The senators include Awami National Party (ANP)’s Senator Haji Adiel, Senator Alyas Baloch and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP)’s Senator Fatha Hasni who view Thar coal power project as a futile one.
Senators said that, “Dr Samar Mubarakmand has been taking money for last four years and hasn’t succeeded yet to develop even single megawatt electricity”.
Criticizing Samar Mubarakmand at the meeting of Senates Standing Committee on Finance, senators said that his project was nothing but a waste.
“He first deteriorated the Reko Diq project,” they noted and added now he was making claims to generate gas from Thar coal.
“Reko Diq project, which was put on sideline by authorities, should be given to Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan.”
Earlier Dr Samar Mubarakmand said in an interview “I am a member of Planning Commission and I will not make money from the project,”
Founding team leader of Pakistan’s Nuclear Program Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan has also criticized Dr. Samar Mubarakmand alleging the latter one is be-fooling the nation on Thar Coal Power Project.
