ISLAMABAD: Hashoo Group Chairman Sadruddin Hashwani returned to the country after five years and announced to make huge investment in oil and gas sector and to open three new five-star hotels which will lead to revival of the economy and promotion of the investment in the country.

 

Three five stars hotels would be constructed in Multan, Hayatabad in Peshawar and Mirpur in Azad Kashmir.The hotel in Hayatabad will be second five star hotel and will be named after his mother — Zevar Inter-Continental Hotel.

 

While in Mirpur, the hotel would be constructed besides Mangla Lake through which one thousand job opportunities would e created. Work on these projects would start within this year. While in oil and gas sector, the Hashoo Group has completed the drilling of 60 wells and more drilling will be made in this sector to resolve the energy crisis.

 

Hashwani was so happy and pleased when he returned Pakistan with his family. “Pakistan is rich with natural resources. The oil and gas sector is highly risky and that was reason that most of Pakistan did not give attention on this sector,” he said while talking to The News/Jang.

 

Hashwani was of the opinion that the polices in the oil and gas sector were tough and complicated due to which many foreign investors did not move toward Pakistan and instead they prefer to move toward far-east and Africa. “The investors are now moving to Myanmar,” he said.

 

He said India has also deregulated the oil and gas sector while due to strict rules in Pakistan the investors have started to re-locate the investment to other places which is needed to be stopped. “Now our Hashoo Group has decided to continue serving Pakistan as the country has given us so much and I will bury in my beloved homeland,” he said.

 

Hashwani said he had returned into the country after five years and though he faced many problems, he did not lose courage and faced every problem. “It was my faith that all of us die one day. This is my home land which is deer to me than my life. The God has given this country to us and God will also take care of it,” he added.

 

He said those who talk about the disappointments should feel the blessings of freedom as freedom is priceless. “It is call of homeland to keep the country for the future generation,” he added.

 

Hashwani said the country is blessed with rich resources. “No one has taken his wealth into grave. Every one has to be buried into the soil and held accountable before the God so it was necessary to do something good for the country,” he added.

 

Chairman of Hashoo Group has welcomed the decision of appointment of Dr Abdul Malik has Balochistan chief minister saying that it is positive gesture of Prime Minister Mian Nawaz Sharif to give the chief ministership of Balochistan to Dr Abdul Malik. “All the parties should move ahead jointly to formulatethe strategy to resolve problems,” he said and added that Pakistan is his identity. “All of us have to work untidily for the next generation so that they should be provided hospitals and schools,” he said.

 

He said there is need to protect rights of people and remain united, which is basis of Islamic teachings. Hashwani said Nawaz Sharif is intelligent, visionary and intellectual politician while in Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif is working with commitment with his team.

 

He said he has now returned and will serve the country with all of my sincerity and dedication. “When I constructed the hotel in Gwadar then people were laughing but now the hotels in Gwadar and Muzzafarabad were successfully running. Now more new hotels will be constructed and investments will be made in oil and gas sector,” he said.Hashwani said, “We should pray that the God protect the country always and strengthen our faith.”
