MULTAN, Pakistan: Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Saturday inaugurated the Multan-Shujabad Section of Sukkur-Multan Motorway (M-5), which would facilitate fast and easy communication between Multan and Shujabad.
While addressing the Inaugural Ceremony, the prime minister said the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) government over the last five years had completed projects in every nook and corner of the Country worth billions of rupees. He said the PML-N government had completed many projects despite tough times.
“Our government completed many projects that were on hold since many decades,” he said.
The prime minister said the tough period was the load shedding during Ramadan. He said they were trying to reduce load shedding during the Ramadan especially Iftar and Sehri times.
Khaqan Abbasi said no new electricity projects were initiated under Musharraf and Zardari era. He said PML-N had produced more than 10,000 megawatt electricity in its current era.
“We have fulfilled our all promises,” he said adding the World recognized the work of the PML-N government.
The prime minister said the current short fall of electricity occurred due to shortage of water because over 2500 electricity was produced from the water.
Work on the Sukkur-Multan Motorway was started in 2016 and is scheduled to complete by 2019. It is a 6-lane access controlled facility, taking off from Sukkur and terminating at Multan, after passing through several major cities including Ghotki, Rahim Yar Khan, Sadiqabad and Bahawalpur.
