PTI devastated KP, defaced Peshawar: CM

LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-N President and Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif Tuesday said Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government had devastated Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (KP) province and defaced the city of Peshawar. “The promises made with the nation by Imran Niazi have proved false,” he said while telephonically addressing a public meeting in Battagram district of KP. In the beginning, Khan Sahib declared the Metro Bus of Lahore a ‘Jangla bus’ but later on his government in KP launched the same project in Peshawar. However, his government failed to complete it as the tenure of the government is going to end this month, he added. Shahbaz was scheduled to address the public meeting at Battagram, but he could not reach there due to bad weather. The PML-N leader said he was very fond of coming to Battagram to meet the people of the area and discuss their problems, which the PTI government failed to solve during its constitutional term.

The KP had been pushed back during the past five years as no new projects had not launched by the provincial government, he added.

“By the Grace of Almighty Allah, I will visit the city soon to meet all of you," he promised.

He said people living in KP province were proud citizens of the country.

He said Imran Khan Niazi had promised producing thousands of megawatts of electricity five years ago. He had claimed that electricity would be provided to other parts of the country also. However, electricity generation project of just 74-megawatt had been set up after passage of five years, he added.

On the other side, 80-megawatt electricity generation project, set up by the previous government, developed faults in 2016 and the PTI government failed to rectify it. Thus, the PTI government produced minus six megawatts of electricity, the CM said.

He said that the ‘Billion tree tsunami’ had also proved a false claim.

Imran Khan lied at every occasion and set records of falsehood, Shahbaz said.

"If Allah Almighty gives us an opportunity, we will make KP another Punjab and Peshawar will be developed like Lahore," he promised.

Shahbaz said development works would be carried out in Hazara, Battagram and other cities of KP. New educational institutions and hospitals would be set up and lakhs of people would be provided jobs and stipend would be given to the deserving students.
