THIS is with reference to your editorial ‘Shady transactions: DHA dealings’ (July 21). Another project about which there are many rumours is the DHA Cogen Plant Project in Karachi, which was supposed to desalinate sea water and provide 94 MW of electricity to the residents of DHA in Karachi.
This $115m project never saw the light of day, and turned out to be a flop.

If it ever gets completed, the project cost will be multiplied many times.

The DHA is least bothered and no inquiry has ever been held to fix responsibility for the failure of the project. In fact, there was some talk a few months back about adding new machinery to increase the project capacity, wasting more taxpayers’ money.
