HYDERABAD: Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi Saturday called upon the critics of Pakistan Muslim League-N government to compare its performance with all the previous governments in terms of number of mega development projects completed in the last five years.
He said despite all hollow allegations levelled by certain quarters, the PML-N government would go for completion of all uplift projects, aimed at progress and prosperity of the country. The prime minister was addressing a gathering after inaugurating KPD-TAY Integrated Gas Processing Facility at Tando Jam.
Governor Sindh Muhammad Zubair, Senators Rahila Magsi, Taj Afridi, high authorities and a large number of people were present on the occasion. The prime minister regretted that previous regimes did not pay heed to projects of national importance which hit snags causing losses of billions of rupees to the national kitty and cited the KPD-TAY Integrated Gas Processing Facility as one among them.
He said “I challenge all who spoke against the PML-N government to hold open debate with us on any issue including power, infrastructure and energy and the projects completed by the past governments.” The prime minister also underscored the importance of continuity in the democratic process and said the PML-N government was going to complete its term and would add to strength to the system.
The government had added to the economic stability and presented the sixth public-friendly budget, he said, adding that was the difference between PML-N and other parties. The prime minister in response to criticism by the political opponents said the public had given mandate to his government to work till last day in the office.
The parliament had to approve the budget and the next government could alter it, he said and declared that the PML-N would form the next government as well. He also challenged that the budget contained such public friendly measures and the upcoming government would find it difficult to even change a single word in it. NNI
