The dam is estimated to irrigate around 16,737 acres and ensure drinking water provide to another 160,000 acres. The plan will be finished by 2024 at an expense of Rs309.55 billion. It is aimed at mitigating the danger of floods in Peshawar, Charsadda, Nowshera, and Mardan. “We will invest Rs4, 500 billion on the people of Mohmand,” declared PM Khan while addressing the function.
Pakistan is dealing with a water crisis, he declared. “People are digging wells and our groundwater is reducing,” he added. “We want to construct dams. China has constructed over 80,000 dams.”
It is because those in energy in China think about the welfare of their people, he declared. They don’t focus on elections like politicians in Pakistan, the premiere included. He declared that people who try to store their seats will never think about a country’s growth.
“A leader who is worried about his energy will only work to serve his self-interest.” A ‘munafiq‘ ( hypocrite ) is someone who hurts religion from the inside, claimed the premier. He added that a munafiq would be someone who claims to be defending democracy when in reality they are interested in protecting looted wealth. He thanked Lieutenant General ( retd ) Muzammil Hussain, chairperson of WAPDA, for his passion towards the dam’s development. “When I was the captain of the cricket group, one of the things that I looked for in a person was his passion. It would always overpower a person’s expertise,” he declared.
“A country’s judiciary is not responsible for constructing dams,” declared the PM while referring to the dam finance set up by former chief justice Saqib Nisar. “This happened because of the earlier governments unsuccessful to think about the nation’s well being.” He then thanked the former chief justice for leading the initiative. “I thank you for the work you have done,” he addressed Justice ( retd ) Nisar.
PM Khan declared that money is paid disproportionately in various cities. “Let me just tell you about the Punjab Improvement Finance. We found out that the earlier govt was investing Rs70,000 per capita in Lahore, and Rs2,500 per capita in Rajanpur.” Some places were never established, while Lahore just kept on expanding, he lamented.
He remarked that a foreign-funded task is being carried out in the nation to incite people in tribal places. “A conspiracy has been planned. We need to help the people staying in merged areas.”
