Infrastructure uplift: PM cautions those hindering development

Nawaz inaugurates Sangla Hill interchange


APP November 12, 2016

SANGLA HILL: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Friday cautioned all those creating hurdles in the way of development that they would fail miserably.

“This is the agenda of Pakistan’s development. Some people are trying to stop this. But it will not stop, as the people of Pakistan are with Nawaz Sharif, and we will continue to pursue the agenda of development,” he told a huge public gathering after inaugurating the Sangla Hill interchange at the Faisalabad-Pindi Bhatian Motorway.

Referring to various development projects initiated or completed during the last three years, the premier said “Those who are creating hurdles do not want to see cheaper electricity and the end of load-shedding.”

“But their agenda will fail, and ours will succeed,” he added.

Prime Minister Nawaz said the CPEC was changing the fate of Pakistan, including that of Balochistan and Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa. “Look at K-P, where they wanted to make a new Pakistan. But now we are making a new Pakistan there through construction of motorways and bringing electricity,” he remarked.

He added that the menace of terrorism has been curbed to a large extent across the country. “Look at the Pakistan of today and that of three years back. The world is recognising that Pakistan is moving ahead with development.”

The PM said that due to the government’s development agenda, unemployment would end, poor people would prosper and illiteracy would be eliminated. He said his government was working day and night to end electricity load-shedding by 2018.

He said Pakistan Railways and PIA, which were on the declining path during the previous regimes, have been revived under his government.

Premier Nawaz announced the provision of Sui gas to Sangla Hill as well as in the villages of NA-103. He also announced the restoration of an underpass in Sangla Hill at Lahore-Faisalabad Railway track and said work on it would be initiated soon. He also announced the construction of a 250-bed hospital in Nankana Sahib as well and said the Faisalabad-Sahinawala Expressway would be extended till Sangla Hill.
