Defending the surplus electricity generation, Power Secretary Dr Ahmad Kaikaus has said it has boosted the confidence of businessmen to set up industries.

He made the remarks while addressing a workshop on "Power Generation and Regional Balance" at the Bidyut Bhaban in the city on Saturday.
The comments came from the senior secretary against the backdrop of the criticism that the country has now over 4000 MW of surplus electricity which remains idle while the government has to pay a huge sum to private power producers on account of capacity payment.    -UNB
