Government of PakistanPM Shahbaz Sharif performs groundbreaking of Baab-e-Pakistan project

LAHORE, Pakistan: Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif on Saturday laid the foundation stone of Baab-e-Pakistan project as well as the extension and widening project of Walton Road in Lahore.

While addressing the Ceremony, the prime minister said that the Baab-e-Pakistan project reminds us of the great sacrifices rendered by Muslims during migration from India to Pakistan after partition.

The prime minister said that thousands of migrants stayed at Walton Migrants Camp after the partition where local people welcomed them with open hearts and arms. He said that Quaid e Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah had also visited this Camp during 1948.

Shahbaz Sharif said that this is his eighth visit to the site of the Baab-e-Pakistan project in the last 25 years. He regretted that Rs 1.1 billion had been spent from the national exchequer on this project but was no visible progress on the ground.

The prime minister said that the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) should make people accountable who are responsible for delaying this important project for so long. He said that the project will be completed without any further funds from the government and include the Central Business District to generate its own income.

In his address, the Railways Minister Khawaja Saad Rafique said that the Bab-e-Pakistan project was properly launched in 2010; however, no serious work could be done so far.

Saad Rafique appreciated the relevant departments and institutions for cooperation in the renewal of work on the project of historical importance.
