Leader of the House in the Senate Shibli Faraz Tuesday said the government will make functional the

Lakhra Power Plant which was shut down due to fire incident in the underground cable tunnel on July 20, 2017.

While Advisor to Prime Minister on Parliamentary Affairs Babar Awan told Senate here that the repair

of the Lakhra plant was completed in December 2017 and Unit two is ready for operation.

Lakhra power plant has two out of three functional units of 50 megawatts each at de-rated capacity of 30 megawatts each.

Babar Awan said the persistent closure of the plant was due to negligence and the matter will be sent to National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to fix responsibility.
