCL authority for future if this facility has been provided.
