Punjab govt making efforts to resolve energy crisis

The Punjab government is making all-out efforts to resolve the ongoing energy crisis and a number of mega hydel projects are in progress to ensure cheaper and uninterrupted power supply, said Sardar Latif Khan Khosa, governor Punjab, on Tuesday.

Speaking at the Lahore Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI), the governor said that both public and private sectors would have to make joint efforts to overcome the internal and external challenges being faced by the country.

He, however, assured the business community of his full support on all economic issues. Over the issue of most favoured nation (MFN) status to India, Khosa said that local industry’s interests would be safeguarded at every cost.All future economic policies would be evolved with the consultation of the private sector as these people are the real stakeholders and their participation is a must to get desired economic results, he said. Irfan Qaiser Sheikh, president of the LCCI, called for revival of Businessmen Police Liaison Committee (BPLC) and said that the Lahore Chamber is ready to join hands with the police to check crimes, particularly in the commercial areas.

“The deteriorating law and order situation is making a bad image of the country abroad, therefore, the government should collaborate with the private sector to weed out this menace once and for all.”
