Rs 81 Billion of Fraud of PML-N govt. ‘’accountability is compulsory’’ where PML-N still seems busy in making mechanism that how to loot more money from NANDIPUR POWER PROJECT.
DG Rangers - FIA - Anti-corruption & NAB should come forward to conduct immediate investigation to Prosecute & Execute the corrupts who gave a net loss to the country. Produced nothing but acquired loan & added more loads in national indebtedness.
Despite investing Rs. 81 billion the NANDIPUR POWER PLANT could not produce even a single mega watt but went idle & dysfunctional & PML-N govt. still plans to invest more money to this dumped project certainly further loss to the nation.
Not only PML-N but PPP also to be interrogated for the initial investment Rs. 22 billion that why it could not live & what were the barriers for completing the project timely. PPP who remained in power from 2008-13 (five years) but could not live the project.
The nation looking NAB & DG Rangers to let the people know the chemistry of Rs.22 billion consumed during PPP govt against NANDIPUR PROJECT with no result.
PML-N now in its 3rd year tenure took over the project in 2013 and on different reasons they inflated it to Rs. 81 billion even though it could not bring the plant live.
The impression was given to the nation that NANDIPUR will get the country 425 mega watts electricity to transfer national grid station and at least would be bridging the gap of 3500 mega watts.
But it was just a lollypop to the people and nothing more –still there are power crisis across the provinces. Power recession is continued from 10-12 hours on daily basis justifying daily routine power breakdown 6-8 hours in addition to the maintenance and feeder tripping occurring on every alternate day.
The imbroglio however needs a full-fledged enquiry that what happened to NANDIPUR POWER PROJECT – despite PML-N premier inauguration in June 2014 hardly it produced 94 mega watts and just next day it was shut down for unknown reason.
Shahbaz Sharif CM Punjab boasting & self aggrandizing to PML-N & thrashing PPP govt. alleging to drown the NANDIPUR POWER PROJECT but it is PML-N who revived & bolstered up, said CM Punjab
And Abid Sher Ali who is one of the close aide of PML-N seems bragging to PML-N that it is Nawaz Sharif who brought this project live while it had been projected for Rs.131 billion by PPP but PML-N did it in Rs. 81 billion – what a ridiculous really?
Pointing finger towards PPP for misappropriating the allocated sum of Rs.22 billion by CM Punjab and failed to bring the project in production - demanded to refer the case to NAB for thorough investigation and get the money back with the interest to national kitty.
Not only CM Punjab but premier himself scolded to PPP who could not bring the project to live. But PML-N could not feel the thorny words what they said for PPP.
The ball now in PML-N court and the nation asking to take PML-N into NAB to unearth the reality about NANDIPUR POWER PROJECT who plundered national wealth raising the earlier earmarked budget from Rs.22 billion to Rs.81 billion with no operation at all.
Truly unparalleled corruption of PML-N govt. that first raised the amount from Rs.22 billion to Rs.51 billion and second time from Rs 51 billion to Rs. 55 billion then 3rd time from Rs.55 billion to Rs.81 billion but project remained disconnected.
The delaying reason justified by PML-N that the machineries & equipments those had been imported during PPP tenure could not release from Karachi port resulting the material rusted and spoiled over the time.
How to play with the project - during PML-N when the plant completed its installation it was decided that oil would not be feasible for the plant then it converted to gas which added further cost of Rs.25 million by doing so it impacted the cost of end user.
When escalated with NAPRA to fix power consumer prices at Rs.18/= per unit – NAPRA refused and asked the govt. to get it down to Rs.11/75 which was not possible for the govt. to afford an additional load of subsidy of Rs 2.50 billion monthly and Rs. 30 billion annually resulting the plant NANDIPUR POWER PROJECT could not start it production and was shut down.
