PESHAWAR, July 24 (APP): Advisor to the Prime Minister
Engr Amir Muqam Monday said that those who had raised the so-called
slogan of bringing `change’ were now taking their last breath and
would be voted out by the people of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in the general election 2018.
The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), he said, would bring
‘real change’ in the province as it could not be brought by the
“conspirators”, he added.
Amir Muqam, who is also PML-N Khyber Pakhtunkhwa president,
was addressing a public gathering after inaugurating a Rs 1,200
million mega Sui gas project at PK-27 constituency in Mardan
National Assembly Deputy Speaker Murtaza Javed Abassi, Federal
Minister for Oil and Gas Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and Member of the
National Assembly Javed Mohmand were also present on the occasion.
Amir Muqam said today’s mammoth public meeting was in fact
a `people’s JIT (joint investigation team)’ against the Pakistan
Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI), which would be voted out as the people
would cast votes in favour of the PML-N.
The advisor apprised the participants of the meeting that
the federal government had initiated many gas connection
projects at the cost of Rs 26 billion in Khyber Pakhtunkwa while
the PTI’s provincial government had neither spent nor paid a
single penny under the head of gas supply.
The federal government, he said, had also released additional
funds of Rs 12 billion to the KP government, which it had failed to
utilize for the betterment of masses.
Amir Muqam said Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had also approved
supply of gas to PK-28 and he would soon inaugurate the project
in that regard.
He thanked the prime minister and the federal minister for
oil and gas for approving gas supply projects for the Mardan district.
The PML-N leader criticized PTI chief Imran Khan for challenging
the mandate of 200 million people of Pakistan given to the PML-N.
The PTI leadership, he said, had no proof of any financial irregularity committed by the PML-N leadership.
“Since Nawaz Sharif is the second name of development, so Imran Khan’s dream of becoming prime minister will never realize,” he remarked.
Amir Muqam alleged that like his leader, KP Chief Minister Pervez
Khattak was apt in hatching conspiracies. But they could not compete
with those who were taking practical steps for the prosperity of
people and development of the country, he added.
He said the people had now become aware of the reality of
PTI’s slogans and could no more be hoodwinked in the name of
He said the PML-N leadership had fulfilled its promises made
to MNA Jamshed Mohmand at time of his joining the party. The
promises included a separate Wapda division for Thakt Bhai,
establishment of a sub-division at Lund Khawar, installation of
a 40 MVA transformer and setting up a new grid station at
Speaking on the occasion, Federal Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi
said the prime minister had given full authority to Amir Muqam for
launching development schemes in the KP.
The federal government, he said, was providing gas facility
to some 2.2 million homes in the province.
The mega China Pakistan Economic Corridor project, he said,
would benefit the KP and Baluchistan provinces the most.
