PESHAWAR: Parliamentary leader of Awami National Party (ANP) in the Senate Ilyas Ahmad Bilour on Tuesday termed Peshawar Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Project a punishment for the dwellers of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa for voting the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) to power in the province.
In a statement issued here, the senator said the provincial government had launched BRT Project in Peshawar without making any plan for the smooth flow of the traffic.
“This ill-planning of KP government has created a serious traffic mess in the provincial metropolis, making life miserable for city dwellers,” the ANP leader added.
Ilyas Bilour said Imran Khan had not even bothered to visit the BRT to observe the hardships faced by people due to sever traffic jams.
The senator believed that Chief Minister Pervez Khattak was fooling the masses by making wrong claims of completing the project within six months. He rejected the claim of government that work on this important project is being carried out in three shifts.
The ANP senator said all roads from entry point of Peshawar to Hayatabad had been destroyed and machinery is visible only on a few points.
The ANP senator claimed that the BRT Project would not be completed in six months and it would take around two and a half years.
The PTI leadership is hoodwinking masses in the name of development by launching unplanned projects, causing inconvenience to people, he said.
The ANP leader requested the chief justice of the Peshawar High Court (PHC) to take suo moto notice of the project and save dwellers of Peshawar from facing sever traffic jams which was hampering daily life in the provincial metropolis.
