KARACHI, Pakistan: President Dr Arif Alvi on Saturday inaugurated the Solar Power Project “Roshni Se Zindagi” in Karachi.

The solar power project “Roshni Se Zindagi”, which has already been kickstarted by Hilton Pharmaceuticals under initiative of corporate social responsibility in two rural areas of Sindh (Baba Bhit Island and Gharo), will be providing solar generated electricity to around 10,000 people throughout Pakistan in coming three years.

In his remarks while inaugurating the solar power project, the president said that Pakistan is the sixth most populous country of the world but unfortunately 25% of our population is still deprived of basic facility of electricity.

The president said that since we have increasingly consumerist society, the solar panel manufacturing should start in Pakistan to provide electricity to the remotest areas. He said that solar energy will also reduce imminent threat of global warming.

While appreciating efforts of Hilton Pharmaceuticals, Dr Arif Alvi said that Pakistan has gone far ahead than other neighbouring countries in producing development projects of philanthropists and charities under corporate social responsibility.

“Karachi city has never faced any financial issue for development related projects due to such philanthropists and volunteers,” He added.
