ASAD ABAD (PAN): Residents of Kunar link widespread insecurity and unavailability of electricity to hampering of development projects in the province, demanding the government to take measures to reverse the tide of lawlessness.
People say though Kunar has large water reservoirs and rivers, authorities fail to make best use of it to produce electricity.

ASAD ABAD (PAN): People in Kunar demand of the government to construct dams elsewhere in the province, which would help generate electricity and irrigate thousands acres of lands.
They are of the opinion that construction of dams would leave far-reaching positive impact on their economy.
They said Kunar River and other small rivers flow in the heart of the province while authorities are unable to kick off construction of dams. Ultimately, the waters of the rivers flow toward Pakistan without any use of it.
