MULTAN: While addressing a big public gathering here today, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif announced development projects of billions of rupees for the people of Layyah and adjoining areas.
He was in the city to perform groundbreaking of a bridge on Indus River which will be completed at a cost of seven billion rupees and link Layyah and Taunsa.
When completed, the bridge will also reduce the distance of 180 kilometers to just 24 kilometers enabling people to reach Indus Highway from Layyah in 30 minutes.
The premier also announced provision of gas to Chowk Azam, Karor Lal Esan and Fatehpur areas.
Referring to the load-shedding in the country, PM Nawaz said that the incumbent government believes in serving the people and is striving hard to curb load-shedding on the permanent basis, for which 10,000 megawatt of electricity will be added to the national grid by next year.
He said his government will continue its journey of development and progress, despite mudslinging of political opponents.
