Prime Minister Imran Khan says the construction of lift-cum-gravity project of Chashma Right Bank Canal will be a real game changer for the socio economic uplift of a vast area in southern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
He was chairing a meeting on integrated agriculture and development plan for Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, especially Chashma Right Bank Canal, in Islamabad on Thursday.
The Prime Minister said once completed, the project would irrigate around 300,000 acres of barren land in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
He said this would not only ensure food security in the region but would also earn huge foreign exchange reserves for the country by exporting agricultural produce to the Middle East.
The Prime Minister directed the authorities concerned to adopt effective measures to boost corporate farming in the area.
He said we need to exploit full potential of vast natural resources in the area for the socio-economic uplift of our people.
