The delegation, consisting of DABS operation chief Shakeeb Ahmad Nisar and its Commercial Director Mirwais Haleemi, met with President Hamid Karzai’s brother Mahmood Karzai, provincial council members and some traders.

The meeting follows after a survey by the power utility to assess electricity problems in Kandahar and find solutions to them.
