    Nandipur Power Project Fraud - PMLN at its best again!

    PMLN is best at fooling public with their showoff and media tactics. Rigging elections is another thing, wasting money on such projects which do nothing but PR for the most corrupt party is on a whole new level. PMLN is master of that.

    Mystery shrouds 425MW Nandipur plant


    LAHORE: The operation of 425MW Nandipur plant, which was inaugurated by the prime minister on May 30, is shrouded in mystery. Its Managing Director Mehmood Ahmad has claimed that the plant contributed 95MW to the national grid during peak hours on Sunday, but everyone else in the system denied his claim.

    Talking to Dawn on Monday, Mr Ahmad insisted that the plant was run on diesel the previous day and it contributed 95MW to the system. “From now onwards, the plant will generate 95MW daily during peak hours if diesel is made available,” he said.

    But the plant’s employees and officials of the National Transmission and Dispatch Company (NTDC) and Pakistan Electric Power Company (Pepco) denied that plant had contributed power to the system or it was in a position to function unless the government risked the “collapse of entire plant.”

    Pepco data shows no increase in power generation in a year

    Mr Ahmad said: “Although the plant is available round the clock, is not being run for 24 hours because it is too expensive to generate electricity with diesel and it is not yet ready on furnace oil. It is a misconception that the plant was shut down three days after its inauguration because it was unable to generate power on anything, but furnace oil.”

    An official at the NTDC said: “It is technically unfeasible to operate the plant in the current circumstances. Otherwise, there was no need to close it down three days after its inauguration by none other than the prime minister. It needs furnace oil treatment plant (FOTP) and everyone in the system knows it.

    “The treatment plant was not ready when the prime minister was invited to inaugurate it. The letter of credit for parts of the treatment plant is being opened now and it will take almost three months for them to arrive and being installed. Till then it will be highly risky to run the plant on something it has not been designed for.”

    An employee at the plant said that a request had come from the management on Sunday for temporary running of the plant for a few hours, but the engineering, procurement and construction contractor refused to oblige, saying he would not be responsible for any damage if the plant was operated on diesel.

    “People at the plant are well aware of the pressure the government is facing because of the power crisis and each megawatt now counts, but risk to the plant is too high to be taken,” he said.

    The Pepco official said the plant had been inaugurated prematurely for political reason. “But the problem is that technology hardly understands politics and that is precisely where things are stuck now. Pressure is increasing on the government but technology is not responding. If all parts arrive in time, the plant will be ready by December. But if there is any problem, things can extend up to March next year,” he said.

    These kinds of frauds (or worse, modeltowngate) involving the government are happening every month, but the public doesn't seem to care. Especially in Lahore you meet people daily who talk about the great changes Shahbaz Sharif will bring.

    Some people who love qeemay walay naan actually fall for these projects.

    The metro buses are a farce. They are built by GOVERNMENT's money on a much higher cost than required, NO INVESTMENT from outside in them, no public-private partnerships which are required on such projects.

    These are going to hurt Pakistan and its economy A LOT in the long run. People look at these and say "OMG PMLN is doing something!!" ... While actually they're hurting Pakistan, eating the roots of Pak economy.

    I'm proud of the fact that PTI is actually working on people, institutions, education and laws in KP. They're also starting infrastructure projects but with public-private partnerships and seeking investment in them.

    The metro bus has made thousands of lives easier who can't afford cars. Who cares if it is subsidised by the government. The people pay taxes, they deserve government subsidies. Better spend them on welfare of people than submarines and f16s.

    Infrastructure makes lives easier, but not at the cost of making a mockery out of institutions, nepotism and misuse of public money.

    There's a proper way of investing in infrastructure projects like metro, mass transit etc. The way they're going, they're hurting economy as well.

    PTI has initiated Peshawar Mass Transit system here, it was a fully transparent proper procedure. First feasibility study, then call for tenders and investments.
