Of this, projects worth Rs20 billion have already been completed. In a veiled swipe at political opponents, Nawaz said that his party, the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) had prioritized servitude of the public while shunning the politics of victimization.“I have started many developmental projects even in areas of our opponent to facilitate the public,” he claimed.
