TIMERGARA, 04 July: Khyber Pakhtunkwha (KP) Chief Minister Pervez Khattak has inaugurated spadework on Koto Micro Hydel Power Project here today.

The 12 billion rupees project would be completed in four year, generating 40.8-megawattt power. Addressing the groundbreaking ceremony of the project, the chief minister said that hydro power is the cheapest source of power generation but the federal government is reluctant to focus on it.

Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan, provincial minister for education Muhammad Atif, and minister for finance Muzaffar Said were also present on the occasion.

The chief minister said that the successful completion of the project would help ensure uninterrupted power supply at the rate of Rs 4 per unit, adding that a number of such projects would be launched to produce 400-megawatt power, which would not only benefit the people of Dir but the whole region of Swat.

The local people lauded the government for starting the power project, saying that it has taken a step in the right direction by initiating this power project. They added that there are a number of such sites in Lower Dir, which could be used for generating power. “There are a number of sites where power generation projects can be initiated. Government should also focus on those sites, which would help put an end on elongated power breakdowns.”

Later, Imran Khan and Pervez Khattak also inaugurated Timergara Medical College.
