MIANWALI: Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Saturday said that democracy is vital for the progress and prosperity of the country.
Addressing the inaugural ceremony of a gas supply project in Mianwali, the prime minister said the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) will compete in the upcoming Senate elections against parties involved in horse-trading.
He said: “We will expose those who are doing dirty politics.”
“The results of General Elections 2013 are evident to everyone as the country is progressing owing to ongoing development projects undertaken by the PML-N government,” Abbasi added.
“The PML-N believes in the politics of decency and serving the masses,” said the prime minister.
He said that despite all challenges including political conspiracies, the present government delivered.
He said that “today gas is available to all the consumers, including the CNG users,” and added that new gas connections are also being given.
Abbasi said the motorway being constructed between Hassan Abdal and Dera Ismail Khan will greatly benefit the people of Mianwali. He said it will change the destiny of the people of the area.
Appearing optimistic for upcoming general elections, he vowed the ruling party will continue the ongoing progress and economic prosperity phase.
On the occasion, he said one should compare Punjab with Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) to comprehend the development projects undertaken by the ruling party.
The PM reiterated that Punjab under the leadership of Shehbaz Sharif has witnessed unmatched development.
Earlier, the premier inaugurated gas supply project worth Rs2.30 billion in Mianwali. The project will provide gas to the people of tehsil Esa Khel and its adjoining areas.
Over one hundred and eighty thousand people will benefit from it.
