KARACHI: Use of imported coal in a proposed 660-megawatt power generation project raised concern at a public hearing on Monday, as the government was asked to immediately devise a short-term policy to ensure use of indigenous coal resources for electricity production.

Participants in the meeting were earlier informed that coal for the power project of Lucky Electric Power Company (LEPC), part of Lucky Cement Limited, would be imported from Indonesia, South Africa, and/or Australia.
