SADIQABAD - The incumbent government has spared no effort for bringing an end to the woes being faced by the masses, said Federal Minister for Industries and Production Sardar Arshad Khan Leghari.

Laying the foundation stone of 24km-long Bhong to Sadiqabad city gas pipeline, he said that the project would help overcome gas shortage.

This stands testimony to the government’s vow which, he claimed, has been striving for the uplift of the masses. He further claimed that residents of NA-197 constituency are being provided all the basic facilities of life. The government would fulfil the promises it made with the masses, he added. The masses would honour the PML-N with their trust in the next polls, he expressed his optimism.
