Fake Pictures of ‘Sahiwal Power Plant’ stir controversy on social media

The pictures of ‘Sahiwal Power Plant’ have stirred controversy on social media and the Punjab government is under fire over the issue.
According to a Twitter user, Omar r Quraishi, pictures used by the Punjab government for inauguration advertisements of Sahiwal Power Plant are in fact pictures of South African Power Plant.

On the other hand, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has lambasted the Punjab government for sharing pictures of American power plants with the latter’s tweets about the recently inaugurated Sahiwal power plant.


Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif inaugurated the first unit of Sahiwal Coal Power Project to add 660 megawatts of electricity to the national grid on Thursday.

The prime minister, who was accompanied by Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif, Punjab Governor Muhammad Rafiq Rajwana, Minister for Railways Khawaja Saad Rafiq and State Minister for Water and Power Abid Sher Ali unveiled the plaque of the project.

With a total capacity of 1320 megawatt, the project comprised two coal-based power plants with a capacity of 660 MW each. This is one of the early harvest projects of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

The prime minister also visited the control room and different portions of the power plant wherein the Chinese engineers briefed him about the functioning of the plant.

The project has been completed in a record period, six months ahead of the prescribed schedule, as the prime minister had launched work on the project on May 30, 2014.

Around 190 Pakistani young engineers trained in China have been employed for plant operations.
