Govt tackled three main challenges: PM
ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif says the government has tackled all three major challenges of terrorism, economic revival and energy crisis.
Addressing inaugural ceremony of Greater Iqbal Park in Lahore, he claimed electricity load-shedding will be overcome within tenure of the present government. “It will boost country’s industry, agriculture, exports, stock market, foreign exchange reserves and ultimately create ample employment opportunities.”
He said as immense development activities were going in Balochistan, “the miscreants are unable to find any rationale to disrupt peace in the province.”
Referring to recent inauguration of Sorab Hoshab Road, the prime minister said with the construction of new roads, the Quetta Gwadar travel distance has been reduced from forty-eight to eight hours.
Besides road network, both the federal and Punjab governments, he said, are striving to build hospitals even in small towns.
