LAHORE - Federal Minister for Labour and Manpower Syed Khursheed Shah has said that military dictators are responsible for all crises including energy shortage in the country and now the independent judiciary should trial all dictators from Ayyub to Musharraf by taking suo motto. Addressing a symposium on 'power crisis organised by Pakistan Engineering Congress (PEC) here on Saturday at a local hotel, the federal minister said that loadshedding would not end in December, however, it would reduce as about 3,000 megawatt would be added in the national grid system by the end of year 2009. The minister said that Pakistan had approached International Code of Law against blocking of water by India. Pakistan will not give up its right on water and will get its due share from India in any case, he said. All democratic governments and their policies were always disrupted and eradicated by the military generals and now politicians have decided not to pave way for the army rule, he said. The PPP govt and the PML-N will work together to wriggle out the public from the crises, he further added. Khursheed Shah said energy crisis was created due to lack of political wisdom and dictators were the responsible for this situation as they always cancelled the plans and policies of democratic government. Khursheed Shah opined that energy crisis was not bigger than Talibaan issue, but without public support the government could do nothing. He said we should stop criticising each other and move forward. He said to cope with the energy issue we had already initiated work on Thar Coal Project and two companies had started drilling there. President PEC Engineer Husain Ahmed said the country should plan a 'Capacity generation increase of 3000 to 4000 MW every year, which would need long term planning on pragmatic basis. He said Pakistan should utilise coal resources to curtail fuel imports and to meet capacity shortage. Pakistan had abundance of natural resources to generate power but energy crisis was only due to poor management and utilisation of these resources, he added. Hussain urged that putting political wangling aside and keeping national interest supreme on an issue of a purely technical nature, they needed to pay heed to the advice of technical experts for economic growth rather than national survival. Vice president PEC and convener symposium committee Engineer Rana Khursheed Anver said current total power generation capacity in the country is 19500 MW and the demand for electricity during summer is about 17,500 MW. The installed capacity is higher than current demand, but both WAPDA and KESC had been generating only 6,500 MW during the recent years resulting in 10-15 hours loadshedding, he added. Anver said multi purpose dams like Basha, Kalabagh, Dasu, Khori, Kuram Tangi and Munda should be taken up on fast track.
