This was stated by PML-N leader and former MNA Hanif Abbasi in an interview with APP on Thursday.
He said the government was aiming at fabricating a network of roads across the country. The PML-N government he said was aimimg for a glorious vision for Pakistan’s future, a vision of prosperous and democratic society, a responsible government for an enlightened society based on Islamic values of justice and equity.
“We are struggling to find a stable political order, which would guide us towards the lofty ideals of our founding fathers, he added.”
He said that government believed in solid working rather than dwell on what might have been accomplished, it is time to look forward to what can be, and will be accomplished with proper resolve, sound policies, and good governance of PML-N government.
Today, to pull the country and the people out of despair and despondency, we need that winning combination, the spirit of 1947, he added.

To a question Abbasi said that Metro Bus Project was delayed due to rainy,foggy, cold weather and on going situation which resulted in the country due to protests and sit ins and this project had to be completed by January 30.
Hanif said the cost of the project has not increased and we will try to save money from the allocated funds of Rs. 44 billion he added. He said we have made eleven roads signal free through this project.
