SADIQABAD: Referring to opponents’ excessive criticism, Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Saturday said Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) did not make hollow slogans for well-being of the society but rather undertook countrywide development schemes.
Addressing an inaugural ceremony of LNG project here, the premier said the upcoming electoral contest would prove which party served the masses best.
“Show a single project [that] you initiated,” he said without citing a name of any political opponent.
He said the ruling party would emerge victorious in the next general elections for the projects it launched across the country during its tenure.
Coming on inauguration of gas pumping station here, he said the government addressed chronic energy problems of the country keeping in view requirements of the next 15 years.
He said the country was under grip of energy crisis when the PML-N assumed power. “Gas-powered power and fertilizer plants were shut and gas was not available to CNG stations and the industries. We inherited these problems but simultaneously started projects to address the shortage of gas and power in the country,” PM Abbasi added.
“The power plants are operational and producing cheap electricity from the imported LNG,” he said, adding, the country is importing the cheapest LNG when compared with any other country.
Taking credit of constructing a vast network of motorways for the ruling party, he said PML-N does not believe in the politics of promises or mudslinging on others but in the politics of serving the masses.
