LAHORE: Railways Minister Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed said on Friday that a 1,872-kilometre-long new rail track will be laid out under the Main Line-1 (ML-1) project, adding that the project will generate some 150,000 job opportunities.
Addressing a ceremony, the minister said that the incumbent government will root corruption out of the country under the leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan. He noted that the international community was appreciating the timely measures taken by the government to combat coronavirus.
He said that PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz has caused a lot of damage to her father’s politics, and she was the one who removed him from power. He said the APC speech delivered by Nawaz Sharif actually carried Modi and Sajjan Jindal’s words.
Slamming the opposition for seeking under-the-table deals, he said that the sky will fall if he decides to leak secret telephone data.
