Published: February 10, 2018


Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbassi inaugurated gas supply project costing Rs2.3 billion in Mianwali on Saturday.

The project will provide gas to the people of tehsil Esa Khel and its adjoining areas, Radio Pakistan reported.

Over a hundred and eighty thousand people will benefit from it according to sources.

Addressing the crowd in Mianwali, PM Abbasi said that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) will come to power again in the general elections of July 2018.

Referring to the newly inaugurated project, PM said that the gas project will change the fate of the area.

“When we came to power all the gas pipes projects were locked, we kick-started them and made sure that the projects see the light of the day,” he further added.

“From Chitral to Karachi we have actively carried out development projects,” Abbasi noted.

Discussing the Senate elections, he said that PML-N will fight those who have bought people in Senate.

“The nation will decide if they have to vote for those who work or those who curse,” he said.

Abbasi commended Punjab CM Shehbaz Sharif’s work ethic saying Punjab is buzzing with old and fresh projects and it can be vividly observed.

Country whose citizens don’t pay tax cannot flourish, says PM Abbasi

He also remarked that the incumbent government faced a lot of hindrances but never backed down and continued working hard.

PM Abbasi on Thursday said the federal government is working on introducing tax reforms that would allow maximum generation of revenue and make citizens “more responsible”.

Speaking in an interview with a private local channel, the premier said the country underwent a lot of instability ever since the Panamagate issue surfaced in November 2016, but the federal government did not let it hamper the course of national development.

He said the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) government has been inaugurating at least two national-level development projects every week and has begun implementation of the various policy decisions it made.

“We’re working on implementing FATA [reforms], we’ve banned all automatic weapons… We’re also working on introducing a tax framework that won’t only solve current problems but would also benefit future governments should they choose to keep it.”
