‘Revolutionary steps taken for national development’
Islamabad: Minister of State for Capital Administration and Development Division Dr Tariq Fazl Chaudhary on Saturday claimed that the government had taken revolutionary measures during the last few years for starting mega development projects in the country.
The minister, while speaking at an inauguration ceremony held here, said that development projects in the city were underway and the government would also construct Bara Kahu Pass at Muree road. The minister said that the Prime Minister had approved the project to facilitate the tourists visiting Murree, Galiyat and Azad Kashmir. He also said that the PM would soon inaugurate Poly Technical Institute at Meera Bhegwal which, he said, would help students in getting technical education.
The minister said that Simili Dam was providing water to the residents of Islamabad passing through Bara Kahu, adding that the government would make efforts to give the locals their share in the dam’s water.
He also said that government schools in the area were being upgraded under the Prime Minister Education Reforms Programme (PMERP). Targeting the opposition parties, Dr Tariq said that all parties should look into their houses instead of criticising Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), which, he said, did exemplary work in few years. “Opposition is depending on criticism only,” he said.
Dr Tariq said that it was ideology of PML-N and Nawaz Shirf to strengthen the country internally and externally and build its economy on strong grounds.
“Providing health and education facilities, bringing foreign investment, network of motorways and completion of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project are on the credit of the present government and Nawaz Sharif,” he said.–Staff Reporter
