Chitral to get 30 MW electricity from Golen Gol

CHITRAL, Sept 6: MNA Shahzada Iftikharuddin has said that following his hectic efforts the federal ministry of water and power has decided to give 30 megawatts of electricity to the  consumers of Chitral from the under-construction Golen Gol Hydropower Project. Talking to this correspondent here on Friday, he said that acceding to his request the ministry had ordered establishment of a 132 kv grid station at Chitral to provide electricity to the local people. He said that supply of electricity would also make it possible to set up the proposed marble city at Gahirait near Drosh town. He said that earlier the government had denied giving electricity to the local consumers from Golen Gol project and even floated tenders to transmit the generation (108MW) directly into the national grid at Chakdara. Expressing his gratitude to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and other government functionaries, Mr Iftikharuddin said that they considered the case on compassionate grounds on his request and ordered to solve the problem of acute energy shortage in Chitral. He said that now the proposed marble city project would also be launched, offering thousands of job opportunities to the local people.–Zahiruddin]]>
