PTI leadership is seen on containers instead of serving masses: PM
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Criticizing Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has on Tuesday said that whenever Pakistan starts its journey of development under his leadership, someone always emerge to disrupt the country’s development.
Addressing the central council of the party on Tuesday at the convention centre, he said: “Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) will sweep Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) during general 2018 elections as the people of KP voted for PTI on the slogan of change but the party leader is seen only on containers instead of serving the masses.”
The prime minister said that the real change is being brought about by PML-N and the international community has also acknowledged this. “Pakistan is today counted among fast emerging economies of the globe and Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX) is one of the five best performing markets of the world, while inflation has also declined as compare to 2013,” he said. He said prices of petroleum prices have also come down.
Sharif said that a number of energy projects are underway and electricity load-shedding will be eliminated by 2018, adding that all resources of energy including Hydel, wind, solar and nuclear are being exploited and 10,000megawatt will be added in the national grid by 2018.
He said law and order situation has improved in the country due to counter-terrorism measures and operation Zarb-e-Azb.
The premier said that the government has initiated a number of motorway and highway projects across the country, adding that Karachi-Lahore motorway is under construction and this will be extended from Lahore to Multan and Multan to Sukkur during the next two years.
The Prime Minister said 5.5 billion dollars are being spent for improving railway system in the country which would help increase speed of the train from the existing eighty kilomters an hour to 160 kilometers an hour.
He said: “Some people are talking about shutting down Islamabad the PML-N would continue to build roads and it is fate of these elements to measure these roads.”
