He shared the three goals of the government:

  1. Have a single electricity network
  2. Have self-sustainable electricity and transit 15,000MW of electricity from central Asia to South Asia
  3. Provide solar generated energy to provinces that cannot be connected to the electricity network

He further added that Shebrghan and Mazar-I-Sharif cities were provided with 90 megawatts of gas generated electricity with the private sector investment.
