Power supply line to Kabul repaired in Baghlan
PUL-I-KHUMRI (Pajhwok): The power transmission line from Uzbekistan to Kabul and other provinces has been reconnected in northern Baghlan province, an official said Monday.
Da Afghanistan Breshna Shirkat Director Sultan Ahmad Azizi told Pajhwok Afghan News the line was broken due to a clash in Dand-i-Ghori area of Pul-i-Khumri on Sunday night.
“The transmission line which supplies 150MW of electricity from Uzbekistan to Kabul and some other provinces was cut loose due to the clash between Taliban and security forces,” he added.
He said a technical team dispatched to the area had reconnected the broken wires importing electricity from Uzbekistan.
He rejected claims of any deal involving money with the Taliban in return for allowing technicians to repair the line.
