THINK SERIOUSLY BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Editor’s Note: Kindly make it a campaign and pass this information  to your friends & family  to make Government understand the losses to be borne by the country in longer run in case Hydro Power is neglected. 

THINK SERIOUSLY BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE

 

  “Save the country, build more Dams and Water Reservoirs to generate cheap electricity and help the industry to increase export and decrease imports, hence help lower the debts.Rather then wasting  huge amount on obsolete & scrap Coal Plants . “


Pakistan can only gain, if funds allocated for scrap & obsolete Coal Plants producing high cost electricity, hazardous  creating environmental issues are diverted for construction of Dams & Water reservoir for production of cheap Hydro Power. God has bestowed upon us a natural sources to produce  around  50000 MWs  environmentally clean Hydro Power  plus an additional potential of generating capacity in Punjab & Sindh through run of Canals & River. The cost of electricity produced through Hydel power Plants cost Rs. 1.5/ unit  while power from Coal Plant costs in our country around  Rs.9.25/unit ,
 
Adopting this,  we can save water  for development of our agriculture sector, as well as production of  the cheapest electricity essentially required for the growth of Industries. .
 
 This is an only source accepted internationally for producing Cheap Electricity. 
 
  No matter it may take some time but in the longer run, it would be beneficial for the country to prosper, literally  a vertical take off .  The cheapest energy will boost every sector in the country.  
 
We wish our rulers get sincere with the country, take advantage of God Gifted resources, honestly divert available funds in the right direction. There is no reason Pakistan may not prosper. 
 Instead of making more highways and trains, build more dams to generate cheap electricity and help the industry to increase export and decrease imports, hence help lower the debts.
 

Kindly make it a campaign and pass this information  to your friends & family  to make Government understand the losses to be borne by the country in longer run in case Hydro Power is neglected.

Dear Pakistani’s  Read & Think!!!!! (THIS IS THE ELECTRICITY GAME PLAYED BY OUR PRESENT LEADERS IN PAKISTAN)
Dear Pakistanis !
 
Read, Think & understand the game International Powers are playing with us with the help of ?Who-  Zardari ? IMF ?

Electricity produced in Pakistan is from three main sources.
1). Hydral
2). Thermal (Gas/Steam/Furnace Oil)
3). Nuclear
There are four major power producers in country which include Water & Power Development Authority (WAPDA), Karachi Electric Supply Company (KESC), Independent Power Producers (IPPs) and Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission (PAEC).
Below is the break-up of the installed capacity of each of these power producers (as of June-2008).

Hydel Electricity generated by WAPDA varies between two extremities i.e. between minimum of 2414 MW and maximum of 6761 MW depending upon the river flow through the whole year.
Total Power Generation Capacity of Pakistan (including all sources) is 19855 MW and the electricity demand (as of today 20-04-2010) is 14500 MW and PEPCO is merely generating 10000 MW.
So it is obvious that these 15-20 hrs power shutdowns in most parts of the country are not because of the lack of generation capacity but only because of IMF / World Bank policies imposed on our nation by the Government. The Power Generation companies are not buying Furnace Oil from PSO by saying they don’t have money to do that but we are all paying for Electricity that is generated from Furnace Oil. This is the reason that top refineries like PRL are operating at 40% capacities. IMF / World bank has imposed to reduce budget deficit by importing less crude oil. But due to this fact all our industries are under severe crisis. None of our political party who are in Assembly is ready to speak on it because everyone is blessed by US / IMF / World Bank.
Dear Pakistani’s,
This is a time to show your social activism your power and strength. It is your silence which is deafening and your couldn’t care less attitude which makes the people in power more powerful evasive and secure in their Air conditioned offices.
WE WANT ELECTRICITY IN PAKISTAN.
Electricity now is @11 Rs. per unit, and it will increase after every two months as directed by (American) IMF policies.
 
 
These people are there because of your votes. Let them serve you rather than rule you……
 

NOW THIS IS OUR TIME TO SHOW THE GOVERNMENT YOUR STRENGTH.

PLEASE SPREAD THIS MESSAGE AS MUCH AS YOU CAN, BECA– — USE OF THIS MESSAGE MANY PEOPLE WOULD COME TO KNOW ABOUT THE TRUTH

 

 

 

توانائی کا بحران، سنجیدہ اقدامات ضرورت

تحریر: غزن بہزاد
پاکستان سمیت دنیا کے متعدد ممالک اس وقت توانائی کے بحران کا شکار ہیں جس کے باعث انہیں معیشت کے ساتھ ساتھ روزمرہ زندگی میں بھی کئی مسائل کا سامنا ہے۔ دنیا بھر کے ماہرین یہ جائزہ لینے میں مصروف ہیں کہ اس بحران کی نوعیت کیا ہے؟ کیا یہ عالمی رخ اختیار کرسکتا ہے ؟ اور یہ کہ اس صورتحال پر بھارت اور چین جیسے ممالک کی تیزی سے ترقی کرتی معیشتیں کیا اثرات ڈال رہی ہیں؟
ؔ اس وقت دنیا کی مضبوط ترین معیشتیں بھی توانائی کے بحران سے مکمل طور پر محفوظ نہیں۔ مغربی و امریکی تجزیہ کاروں کے مطابق اس وقت دنیا کے متعدد ممالک کو توانائی کی شدید قلت کا سامنا ہے، لیکن اس کی نوعیت تاحال بین الاقوامی نہیں، تاہم خام تیل کی قیمت ۱۵۰ سے ۲۰۰ ڈالر فی بیرل ہو جانے کی صورت میں توانائی کا عالمی بحران پیدا ہوسکتا ہے۔ انفرادی سطح پر دنیا کے اکثر ممالک کو توانائی کی قلت کا سامنا ہے، جو کبھی بجلی، تیل اور کبھی ایندھن کی کمی کی صورت میں عام لوگوں کی زندگیوں کو متاثر کررہی ہے۔
ماہرین کی اکثریت اس بات سے متفق ہے کہ توانائی کے بحران کی ایک بڑی وجہ دنیا کا تیل پر حد سے زیادہ انحصار ہے۔ ماہرین کی جانب سے ابھرتی ہوئی معیشتوں، مثلاً چین، بھارت اور برازیل جیسے ممالک کی تیز رفتار صنعتی ترقی کو توانائی کے بحران کیلئے مورد الزام ٹھہرایا جارہا ہے۔ ان معیشتوں میں ترقی کی رفتار دیگر صنعتی ممالک کے مقابلے میں سالانہ اندازاً ۳ فیصد زائد ہے، اور یہی وجہ ہے کہ ان ممالک میں توانائی اور دیگر خام مال کا استعمال بھی دنیا کے ترقی یافتہ ممالک کے مقابلے میں کہیں زیادہ ہے۔ دوسری جانب کچھ اقتصادی ماہرین کا یہ بھی کہنا ہے کہ توانائی کی قلت کے بڑھتے ہوئے مسئلے کیلئے صرف ابھرتی ہوئی معیشتوں کو ذمہ دار ٹھہرانا انصاف نہیں، کیونکہ اس قلت کی اصل وجہ توانائی کے وسائل میں اضافے اور متبادل ذرائع کی تلاش کیلئے مناسب منصوبہ بندی کا فقدان ہے۔
اس میں کوئی شک نہیں کہ توانائی کے بحران سے، خواہ کسی بھی قسم کا ہو، پاکستان جیسے ترقی پذیر ممالک کے عوام نسبتاً زیادہ متاثر ہوتے ہیں، لیکن سوال یہ ہے کہ آخر اس کا حل کیا ہوسکتا ہے؟ ہنگامی صورتحال کیلئے بین الاقوامی سطح پر خام تیل کے ذخائر میں اضافہ، طویل مدت کیلئے تیل کی ایک بہتر اور مستحکم قیمت برقرار رکھنا اور کاربن سے پاک توانائی کی اقسام کے استعمال کی حوصلہ افزائی جیسے اقدامات سے اس مسئلے کا پائیدار حل تلاش کیا جا سکتا ہے۔
عالمی درجہ حرارت میں اضافہ توانائی کی قلت کے مسئلے کی شدت میں بھی مزید اضافہ کا باعث بن رہا ہے۔ گزشتہ کچھ عرصہ سے بھارت اور چین کے علاوہ چند دیگر ممالک میں بھی توانائی کے متبادل ذرائع کی تلاش اور ان کا استعمال بڑھانے کی کوششوں میں اضافہ دیکھنے میں آرہا ہے۔ ماہرین کو توقع ہے کہ یہ ممالک نہ صرف متبادل ذرائع سے اپنی توانائی کی بڑھتی ہوئی ضروریات پوری کرنے میں آگے بڑھ سکیں گے، بلکہ آلودگی کے مسئلے پر قابو پانے میں بھی پیش رفت کرنے میں کامیاب ہوجائیں گے۔
جنوبی ایشیاء کا انتہائی اہم ملک پاکستان اپنی توانائی کی ضروریات پوری کرنے کیلئے بجلی، قدرتی گیس، پیٹرولیم، کوئلے اور لکڑی پر انحصار کرتا ہے، جبکہ ماہرین کے مطابق قدرتی وسائل سے مالامال ہونے اور توانائی کی فراہمی کے بنیادی ڈھانچے کی موجودگی کے باوجود اس شعبے میں پاکستان کو درپیش مسائل کی بنیادی وجہ گذشتہ ۶ دہائیوں میں حکومتوں کی جانب سے مناسب منصوبہ بندی نہ کرناہے۔
اس وقت پاکستان کو درپیش ایک اہم مسئلہ بجلی کی طلب و رسد میں توازن نہ ہونا ہے۔ پاکستان کو اس وقت تقریباً ۶ ہزار میگا واٹ بجلی کی کمی کا سامنا ہے۔ تجزیہ کاروں کے مطابق پاکستان کو بجلی کی ضروریات پوری کرنے کیلئے نجی شعبے کو اپنے ساتھ شامل کرنے کے علاوہ نجی اور عوامی پارٹنرشپ کی بھی حوصلہ افزائی کرنا ہوگی۔ دوسرا حل پاکستان میں کم بجلی سے چلنے والے الیکٹرونک آلات کی فراہمی پر توجہ دینا ہو سکتا ہے۔ ایک تخمینے کے مطابق پاکستان میں پانی اور جوہری ذرائع سے بجلی کی پیداوار تقریباً ۱۳ ہزار میگا واٹ، جبکہ بجلی کی مجموعی طلب تقریباً ۱۹ ہزار میگا واٹ ہے۔
پاکستان کی ۴۰ صد آبادی بجلی کی سہولت سے تاحال محروم ہے۔ ماہرین کا کہنا ہے کہ پاکستان کی بجلی کی ضروریات آئندہ ۲۰ سال میں ۳۵۰ فیصد تک بڑھ جائیں گی۔ بجلی کی پیداوار بڑھانے اور پانی کے مسائل پر قابو پانے کیلئے ماہرین کے مطابق پاکستان میں نئے ڈیمز کی تعمیر اور بجلی کی تقسیم کے نظام میں موجودہ خرابیاں دور کرنے کی اشد ضرورت ہے۔ ماہرین کا کہنا ہے کہ بجلی کی کمی کے باعث پاکستان کا ۵۰ فیصد صنعتی شعبہ تباہ ہو چکا ہے جبکہ اس کے نتیجے میں بڑھتی ہوئی بے روزگاری دیگر مسائل کی وجہ بن رہی ہے۔
ایک اندازے کے مطابق اس وقت پاکستان اپنی توانائی کی ضروریات کا ۷۹ فیصد تیل اور گیس سے پورا کرتا ہے۔ پاکستان چونکہ اپنی تیل کی ضروریات کا محض ۲۰ فیصد ہی مقامی طور پر حاصل کرتا ہے، اسلئے پیٹرولیم مصنوعات کے سلسلے میں پاکستان کا زیادہ دارومدار دیگر تیل پیدا کرنے والے ممالک پر ہے، جس سے پاکستانی معیشت پر نہ صرف شدید دباؤ ہے بلکہ اس کے ساتھ عوام اور صنعتی شعبہ بھی اس سے براہ راست متاثر ہو رہا ہے۔
پاکستان میں قدرتی گیس کے ذخائرکی موجودگی توانائی کے شعبے پر موجودہ دباؤ کو کم کرنے میں اہم کردار ادا کر سکتی ہے لیکن بلوچستان میں گیس پائپ لائنوں کو دھماکوں سے تباہ کئے جانے کے متعدد واقعات نے قدرتی گیس کی فراہمی کے بنیادی ڈھانچے کو شدید نقصان پہنچایا ہے۔ تجزیہ کاروں کے مطابق توانائی کے مسائل حل کرنے کیلئے پاکستانی حکومت کو قدرتی وسائل کے بہتر استعمال کو یقینی بنانا ہوگا۔
پاکستان کوئلے کے موجودہ ذخائرکے لحاظ سے دنیا میں چھٹے نمبر پر ہے۔ اس ضمن میں پاکستانی حکومت سال ۲۰۱۸ء تک توانائی کیلئے کوئلے پر انحصار ۷ سے ۱۸ فیصد تک بڑھانے کا ارادہ بھی رکھتی ہے، لیکن کوئلے سے توانائی حاصل کرنے کے منصوبوں پر کام کرنا پاکستان کیلئے ایک پیچیدہ معاملہ ہے۔
پاکستان میں گزشتہ ۵ سال کے دوران آنے والی دو بڑی قدرتی آفات کے نتیجے میں بھی توانائی کے بنیادی ڈھانچے کو زبردست نقصان پہنچا ہے، جبکہ دہشت گردی اورملک کی مجموعی غیر یقینی صورتحال بھی توانائی کے شعبے میں بیرونی سرمایہ کاری کی راہ میں حائل ہو رہی ہے۔
توانائی کے شعبے سے وابستہ ماہرین کا کہنا ہے کہ پاکستان کی بڑھتی آبادی کے ساتھ توانائی کے مسائل میں بھی اضافہ ہوگا، جن پر قابو پانے کیلئے فوری اور طویل المدتی منصوبوں پر ترجیحی بنیادوں پر عمل درآمد ضروری ہے، کیونکہ اب یہ پاکستان کے سیاسی استحکام کا معاملہ بھی بنتا جارہا ہے۔

Money Launderers Sharifs used paper mill to whiten money, Dar told court in 2000

Sharifs used paper mill to whiten money, Dar told court in 2000
ISLAMABAD, Nov 12 The Musharraf government prepared a money laundering reference against PML-N leaders Mian Nawaz Sharif and Mian Shahbaz Sharif in 2000 on the basis of a statement recorded by one of their trusted lieutenants, Senator Ishaq Dar, according to a court document seen by Dawn here on Thursday.

Unknown-49-1

 

Senator Dar`s handwritten statement, given before a magistrate back on April 25, 2000, had alleged that Sharif brothers used the Hudaibya Paper Mills as cover for money laundering during the late 1990s.

The reference was prepared on the orders of then president Pervez Musharraf, but it was shelved after the Sharif brothers went into exile in December of the same year.

The Musharraf government tried to reopen the reference in 2007 after Nawaz Sharif announced his return to the country.

The confessional statement of Senator Ishaq Dar was recorded before a district magistrate in Lahore. He was brought to the court from a jail by Basharat Shahzad, who was then serving as assistant director in the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA).

According to legal experts, the senator`s deposition was an `irrevocable statement` as had been recorded under section 164 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC).

Senator Ishaq Dar has always been regarded as one of the closest aides of the Sharif family, and is now also a relative as his son is married to Nawaz Sharif`s younger daughter.

However, the NAB record clearly shows that back in 2000 he had agreed to give a written statement against the Sharifs about their alleged involvement in money laundering.

The top PML-N leaders had hit a rough patch by then as some of their lieutenants were busy developing a new political system for Gen Pervez Musharraf after his Oct 1999 military coup.

In the statement, Ishaq Dar accused Nawaz and Shahbaz Sharif of money laundering in the Hudaibiya Paper Mills case. At one point in the 43-page statement, Mr Dar said that on the instructions of Mian Nawaz Sharif and Shahbaz Sharif, “I opened two foreign currency accounts in the name of Sikandara Masood Qazi and Talat Masood Qazi with the foreign currency funds provided by the Sharif family in the Bank of America by signing as Sikandara Masood Qazi and Talat Masood Qazi”.

He said that all instructions to the bank in the name of these two persons were signed by him under the orders of “original depositors”, namely Mian Nawaz Sharif and Mian Shahbaz Sharif.

“The foreign currency accounts of Nuzhat Gohar and Kashif Masood Qazi were opened in Bank of America by Naeem Mehmood under my instructions (based on instructions of Sharifs) by signing the same as Nuzhat Gohar and Kashif Masood Qazi.”

The document shows Dar stated that besides these foreign currency accounts, a previously opened foreign currency account of Saeed Ahmed, a former director of First Hajvari Modaraba Co and close friend of Dar, and of Mussa Ghani, the nephew of Dar`s wife, were also used to deposit huge foreign currency funds provided by “the Sharif family” to offer them as collateral to obtain different direct and indirect credit lines.

Senator Dar had disclosed that the Bank of America, Citibank, Atlas Investment Bank, Al Barka Bank and Al Towfeeq Investment Bank were used under the instructions of the Sharif family.

Interestingly enough, Ishaq Dar also implicated himself by confessing in court that he — along with his friends Kamal Qureshi and Naeem Mehmood — had opened fake foreign currency accounts in different international banks.

Mr Dar said an amount of $3.725 million in Emirates Bank, $ 8.539 million in Al Faysal Bank and $2.622 million were later transferred in the accounts of the accounts Hudaibya Paper Mills.

He said that the entire amount in these banks finally landed in the accounts of the paper mills.

The Hudaibiya Paper Mills case is still pending in the National Accountability Bureau.

If it is opened again, the Sharif brothers may be in for a rude shock a confidant is to blame for the albatross around their necks.

In this regard Dawn made repeated efforts to contact Senator Dar on telephone, but without luck as his mobile number was switched off and he did not reply to text messages.

NAB launches $32 million money laundering scandal inquiry against Nawaz Sharif

Nawaz SharifISLAMABAD: The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) on Thursday said it has started investigations against the Sahrif brothers in a $32 million money laundering scandal.

“The reference against Sharif brothers was sent by Interior Minister Rehman Malik and it will be decided on merit,” NAB spokesman Zafar Iqbal said while addressing a media briefing at the NAB headquarters. Replying to a question about the reports that President Asif Ali Zardari has directed the NAB chairman to initiate an inquiry against the Sharifs and reopen pending cases against them, the spokesman said the president had only directed the NAB chairman to ensure that there was no political victimisation. Malik had earlier claimed he had evidence to prove that the PML-N leaders were involved in laundering $32 million.

Iqbal said NAB has so far recovered Rs 2.012 billion from Rental Power Plants (RPPs) on the directives of the Supreme Court (SC). Giving details, he said Rs 109 million were recovered from Pakistan Power House and Walter International, Rs 546 million from Techno Engineering, Rs 50 million from Young Generation, Rs 225 million from Gulf company and Rs 100 million from Reshma company. The bureau has recorded the statements of former power minister Raja Pervaiz Ashraf, Shaukat Tareen and Liaquat Jatoi, but no money has been recovered from them, he said, adding the three will be summoned again if needed.

The NAB spokesman said the Interior Ministry has not yet put the names of ministers involved in RPPs’ case on the Exit Control List (ECL) despite a request by NAB. Responding to a question, he said that nobody has been given clean chit in the case, rather NAB is in the process of recovery from the RPPs. Moreover, the bureau has also sent its teams to inspect the sites of RPPs and teams are busy finalising their reports. Iqbal said NAB was in contact with an army team questioning generals named in NLC corruption reference.

Sharifs responsible for energy crisis

Thar coal reserves

KARACHI: The present energy crisis could be linked to perceived myopic policies of former premier and PML-N chief Mian Nawaz Sharif when he ended the energy projects of Thar coal and Keti Bandar initiated by slain premier Benazir Bhutto, Sindh Minister for Information Sharjeel Inam Memon said on Monday.

Speaking at a press conference at the New Sindh Secretariat, the minister responding to allegations of Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif said that the then PPP-led government had started work for utilisation of the Thar coal reserves for power generation. He added that the myopic policies of subsequent government led by PML-N resulted in scrapping of the same, otherwise now the country would have been in a position to export power.

After coming into power, the present government has revived the Thar coal project and has given preference to small power projects up to 10 megawatts in the country especially in Sindh to overcome the power crisis. He regretted that Sharif rothers tended to do politics on sensitive issues like rain devastation in Sindh province. Memon said that it was not easy task to provide relief of over eight million displaced persons but the government is utilising all available resources for relief and rehabilitation of the victims.

The minister claimed that around 40-50pc accumulated rainwater in devastated districts have been drained out, enabling the farmers to sow Rabi (winter) crops like wheat. He said it was not advisable for the PML-N leadership to do politics over the rain destruction in Sindh.

He also accused the Sharif brothers of committing corruption and earning money through illegal means. He claimed that the PML-N leaders had got billions of rupees loans written off by the banks while recently, Senator Ishaq Dar publicly admitted that money laundering was committed on instructions of Nawaz Sharif when he was prime minister.

The Sindh minister also alleged that PML-N chief was speaking the language of the West against Pak Army after killing of al-Qaeda chief, Osama bin Laden on May 2, 2011 in the US operation in Abbottabad.

Memon said that Nawaz Sharif had forgotten that he himself was a product of ambitious military generals. He said that the Sharif brothers supported those military generals who perpetrated the dictatorship in the country.
