KARACHI: ‘Father of Pakistan’s nuclear program’, Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan has said that the nation is being misguided about power generation through Thar Coal as fake claims being made that 50,000 mega watts energy could be produced. He declared it intellectual dishonesty.
Speaking as chief guest at a dinner on Friday evening on the auspices of Rahnuma-e-Pakistan Forum at a local hotel, Khan made it clear that projects like Thar Coal and Reko Diq require investment of millions of dollars and state of the art equipment and technology.
He said that China has the technology and skill to extract coal from Thar reserves.
The nuclear scientist said that the country is passing through a very difficult period and country needs the sincere and honest leadership.
Dr Qadeer said that the current state of the affairs is the consequence of incompetence and dishonesty of those sitting on the helms of the affairs.
He said that all the ministries and government departments are being run by those who did not have any know how of their respective department, but busy in looting and plundering the country.
Khan claimed that Pakistan has developed world’s most modern and cheapest nuclear technology as we spent only $250 million on achieving the goal that’s why the entire world is surprised over this marvelous achievement.
He said that people were making mockery of us over my efforts to enrich uranium through a simple centrifuge machine but the world is now evident that we have achieved our task.
He said that he did not get any type of assistance from any foreigner in this task.
