  1. “they were running according to timelines” … Amazing to hear this statement being made at such a high level government meeting and astonishingly that some one who belongs to Karachi simply accepting this statement on the face value. The only explanation could be that the time line which PTI govt has decided is not to complete the project in this term but to defer it till the next term (if they come in to power)…
