PowerPakistan has stalled the plan to import up to 4,000 megawatts of electricity from India due to rising extreme anti-Pakistan sentiments, official from the Ministry of Water and Power said.

The official said that not only India under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi is allegedly against the peace talks but is now encouraging extremist group to attack Pakistani visitors in the country.

How can Pakistan go ahead with the import when India is taking extreme posture against Pakistan, he added.

Water and Power Minister Khawaja Asif, in a written statement to the Senate, said no progress has taken place even though M/s Adani Enterprises Ltd (AEL) had submitted a proposal of the export of 500-800MWs, which would eventually scale up to 3,500-4,000MWs.

Pakistan at the present is negotiating with Tehran to import of 1000MW, which could later increase to 3000MW and is also planning to import electricity from Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan.
