Punjab Minister for Minerals Chaudhry Sher Ali has said that the Punjab government under the dynamic leadership of Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif is committed to providing better transportation and communication facilities to people, especially in rural and remote areas.

He said this while addressing a gathering after the ground breaking ceremony of 22-km-long Gharibwal-Naka-Toot Road. MNA Malik Aetbar Khan, former MPA Malik Azam Gheba, Attock DCO Chaudhry Habibullah, Pindigheb AC Munawar Langrial, TMO Ulfat Hussain and notables of the area were also present on the occasion.

The provincial minister said that the road which would cost Rs142 million would be completed within the stipulated period, adding that on completion thousands of people of the area would have better transportation facilities. He said that across the Punjab 2,000-km-long roads in remote areas would be widened and carpeted. He said that better roads could guarantee development, adding that when PML-N took over the reign the country was faced with many challenges but now the government, through its sagacious police was tackling these challenges in a befitting manner.

Chaudhry Sher Ali said that the big challenge was the shortage of electricity and to handle this issue different power generating projects were being completed on war footings.
