Islamabad, The Punjab Forum (PF) on Wednesday requested the Supreme Court (SC) to take notice of conspiracies against Thar Coal project.
Supreme Court should immediately take notice of the situation and initiate action against lobbies which are working to fulfil the agenda of foreign powers and multinational oil companies, said Baig Raj, President of the Punjab Forum.
Speaking at a meeting regarding energy crisis, he said that Planning Commission (PC) has sent very wrong signals by opposing Thar Coal project, says a press release.
Pakistan can never become a stabilised and energy secured country in the absence of critical projects which are being made controversial on purpose, it said. The meeting observed that some elements successfully transformed a purely technical issue of construction of KBD into a burning political issue which is keeping country insecure.
The meeting was attended by Hydel power expert engineer Shahabuddin, scientist Dr. Riaz Ahmad, general Secretary of Punjab Forum Malik Zaieem and others.
They said that India is world’s number one dam making country outside US and China, but it would block any move to build feasible dams in Pakistan. Chief Justice should take note of the situation, expose to all the characters of treachery and bring them to book, the Punjab Forum demanded.
