LAHORE (92 News) – Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan today performed the ground breaking of Ravi Riverfront Urban Development project in Lahore on Tuesday.
Speaking on the occasion, the prime minister said this will be a planned city equipped with all the latest facilities. He said six million trees will be planted in it.

The premier directed the provincial government that there should not be any delay in the execution of this project. He said the federal government will fully support the provincial government in this project.
PM Khan said the government will provide the basic infrastructure in this new city project whilst the rest of the city will be raised from the investment. He expressed the confidence that our overseas Pakistanis will make the biggest investment in it.
Imran Khan said this city will have separate centers for Information and Technology and Education. He said there will also be affordable housing in the city to accommodate the poor people. He said we are also giving loans on low interest rates so that the salaried class, labourers and low income groups could own their houses.
