PUNJAB Chief Minister Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif has said that energy crisis has badly affected every sector of life. He said that PML-N government is making sincere efforts for overcoming electricity shortage and the promise to rid the people of the menace of outages will be honoured at any cost.

He was presiding over a high-level meeting for controlling energy crisis and launching of power generation projects with alternative sources, at Model Town.

Addressing the meeting, the chief minister said that energy crisis is indeed a big challenge but there is a need to change it into opportunity as the nation cannot afford wastage of even a single moment.

He directed that practicable projects be presented for resolving energy crisis. He further directed that comprehensive recommendations be submitted to him regarding the projects for generation of energy from traditional as well as alternative sources. He said that speedy progress will be made for launching energy projects from coal, biomass, biogas, solar as well as other sources. He said that work should be started with a focused approach on short, medium and long-term projects. He said that there is a need to streamline the system for initiating energy projects. He said there is a need for serious efforts in this regard as he is interested only in results. He said that existing obsolete system will have to be changed for motivating investors to launch energy projects. He also directed to form a cabinet committee on energy. The CM expressed his displeasure over the lengthy and irrelevant briefing given by the authorities concerned and sought final recommendations within seven days regarding practicable projects.
