MANSEHRA, Pakistan: Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif on Thursday vowed not to let anyone sabotage the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) government’s agenda of people’s development, and warned his political opponents of the masses’ strong reaction.
“I want to tell the leg pullers that if they will create hurdles in the way of Pakistan’s development, the masses will throw them out,” he said while addressing a large public gathering in Dhudhial, after performing the ground-breaking of Havelian-Thakot section of the Hazara Motorway.
The Prime Minister asked his political opponents to fully ponder over before taking any steps, as the masses were not ready to tolerate any hurdle in the way of development.
“We will not let you create any hurdles in the way of Pakistan’s development, and will not let you sabotage the agenda of people’s development,” he added.
Nawaz Sharif said the PML-N government would continue its journey of people’s progress and prosperity while the people will themselves tackle the conspirators.
The Prime Minister referred to the ground-breaking of Havelian-Thakot section of Hazara Motorway and said he had embarked on the journey of people’s progress and prosperity and was not out for public meetings and rallies.
“Ours is the agenda of development across Pakistan, prosperity and betterment of masses, and elimination of unemployment, and not that of `Dharnas’.”
The Prime Minister said the government had earlier started work on the construction of Burhan-Havelian section of Hazara Motorway and now in the second phase, work on the Motorway from Havelian to Shinkiari was being started.
He said this motorway was not less in quality in any manner when compared with Lahore-Islamabad-Peshawar Motorway, as it was also a six-lane motorway project.
The Prime Minister said due to construction this Motorway project, the travel time from Burhan to Shinkiari will reduce from five hours to less than one and half hours and will benefit the people of this area a lot.
He said this Motorway will connect the people of this area with the whole of Pakistan, upto Karachi through network of roads and motorways, adding, it was a message of peace, progress and prosperity for the people of this area.
