ISLAMABAD - Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani on Tuesday said that the national policy to root out terrorism from the country was in final stage and the government would overcome the menace with the help of the people. He was talking to media persons after inaugurating the 165MW Attock Generation Power Project. The Prime Minister also said that Osama bin Laden has not taken shelter in Balochistan and the US statement in this regard is baseless and unfounded. Talking on the issue of Swat peace deal, Prime Minister Gilani said that President Asif Ali Zardari would sign the Nizam-e-Adl Regulation after complete restoration of peace in the valley. He also said that the government has all respect for the traditional values of the local people and all decisions would be taken after consultation with them. He further said that it was the responsibility of the government to protect citizens and all out initiatives were under way in this regard. Answering a question about the murder of Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, Prime Minister Gilani said that the killing of PPPs founding chairman was a judicial murder and consultations were underway with legal experts to reopen the case. Earlier, while inaugurating the 165MW Attock Power Generation Plant, Prime Minister said that the government through its effective policies would bring the loadshedding to an end by the end of this year. The Prime Minister also urged the nation to conserve energy for sustainable development. The country is currently facing a shortage of 3500MW electricity and several fast-track initiatives are underway to add around 5000MW by the end of this year. I can guarantee that if 1000MW electricity is saved, there will be no loadshedding at all, the Prime Minister Gilani said, adding that measures were afoot to provide 10 million energy saving bulbs at a reasonable price. Prime Minister Gilani also said that overcoming the power shortage is the top priority of the government and the pledges made to the people in this regard would be fulfilled. He further said that the government was also trying to save another 500MW electricity through load management and directed the Ministry of Water and Power to launch an aggressive media awareness campaign, urging the masses to save energy. Gilani recalled that it was the Pakistan Peoples Party government of Benazir Bhutto in 90s when 14 Independent Power Producers (IPPs) were established that are now contributing 3000MW to the national grid. The Prime Minister said that his government inherited the problem of power shortage and was taking it as a challenge. He said the Private Power Infrastructure Board has been set up to provide one-window facility and attract Foreign Direct Investment (FDI). The Prime Minister also added that the government was trying to create a stable political environment by pursuing a policy of national reconciliation. He said the government was trying to correct the perception about Pakistan and desired more FDI inflows into the country. He said that the government also believed in private sector resource mobilisation and was utilising several modes of power generation including wind, solar and others. Gilani hoped that more local and international investors would endorse the governments policy by investing in the power sector of the country. Earlier, the Prime Minister unveiled the plaque to inaugurate the project. The work for setting up the power plant began on May 12, 2007 and was completed in a record period. The AGLs power project is the first oil-based power plant built under the power policy 2002.
