ISLAMABAD: Senator Taj Haider has claimed that per ton coal from Thar will cost only $27 per ton on the completion of the third phase as against $270 per ton of the imported coal. Congratulating the Sindh government on the start of the third phase of Thar Coal mining project, Senator Taj Haider said electricity generation by the local coal would be the cheapest among all forms of electricity generation. “It is a pity that the govt is busy in lashing out at the opposition and targeting the ECP, instead of commencing a rail link between Islamkot and Chor for transporting cheaper Thar Coal to other power plants,” Haider said in a statement on Wednesday, adding that Gypsum was already being produced from ashes of the power plant at Thar and fertilizer would also be produced there.
