Work on Gilgit-Skardu road hailed

GILGIT: Chief Minister Gilgit Baltistan, Hafiz Hafeezur Rehman said Thursday that his government was all set to fulfil yet another promise by starting work on gigantic Gilgit-Skardu road costing Rs 33 billion to provide better communication facilities to people of the area. He said one battalion of Engineering has reached to Gilgit to initiate construction work on Gilgit-Skardu road that after completion would change destiny of people, says a statement.

‘Those elements, who were talking that this mega project would never be materialized, shoulder now either resigned from politics or tender apology from people,’ he said. He said the propagandist elements, who were making hue and cry that work on Gilgit-Skardu road would never be started and that Chief Minister GB was not taking interest in this gigantic project, were now hiding faces from masses as propaganda of these elements was proved totally wrong. The Chief Minister said PMLN has strongly believed in practical works rather than hallow slogans and over 70percent promises made with electorates were fulfilled before starting of the third year of his government.
He said political opponents have completely failed to fulfill their promises despite remaining in power for five years both in GB and Federation. He said PMLN has created no problems for political opponents by allowing them to fulfill their promises and elections manifesto.—APP

  1. Excellent initiative by GB. Skardu road is in the worst possible condition & takes one 7-8 hours to cover that 170 km to KKH from Skardu. Even Astore road requires immediate attention. I hope that n other smaller roads such as the one going to Rama, will soon be noticed and people of those areas will have the full benefit of a political government.
