On the development front, the PTI government managed to speed up many infrastructural projects. For example, 31 km long phase 1 of the Khushab-Sargodha road dualization project has been completed. Similarly, the PTI government promised a mass transit system for Karachi and it delivered. Earlier, Prime Minister Imran Khan officially launched the Green Line Bus in Karachi.
Moreover, in a bid to efficiently deal with the looming water crisis, PM Khan’s government will build 10 dams in 10 years.
“We have decided to construct 10 dams within 10 years including Dasu and Bhasha dams. We may face water shortage in the future and would be unable to cope with the needs of people and farmers unless we have storage,” the prime minister said.
“First time in Pakistan there is a planning for long-term, instead of short-term. We’re building 10 Dams in 10 years, we’ve made progress in fight against climate change”- PM @ImranKhanPTI #PakistanMovingForward
