Prime Minister Imran Khan has approved the solarisation of tubewells to facilitate farmers and growers in Balochistan, Radio Pakistan reported.
The decision was taken during a meeting chaired by PM Imran Khan in Islamabad on Monday.
The PM directed the Power Division and the provincial government to prepare a comprehensive plan for the execution of the solarisation project within given timelines.

Imran Khan said effective and appropriate use of subsidy is the foremost priority of the government.
