Governing Pakistan no easy task, says PM Abbasi in Sialkot

SIALKOT: Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi praised the business community of Sialkot on Monday while addressing an event at the Sialkot International Airport.
Speaking at the event, the PM remarked that development work across the country is reflective of the vision of Nawaz Sharif, the president of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz.
Reiterating his earlier claims, he said that when PML-N came into power conditions in Pakistan were dire. “We even completed the Nandipur project which started in 2006.”
However, he remarked that PML-N continues to be criticised despite completing projects and working for the benefit of the people.
The ruling PML-N government completed projects for the generation of 10,000 Megawatts power, he said, adding “Not only did we resolve electricity crises, we are also working for electricity generation for the coming 15 years.”
The PM added, “attempts were even made to spread disorder in the last four years but PML-N continues to work for the people.”
Earlier, the premier inaugurated the international terminal of the airport.
Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal and Aviation Adviser Sardar Mehtab Abbasi were present alongside the premier.
Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif, who hails from Sialkot, received the prime minister on his arrival.
The premier was also briefed by the National Highway Authority on the Lahore-Sialkot Motorway.
The prime minister later met members of the Sialkot Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
