No irregularity in solar power project: govt

LAHORE: The Punjab government says the Auditor General of Pakistan’s `preliminary observations’ about the solar power project in Bahawalpur are not based on facts.

The AGP report (published in Dawn’s March 24 issue) said its auditors have detected irregularities in the award of the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) and operation and maintenance (O&M) contracts for the establishment of 100 megawatt solar plant under the Quaid-i-Azam Solar Power Private Limited (QASPL) to a private firm.
