PM vows to to provide all possible assistance to promote film and drama
Imran Khan stressed the need to focus on producing original content instead of copying others.
He further said Pakistani nation has huge potential and we will have to repose confidence in ourselves to tap this hidden talent.
He recalled that Pakistan was leading in the drama industry and we will have to strive hard for reviving this past glory.
Moreover, he spoke on availability of water and opportunities for hydropower.
The PM said, unfortunately, past regimes did not focus on long term planning and went for short-term planning to get immediate results to win elections.
He said they signed the most expensive power generation agreements in the Subcontinent and ignored building dams to generate cheaper and clean-green energy.
He said under these agreements, the government is compelled to spend billions of rupees as capacity payments to Independent Power Producers even if we do not have the need to buy electricity from them.
Furthermore, he said these capacity payments will likely to reach 1,500 billion rupees in 2023.
He gave credit to the PTI government which decided to build two dams in Pakistan after a gap of five decades.
The PM also mentioned Mohmand Dam’s completion soon.
He said the government is focusing on hydropower to generate cheap electricity and to overcome climate change hazards as well.
