Federal Minister for Power Khurram Dastgir has said the power supply situation this summer will be far better as compared to the previous year due to better management of the present government, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.  

Addressing a news conference in Islamabad on Tuesday, the minister said the government has added 2,000 megawatts of electricity through the use of domestic Thar coal. 

He said the use of local coal for power generation will also bring down the prices of electricity. He said it is also our effort to use local fuel for electricity generation and minimize the imports of furnace oil.

He said bidding for the first solar project is taking place on the 7th of next month and work on it will be started by the end of this year.

Khurram Dastgir said focus of the incumbent government is on the development of the country while that of PTI Chairman Imran Khan was to stoke chaos and anarchy.
