LAHORE
Punjab Education Minister Rana Mashhood Ahmed Khan has said the government is committed to resolving the energy crisis. All sources, including traditional and alternate, are being used to overcome this crisis. About 4,000 schools will be shifted to solar energy during the next year. He said the PML (N) government would rid the country of load-shedding till 2017, which will help end the unemployment and economic crisis.
He expressed these views while addressing a seminar on the topic of “Energy Crisis in Pakistan, International Context and Potential Solutions” organised by Lahore Leads University, according to a handout issued on Thursday. Pro-Vice Chancellor Prof. Dr. Munawar Sultana, energy experts, and a large number of teachers and students were also present. The minister said the government was taking all measures to overcome the energy crisis which had restored the confidence of foreign investors. Agreements of energy projects are being signed with several countries including China, Turkey, and Germany, he added.
