Following the flood damages to electricity infrastructure, including grid stations, transmission lines, and policies, he presided over a high-level meeting here at WAPDA House where he also presided over a press conference. Apart from reconstructing the Peshawar Electricity Supply Company (PESCO), he stated that the government’s top priority was to assist and rehabilitate the flood-affected population, which included residents of PESCO.
As directed by Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, the power division restored power to flood-affected areas on an emergency basis. According to Engineer Muqam, the Prime Minister personally supervises the project.
Several power poles have been washed away in some parts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa as a result of the recent floods. Because of the flash floods that have been occurring throughout the country, he stressed the importance of collective efforts.
He stated that all damaged grid stations would be repaired as soon as possible. TESCO suffered a loss of Rs 60 million, and PESCO suffered a loss of Rs 500 million. Following recent floods, the PM’s adviser expressed concern about the spread of diseases. Due to the flood, the entire country has been submerged, making this natural disaster unique.
Khyber Pakhtunkhwa was also affected by floods, as was the rest of the country, according to the Adviser. All government departments, including the Pakistan Army, the NDMA, and the PDMA, played a crucial role in flood relief and rescue operations.
He responded to a question by stating that floods were causing people problems and Imran Khan was conducting politics in the country. It would be more beneficial for him to stand by those affected by the floods at this difficult time in their lives.
A previous meeting of PESCO’s senior officials was held in Peshawar under the chairmanship of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Advisor to the PML-N, Amir Muqam. PESCO’s chief executive officer, Gul Nabi Shah, also attended the meeting.
At the meeting, the officials briefed the Adviser to the Prime Minister regarding the delivery of electricity to flood-affected areas. During the flood emergency earlier this year, engineer Amir Muqam paid tribute to the staff of WAPDA.
