 This was stated by Sindh Energy Minister Imtiaz Ahmed Sheikh during a meeting with a delegation of Energy Update led by Naeem Qureshi at his office.

Speaking on the occasion, the provincial energy minister said the Sindh government was also working on a plan to establish power plant in every city of the province to make it self-reliant to fulfill energy needs of its own residents.

 He said that Sindh had massive potential to generate much more clean electricity using its abundant potential of wind energy.
