Prime Minister (PM) Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has said that unruly elements in the country had spread chaos in the country over the last four years to stop the development agenda of Pakistan Muslim League - Nawaz (PML-N), reported Express News.

Speaking at the inauguration ceremony of the international terminal in Sialkot airport, Abbasi said that the business community in the city had contributed funds for the establishment of the terminal.

"This is the first green-field airport project that has been successful. National Highway Authority (NHA) is working on more development works in the area. The Nandipur project was started in 2006, and our government completed it," he said, touting the successes of the PML-N tenure.

The prime minister noted that his government had finished the projects that it had started. "We completed 10 thousand megawatts worth of energy projects which will bring the cost of electricity down," he added.

"During the last four years, unruly elements spread chaos in the country to create hindrances in our way, but despite their mischief, our government has eliminated electricity shortages, and managed to keep other problems in the power sector from worsening further," Abbasi said.

Balochistan crisis

Prime Minster Abbasi is also due in Quetta today to decrease political tensions following attempts by members of the provincial government to submit a motion of no-confidence against Chief Minister (CM) Sanaullah Zehri.

Opposition leader Moulana Wassy has confirmed to The Express Tribune that PM Abbasi had called him to schedule a meeting in this regard, but he had refused it.

The premier is expected to meet former chief minister Abdul Malik Baloch and Pakhtunkhwa Milli Awami Party chief Mehmood Khan Achakzai to enlist their support to defeat the motion.
