HYDERABAD: Federal Minister for Water and Power Syed Naveed Qamar on Saturday said that the government has entered into agreements with Tajikistan government for import of electricity while talks with India and Iran are in progress in the regard.

He hoped that the issue of power crisis will be settled soon. The minister said this while talking to media persons and speaking as chief guest at the inauguration ceremony of the installation of 20/26 MVA Power Transformer at 132 KV Tando Muhammad Khan Grid Station. The minister said that power crisis in the country was the result of the policies and non completion of power projects during the regime of the previous government. The people of the country could not experience such peak of load management, if the previous government initiated effective policies with completion of ongoing power projects, he said.
