KARACHI, Pakistan: Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif on Friday said the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) government’s focus on expansion of motorways network across the Country had realized the dream of a developed and prosperous Pakistan.
“Today, the people are witnessing the emergence of a new Pakistan with improved infrastructure and communication network, and we have given reality to this dream,” the Prime Minister said in his address at the inauguration of 75-km-long section of Karachi-Hyderabad Motorway.
The Prime Minister said motorways were a lifeline to the country’s economy and were significant in enhancing national unity by reducing the distances among people belonging to different parts of country.
He said his government was completely focusing on its agenda of development and progress, paying no heed to the negative politicking around.
“Building the nation is no way a child’s play and requires utmost dedication and hard work, which we are delivering,” he said.
Nawaz Sharif said, “The people of Pakistan can well distinguish the dedicated and selfless leaders from those who have wasted time of the nation by impeding development through protests.”
He said economy of a country depended a lot on comprehensive road network, however regretted that those who traveled in routine through chartered aircraft were most critical of construction of motorways and roads.
“Such people have no realization about the importance of roads for common people including farmers, workers and students who daily travel through roads for jobs or education,” he said.
The Prime Minister said he was grateful to Allah Almighty as the country had embarked upon a new journey towards progress and prosperity.
