DG KHAN (APP) - Federal Minister for Power Division Sardar Awais Ahmad Khan Leghari said that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) government was making sincere efforts to steer the country out of crises.

He said this while speaking to journalists on Saturday during the inauguration of an uplift project.

The minister stated that there was zero tolerance policy towards electricity theft.

He affirmed the government’s commitment to provide maximum relief to the public. He stated that the dualization of Indus Highway from Dera Ismail Khan to Kashmore was his top priority for uplift of the region. He added that the project would be completed by 2027.

He stressed that PML-N’s focus remained on services towards masses rather than criticism.

He stated that road construction for public welfare had always been a PML-N priority. Work on dualization of N-55 Indus Highway will commence in September this year and is expected to be completed by October 2027.

This project will stretch from Dera Ismail Khan through Dera Ghazi Khan and Rajanpur to Kashmore, including over 100 bypasses to facilitate smooth travel for residents.

Leghari stressed that the construction of the dual carriageway would boost the economy and provide numerous employment opportunities for the local population.

He also mentioned China’s significant investment in the region, with ongoing surveys in Dera Ghazi Khan to transfer industry, which will open new avenues for development for educated youth, labourers, and other sectors.
