BANNU: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said he disappointed to visit Khyber Pakhtunkhwa as he could not see ‘new Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’ claimed by PTI-led provincial government.
Addressing a public rally, he announced a development package worth Rs 200 million for different areas of KPK including Bannu. He also announced construction of an international airport in Bannu and a university in Lakki Marwat.
The PM Nawaz once again said that he would resign if corruption worth a penny was proven against him. He said that the federal government would curb energy crisis until 2018.
Addressing the gathering, Fazl said that PML-N would create a ‘new Bannu’ as the ruling party built several roads and highways during its multiple tenures in the government.
The prime minister laid foundation stone of a gas project that will ensure supply to five union councils. The project will complete in a year costing around Rs 259 million.
Governor Iqbal Zaffar Jhagra, PM’s Special Assistant Asif Kirmani, Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-F chief Fazlur Rehman, former governor Sardar Mehtab Abbasi and former chief ministers Pir Sabir Shah and Muhammad Akram Durrani accompanied the prime minister during his visit.
