Gulab Devi Underpass, Flyover To Be Completed Before Deadline, Says Special Assistant To CM Hasaan Khawar
LAHORE – Special Assistant to Chief Minister (SACM) and Punjab government’s spokesman Hasaan Khawar Tuesday said that Gulab Devi Underpass Project a part of Usman Buzdar’s Lahore Package was proof of the PTI’s commitment to excellence as far as urban infrastructural development was concerned.
Briefing the media on the project, he said that completion of the project would not only minimize traffic congestion but also facilitate timely access of patients to the hospital. Hasaan Khawar said that the environment-friendly signal-free corridor would accommodate more than 1.5 million vehicles traveling to Kasur on a daily basis, adding that it would also save Rs50 million annually in terms of fuel consumption.
The CM further said that the project, estimated at Rs1.75 billion, would be completed two months shy of the actual deadline, and it would save Rs12 million in construction cost. He said that under the Lahore Package, four flyovers and three underpasses would be given to the citizens by Chief Minister Usman Bazdar. “On the other hand, an emergency hospital and trauma center will also be built near Arfa Karim Tower, PC-1 of which has been passed.” Hasaan Khawar said that the plan to build nine underground rainwater storage dams in Lahore would also be a gift for the people of Lahore.
Answering various questions of the journalists, Hassan Khawar said that the PML-N was challenging the law by boldly confessing its crimes through audios and videos. “Blaming judges and not responding to the alleged crimes in court are living examples of their boldness,” he said.
Responding to a question, he said that the PTI believed in a consultative and democratic process and was working for hand in glove with the allies. “The conspiracy-mongering N-League and company are polluting the parliamentary system,” he said, adding that those elements considered national politics a game of chess. Hasaan Khawar further said that the 90s methods of ‘honoring’ the vote with notes would no longer work. “Now political patients will not be allowed to leave the country, and they will be treated inside the country at the government’s expense,” he added.
