By Zahiruddin

CHITRAL: Two secondary care hospitals in upper Chitral, THQ hospital Booni and rural health centre Warijun will get electricity shortly from the solar plants donated by Sarhad Rural Support Program (SRSP) after four months.

Commandant of Chitral Scouts, colonel Nizam Ud Din Shah, handed over the plants to the district health officer, Dr. Israrullah in a function held here on Friday and expressed his gratitude to chief executive officer of SRSP who provided the much needed solar systems on his special request.

He eulogize the role of SRSP in the development of Chitral in different sectors with special emphasis on hydro power generation and played commanding role during the last two natural disasters in the form of torrential floods and earthquake.

“From north to South, one can see network of small and micro hydro-power projects launched by the organization which will solve the problem of power once and for all”, he said.

He mentioned Arandu-Kamsai road as the one sponsored by the organization apart from the ten numbers of mini and micro hydro power projects which were on the verge of completion and were schedueled to be commissioned to work by the month of June next.

He said that Chitral Scouts played a leading role in the development of the district by monitoring the development projects executed by the government departments on one side and ensuring coordination between different NGOs to prioritize the projects and evade their duplication.

Talking on occasion, the internal auditor of SRSP, Engineer Khadimullah said that the hospitals of Booni and Warijun were without electricity since the last four months as the hydro power station of Reshun was washed away by torrential floods which fed the area.

He said that the solar system will be activated in the hospitals within two days to electrify them for which the people waited for long.

The member of zilla council from Booni, Rahmat Ghazi and Moulana Javed Hussain from Warijun were also present on the occasion.
