PESHAWAR: Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Saturday said that the revolutionary changes do not take place overnight through making hollow claims but with efforts and practical approach.
Addressing an inaugural ceremony of National Incubation Centre here, the premier said the inauguration of the project has significant importance than previous ones as the centre would help supporting the youth in field of information technology.
“Projects like this are first step towards the digital journey as it will groom IT entrepreneurs,” he said.
PM Abbasi said it is responsibility of the government to provide broadband facility in every nook and cranny of the country. This, he said, will help the youth stand on their own feet and also steer the country out of the challenges of extremism.
Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said the country was lagging behind in the field of information technology and telecommunication when PML-N assumed power in 2013. Licenses of 3G and 4G were delayed for five years but after assuming power, we transparently issued licenses.
Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said it is the first government that not only conceptualized the projects but also completed them. He said we spread the network of motorways, added ten thousand megawatt of electricity to the system and signed gas agreements worth billions of dollars.
