LAHORE Federal Minister for Water and Power Raja Pervaiz Ashraf has said that in order to overcome the worst power crisis, the government is desperately considering construction of new dams in the country. We are desperately in need to establish new dams as after the construction of Terbela no new dam has been constructed in the country, Raja told reporters here at Allama Iqbal International Airport on Friday. He said that the government is committed to provide relief to the domestic consumers of electricity and after the energy conference situation of power cuts has been reduced for the domestic consumers. Raja Pervaiz said that all the provinces were united against the energy crisis and the federal government would overcome loadshedding soon. He said that positive effects of the energy conference could be seen and Prime Minister Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani would tell the masses about benefits of the energy conservation plan on May 10. Responding to a question about the Kalabagh dam, he said that three provincial assemblies had passed resolutions against the project and unity on the issue was necessary for it. He said that two rental power plants had started power generation and others were in the pipeline. He said that the Neelum-Jhelum project was under construction and the Bhasha dam would be inaugurated in July 2010. He also said that the federal govt was following all decisions taken at the energy conference. There is no ban on the provinces to set up new power plants because the constitution of Pakistan allows it, he added.
