74% work on Neelum-Jhelum Hydro Power project completed: Abid

Minister of State for Water and Power Abid Sher Ali says seventy-four percent work of Neelum Jhelum power plant has been completed and it will start generating electricity by June 2017.


He said this during his visit to the Neelum Jhelum Hydro Power project on Thursday.

The Minister of State said the project was delayed due to flawed planning of previous governments.

He said completion of the project would help overcome power shortage in the country.
