MANSEHRA: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif announced to decrease electricity prices and maintain rates of petroleum products.
He was addressing a rally after groundbreaking of Havelian-Thakot motorway. Prime Minister said the government has the agenda of country’s progress and not of sit-in protests.
Earlier, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Thursday performed groundbreaking of a multi-million rupees natural gas pipeline project in Mansehra for the fourth time over the last 26 years with zero work on ground.
The 12-inch diameter gas pipeline has to be laid from Abbottabad to Mansehra to supply gas to Pakhal, Oghi, Balakot and Shinkiari.
The government has allocated Rs700 million for the project, which was first announced by Nawaz Sharif during his first government in 1990. The same project was re-launched in 1997, when the PML-N formed the government for the second time.
In 2010, the PPP government announced work on the project for the third time.
