KARACHI: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari said development work in all parts of Sindh including Karachi is in full swing.

“Imran Khan’s tabdeeli [change] is limited to social media,” he said while inaugurating the Manzil Pump flyover on National Highway in Karachi on Monday evening.

He added: “Not only construction of many roads are underway, the cleanliness arrangements are also improving.”

Bilawal denied claims made by the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) that there has been any accountability process of the present rulers during the government of Benazir Bhutto. “Their [PML-N] accountability during the Musharraf regime was not hard because they tendered written apology and were able to run abroad.”

Lowest provincial allocation for country’s financial hub

Speaking on the occasion, Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah said the flyover had been constructed at a cost of around Rs515 million in a “record time” of three months.

“This flyover will help in preventing traffic jams, particularly the flow of the heavy vehicles from the city’s industrial areas to the airport and then onto National Highway will be smooth and signal-free,” he added.

Local Government Minister Jam Khan Shoro told Bilawal that construction of the flyover had started on March 8, 2017.

The length of the bridge is 560 metres, including its 310-metre ramp.  The width of the three-lane carriageway is 10.9 metres.

The chief minister said the construction of the Drigh Road underpass and Submarine Chowrangi underpass was under way at a rapid pace.

The Drigh Road underpass will be inaugurated by the end of this month,” he added.

The chief minister also said Shahrah-e-Faisal had not only been reconstructed but also widened by altering the Baloch Colony flyover. “This has improved traffic flow on Shahrah-e-Faisal.”

    First correct and true statement from BBZ in a couple of months.IK has not been able to change his social media popularity into votes, why, its simple, when you do politics with hate against a particular family and not with any objective to change the social-economic condition of the masses and your style of politics is negative ( accusations,boycott,dharna etc) the end result is media presence but no votes.Recommend
