The Prime Minister has said that the global warming is causing many problems, including flooding and the dams will protect the country from the effects of global warming. He said if we preserve the water of glaciers, we can provide water to our farmers throughout the year.

“Mohmand Dam and Bhasha dams will be completed in 2025 and 2028 respectively that will help protect the future generations. These dams will also contribute to long life of Tarbela Dam,” the Premier said, adding that a decision to construct Bhasha Dam was made in 1984, but it could not be materialized, and the country had to suffer.

PM Imran Khan has said that the the previous governments signed contracts for costly power production, which added burden to people.

The Chief Minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Mahmood Khan and Speaker of National Assembly Asad Qaiser were also present on the occasion among others.
