ISLAMABAD, Dec 14 (APP):Federal Minister for Information Chaudhry Fawad Hussain Friday  said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf in its manifesto had promised to bring back looted national wealth from abroad  and there would be no compromise on that issue.

Addressing various public gatherings at Pinanwal, Pind Dadan Khan, the minister said that the people of Pakistan were deprived of clean drinking water, health and education facilities while Nawaz Sharif and Asif Zardari looted and
plundered the national wealth and built palaces for themselves in foreign countries.
He said that due to misgovernance of the past Jhelum and Pind Dadan Khan, like many other areas of the country , remained neglected in development schemes.  He said that the PTI government would launch uplift projects in the previously neglected areas to bring them at par with developed areas.
He announced that Prime Minster Imran Khan would be chief guest at ground breaking ceremony of Jalalpur canal project, which would irrigate lands of Jhelum distirct. The Jalalpur canal is Rs 9 billion project and will be completed in 4 years.
He said he had requested the irrigation department not to do brick lining of the canal so that the underground water of the area could become sweet. He said it  was a hundred year old project and the honor of its implementation
would go to PTI government.
He also announced that road from Lillah Inter change to Jheulm would be converted into dual carriageway to reduce travel time to only 30 minutes.
