Gilgit - Baltistan

Diamer-Bhasha Dam progress reviewed


ISLAMABAD, Apr 17 (APP): Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif on Thursday said that the construction of Diamer-Bhasha Dam will not only cater for energy requirements of the country but at the same time, it would be a source of development for Gilgit-Baltistan.

The Dam will prove to be an economic milestone for the country, he said while reviewing progress on Diamer-Bhasha Dam Project here at the PM House. The Prime Minister directed that 1% of the project cost should be allocated, specifically for environmental conservation so that local vegetation and wildlife resources are not affected.
