Islamabad, January 28: (PR) Hunza Development Committee, recently formed in Islamabad, met Minister for power and energy Abid Sher Ali at his office. They discussed energy crisis in the Hunza Valley and urged the state minister to resolve the issue.
They demanded importing of electricity from China’s Xinjiang region, located across the Khunjerab border, which is likely to become a central point in the proposed Pak-China Economic Corridor.
The delegation consisted of Raja Shebaz Khan, Chairman, Naiknam Karim, Vice Chairman, Hoor Shah, Izhar Hunzai, Raja NazimulAmin, Babar Khan, Rehmat Ali, Ishaq, Naseer Ahmad and others.
