Speaking at a press conference, he said the construction work on the dam has started as per the vision of Prime Minister Imran Khan, lamenting that those opposing construction of dams in the country pushed the nation 50 years behind.
“Allah Almighty gave me an opportunity to complete the project that previously existed only on papers,” Faisal Vawda said. He announced he will take media teams to the construction site after upcoming Eidul Fitr.
The minister said they are perturbed over the government’s decision to start the construction work on the dam because they haven’t built any water reservoir during their stint in power.
Faisal Vawda disclosed the government spent Rs78 billion on development of the area where the dam is being constructed.
