    October 6, 2022 - Daily Patriot


      Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif directed on Wednesday that the Thar Coal Mines be linked to the country's railway network by March 2023. During a conference presided over by the prime minister, it was determined that the federal and Sindh governments would work together to complete the project of connecting Thar Coal Mines to the train network. Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah will sign a Memorandum of Understanding in this respect on Wednesday. The prime minister told the meeting that development projects needed to be done at "Pakistan Speed" since the previous administration had caused irreparable damage to the country during the past four years. He stated that the government was attempting to restart the development process that had been purposefully suspended by the previous administration from 2018 to 2022. "During our previous administration, we completed development projects in record time. To begin with, the previous administration suspended current development projects that were squandering public funds as a major conspiracy "He made a statement. He stated that with the connection of Thar Coal Mines to the railway network, local coal will be used in power plants instead of imported coal. Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif stated that using Thar coal in power plants will save $2 billion per year. The gathering was told that once the Thar Coal Mines were linked to the rail network, local coal will be used not only by the power plants of Jamshoro and Port Qasim, but also by other power plants and businesses in the country, saving the state money. The prime minister directed the relevant authorities to expedite construction on the project in order to finish it by March 2023. The conference was attended by federal ministers Ishaq Dar, AhsanIqbal, KhurramDastgir, special aides to Prime Minister Jahanzeb Khan, ZafaruddinMahmood, and senior officials. The meeting was attended by Railway Minister Khawaja Saad Rafiq and Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah through video conference.
