HYDERABAD, Pakistan: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Monday announced the establishment of a University, launch of his Healthcare Insurance Scheme, an International Airport and Metro Bus Service for Hyderabad City.
While addressing a jam-packed gathering of enthusiastic workers at a Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Convention in Hyderabad, the prime minister also announced Rs 500 million for the development and upgradation of the Hyderabad City.
The prime minister said that Hyderabad would be linked soon to the rest of the Country with a network of six-lane motorways, providing speedy access.
While announcing an initial grant of Rs 1,000 million for the University, the prime minister also directed the Pakistan Agricultural Storage and Services Corporation (PASSCO) to increase its purchase of wheat crop from Sindh from previous 80,000 tonnes to 100,000 tonnes.
Speaking on the occasion, the Federal Minister for Railways Khawaja Saad Rafique said that PML-N had fulfilled its promises made with the people of the Country during the 2013 general elections.
Saad Rafique said that the major challenges facing the Country had been overcome during the last four years. However, he regretted that the benefits had not been properly transferred to the people of Sindh due to the provincial government.
The minister said that now the federal government would fill the development gaps that the Sindh government could not complete in the province.
