Shahbaz lauds Iranian offer to help Punjab overcome energy crisis

Chief Minster Shahbaz Sharif has said the federal government did not adopt any concrete policy during five years to overcome energy shortage. He said had federal government seriously worked on energy crisis, Pakistan would not have been facing darkness.

He said the offer of Iran to provide assistance to Pakistan to overcome energy crisis was a good omen. He said due to loadshedding, industrial and agricultural sectors of Pakistan were being badly affected.

Shahbaz expressed these views while talking to Advisor to Supreme Leader of Iran, Ali Akbar Velayati, who met him along with a 14-member delegation at Model Town here on Friday.

He said combating energy crisis was a big challenge while Punjab being a big province was being more impacted by the loadshedding. He said the Punjab government had made planning to overcome energy crisis through its own resources whereas work on various development projects for generation of energy from water, coal and solar power was being carried out expeditiously.The chief minister said Pakistan and Iran had a strong bond of love and affection.
