PM inaugurates integrated gas processing facility in Hyderabad
HYDERABAD: Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Saturday inaugurated KDP-TAY Integrated Gas Processing Facility at Kunnar oil and gas field in Tando Jam, Hyderabad.
“The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) government has accomplished what successive government failed to deliver,” he said while addressing the inaugural ceremony.
Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said the credit went to the ruling government for concrete measures to utilize Thar Coal Site and Reko Diq gold and copper deposits besides exploiting hydropower potential of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Azad Kashmir.
He said despite challenges the government was completing its term. It had realized its targets and put Pakistan on road to progress, he added.
The premier said besides relief to different segments of society, tax burden has been halved by bringing down the maximum tax from 35 percent to just 15 percent.
Referring to the law and order issue in Karachi, he said the situation has now completely changed as compared to 2013 and foreign investors are now visiting Karachi frequently to explore the investment opportunities there.
Abbasi expressed his satisfaction that with consensus, all the provinces and the federal governments had recently signed the water policy.
Shedding light on some of the energy and infrastructure developments, he said the government allocated funds for the completion of Diamer Bhasha dam. About 1,700 kms motorway from Peshawar to Karachi was being completed and it was not far when the whole regions would be interconnected through it, he said.
“A total of 10,400MW power was added by his government in the last five years,” he said.
Prime Minister Shahid Abbasi called upon the critics of the PML-N government to compare its performance with all the previous governments in terms of number of mega development projects completed in the last five years.
He regretted that previous regimes did not pay heed to projects of national importance which hit snags causing losses of billions of rupees to the national kitty.
Addressing an inauguration ceremony of Charitable Dialysis Center and Shaheed Khalid bin Waleed Auditorium at Darul Sehat Hospital Karachi, the prime minister urged the private sector to come forward and play its role for provision of quality healthcare services to the poor people.
He said the government was making all-out efforts for the provision of facilities in the health sector with innovations.
He said public and private sectors should collectively provide healthcare services to the poor segments of society with their combined efforts.
Shahid Abbasi said the economic growth and prosperity of Karachi was linked with the development of rest of the country. No government could ignore Karachi and there was no politics involved in it, he said.
He said the government had announced tax incentives for the business class and investors, which were unprecedented in the whole world.
He called upon the investors in health sector to take maximum benefits from the incentives and serve the humanity.
