BAGH, Jun 17 (APP): Minister for Information, Broadcasting and
National Heritage Senator Pervaiz Rashid Friday said Prime Minister
Muhammad Nawaz Sharif was bringing investment worth $ 46 billion
under the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project while
internal and external enemies were creating obstacles.
He was speaking at a ceremony here to welcome leaders and workers of different political parties who joined Pakistan Muslim League(N).
The minister said Imran Khan and Tahirul Qadri were starting politics of sit-ins while following agenda of enemies of Pakistan.
He asked people to foil the politics of sit-ins and agitation.
The minister said Rs 50 billion have been allocated for the roads of Azad Kashmir.
“We will spend this amount in five years and Rs 10 billion will be spent every year.”
He said AJK is a mountainous area and it is difficult to take patients to hospitals in a difficult terrain.
Nawaz Sharif has announced launching of a helicopter ambulance
service for the patients, he added.
The minister said hospitals will be built in every tehsil besides projects of electricity, roads, schools, colleges and universities would be undertaken in AJK.
Manifesto of Pakistan Muslim League-N revolved around welfare
of people, he added.
He said Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had regained health because of prayers of the people.
During every tenure of Nawaz Sharif, there were people who
created hurdles in his way, he added.
He said Mushtaq Minhas was a sincere person and had worked
tirelessly for the welfare of journalists.
Earlier speaking to PML-N workers in Dhirkot, he said Pakistan
Muslim League-N would implement its election manifesto in letter
and spirit to make Azad Kashmir a paradise.
The minister said Mirpur and Muzaffarabad would be linked through an expressway.
In the past, Muslim Conference and Peoples Party remained in power but their leadership could not bring change in the lives of people of AJK, he added.
He said PML-N always took steps for raising standard of living of people.
PML-N government made it easy for people to get telephone connections and build motorways for safe travel, Pervaiz added.
