Engineer Amir Muqam, advisor to the Prime Minister for Political and Public Affairs, and National Heritage and Culture, has stated that a number of government departments, such as the Pakistan Army, the National Disaster Management Authority, and the Pakistan Development and Management Authority, played a crucial role in the flood rescue and relief operations.
There has been the full restoration of electricity supply to all grid stations that were affected by the devastating floods in the wake of the resumption of electricity supply.
A press conference was held here at WAPDA House after he led a high-level meeting to discuss the flood damage to electricity infrastructure, including grid stations, transmission lines, and police, as well as the reconstruction of PESCO power plants following the flooding.
According to him, the government’s top priority is to provide relief to flood victims and to help them rebuild their lives as soon as possible. He said that the restoration work carried out on the damaged grid stations was prompted by instructions from Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, who had instructed the power division to restore power supply as soon as possible to flood-affected areas of the country.
The Prime Minister is personally overseeing the restoration work, according to Engineer Muqam. There has been severe damage to the electricity transmission system in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa following the recent floods, and power poles have been washed away in some areas as a result. During this difficult time, he emphasized the importance of collective work on the part of all people of the country in order to overcome the problems caused by flash floods throughout the entire country.
According to him, all damaged grid stations would be repaired as soon as possible. He said that TESCO had suffered a loss of Rs 60 million and PESCO had suffered a loss of Rs 500 million as a result of the crisis. The PM’s advisor expressed concern about the spread of disease as a result of recent floods. Due to the fact that the flood submerged the entire country, this natural disaster was different from those that happened in the past.
Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has also been affected by floods, according to the Adviser. In order to provide flood relief and rescue operations, all government departments played an important role, including the Pakistan Army, the National Disaster Management Authority, and the Pakistan Disaster Management Authority.
In response to a question, he said that people were in trouble as a result of floods and that Imran Khan was doing politics. During this difficult time, it would be better for him to stand by flood-affected people and support them.
It was earlier reported that PESCO’s senior officials met in Peshawar under the chairmanship of Advisor to the Prime Minister and President PML-N Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Engineer Amir Muqam. The PESCO chief, Gul Nabi Shah, was also present at the meeting.
In the course of the meeting, the officials briefed the Adviser to the Prime Minister on the process of delivering electricity to flood-affected areas. It is with great pride that Engineer Amir Muqam, advisor to the prime minister, has praised the WAPDA staff for their efforts during the floods.
