PTI’s govt intentionally delayed development pace in Punjab: PM


LAHORE:

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Sunday said that previous government of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) had deliberately interrupted the development pace in Punjab which was initiated by the Pakistan Muslim League -Nawaz (PML-N) government.

The premier expressed his views during a high-level meeting to review the ongoing public welfare and other proposed projects in the province and said that instead of initiating new uplift projects, the earlier ones initiated by the PML-N government were put to halt, adding that the people of Punjab were avenged for their support to the party.

The meeting was attended by Caretaker Chief Minister Punjab Syed Mohsin Naqvi, PM’s advisor Ahad Khan Cheema and federal and provincial authorities, PM Office Media Wing said in a press release.

The attendees were given a detailed briefing on the construction work on the Imamia colony flyover project in Lahore and the prime minister also directed concerned departments for early completion of the project for public use.

Addressing the participants, PM Shehbaz said that during the last four years of the previous government, the affairs of the province were “handed over to an incompetent and puppet chief minister”.

“Instead of focusing on the progress of the province, the office of the chief minister was misused for political manoeuvering at the federal level,” he added.

The premier further observed that these public welfare-oriented projects which should have been completed continued to hit snags for years during the previous government’s tenure.

The participants were further briefed about the proposed Lahore-Sialkot motorway link road to facilitate the people of Gujranwala.

Shehbaz directed the chief minister to constitute a three-member committee in this regard that would give a detailed briefing on the project in the next meeting.
