SIBBI, Sep 1 (APP): Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif
Thursday said the prosperity in Balochistan was the ultimate
destination though anti-state elements were green-eyed over the ongoing development process in the province.
“The prosperity of Balochistan is our destination. The
course is coarse. Though many others had also claimed of
Balochistan’s development in the past but never thought to
pave way to reach this destination,” he said addressing a
gathering after inaugurating a 174-kilometer road connecting
Sibbi with Kohlu.
Executed by the National Logistics Cell (NLC), the road
is the shortest link between Balochistan and Punjab provinces.
After its completion, the distance between Sibbi and Kohlu has been reduced from 600 to just 174 kilometers.
The prime minister was accompanied by Balochistan
Governor Muhammad Khan Achakzai, Chief Minister Sanaullah Zahri, Minister for Port and Shipping Mir Hasil Bazenjo and Adviser to the PM on National Security Lt Gen (Retd) Nasser Khan Janjua.
The work on the project was halted in 2006 owing to law
and order situation. However, it was revived after the
government signed a contract with NLC in 2014 that completed the project within one and a half year.
