Reshun powerhouse Meanwhile, people of Reshun in upper Chitral have severely criticized PEDO for delaying the completion of a mini- hydel powerhouse in the areas and demanded that the government should expedite the work in order to steer out the residents from the ongoing power crisis. In a statement, the residents said PEDO had promised that work on the project would be finished by Ramazan 1 but the contractor disappeared before Ramazan 1 without completing the work. The resident appealed to the KP government to take action against the contractor and order him to complete the powerhouse as soon as possible otherwise the people of Reshun would stage a protest on June 4. However, an official of PEDO told this correspondent that with the arrival of Ramazan foreign workers on the project went on leave and left for their home countries. As a result, he added, work on the project would be completed only after Eid. But he said the authorities would issue directions to the contractor to expedite the work to complete the work on a priority basis.]]>
