ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Prime Minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif has said that the energy crisis gripping the nation will be brought under control by the end of three years. Addressing the National Assembly session on Thursday, he said the government is aimed at putting an end to electricity outages within three years. "Work on different energy projects is underway rapidly," he said. "These projects include two of 330 MW each in Thar based on coal. Also, two projects of 1320 MW will be completed at Port Qasim and Hub." Speaking about the Lahore-Karachi Motorway, he said that the Hyderabad-Karachi Motorway is already being constructed. "Several motorway projects will also be completed within the government’s tenure," he vowed. "It would have been better if the motorway to Karachi constructed in Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) government." He stressed the need to make Gwadar a duty-free port like the Gulf countries. "We should sit together and formulate new laws to give a special status of duty-free port to Gwadar besides a new administrative system there," he said.
