Peshawar—The Prime Minister Mian Nawaz Sharif Friday kept rapping the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) leadership saying they are in the habit of coming on the roads and doing nothing for the masses.
“Those who got votes in 2013 election have mercilessly failed to bring any change in Swat but I promise that the PML-N would make new Pakistan and a New Swat”. The Pakistan Muslim League (PML) N supremo told a rally after inaugurating newly constructed Nawaz Sharif Kidney hospital at Mingora Swat on Friday afternoon.
Prime Minister lamented that he did not see any change in Mingora as schools, hospitals and roads continued to be in shambles. Without naming the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf leadership Nawaz said some people wanted to come on roads over every issue adding he was constructing the roads for them so that they may keep demonstrating if they feel happy over that.
“They have not taken any solid steps for the development of Khyber Pukhtunkhwa province and only resorting to protests and Dhernas but we believe in serving the people and Nawaz Sharif Kidney Hospital in Mingora is a gift to the people of Khyber Pukhtunkhwa (KP) from the people of Punjab”. The Prime Minister said adding PTI had claimed to build a new Pakistan, but it has failed in it. He however, reprimanded the people of Swat for what he said voting for the people other the PML in the 2013 general elections. “The people of Swat made a mistake in 2013 elections by voting for others”. Nawaz said while referring to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf that is ruling the KP province.
Nawaz said the country has been put on the path of rapid development and economy has been strengthened and the foreign exchange reserves have reached the ever high level. He claimed the load-shedding will be overcome by the year 2018. He said that the change introduced under his leadership can be witnessed in Punjab and Balochistan and similar change will be introduced in KP.
Prime Minister maintained that the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) shall be connected with rest of the region through Basham, adding that this will play an important role in uplifting the entire region.
