Governor Attaullah Ludin, Afghanistaninfo-icon Brishna Sherkat chief Abdul Raziq Samadi and officials from the provincial Electricity Department attended the inauguration ceremony in Ghuchko area of Jalalabad city.

Nangarhar Electricity Director Mohib Rahman Momand told Pajhwok Afghan News the substation would supply power to 20,000 families and factories and would help reduce electrical outages.

Ludin praised the national power utility for installing the new facility and hoped it would resolve electricity related problems of residents.
