NJ Power Project to start working by February next year: PM Abbasi
ISLAMABAD - Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has said that the government has added 10,000-megawatt electricity to the national grid in the last four and a half years.

He was addressing the inaugural ceremony of 147-megawatt Patrind Hydropower Project in Muzaffarabad on Friday.

The prime minister said the first phase of the Neelum Jhelum Power Project will start working by February next year. He said work on a number of hydropower projects including Kairot and Kohalla is in progress. He announced that the country will generate surplus power by 2030.

Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said PML-N government believes in practical work and not shallow slogans.
