ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Wednesday reiterated that Pakistan could only achieve progress and prosperity in a democratic system.
He said that the electorate would exercise their right to vote during the upcoming elections by choosing a representative government of their choice for the next five years.
“The electorate will take a good decision and their verdict will be accepted,” he added.
The prime minister was addressing the inaugural ceremony of Polytechnic Institute Maira Begwal.
He said that not only in the federal capital but also throughout the length and breadth of the country, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) had emerged as the single ruling party which had executed mega energy and infrastructure projects.
“There is a long list of such uplift projects completed during the last five years of PML-N government,” he added.
The prime minister expressed hope that the people in the area would massively support PML-N and its candidates in the upcoming general elections.
On the occasion, Minister for Capital Administration and Development Division (CAAD) Dr Tariq Fazal Chaudhry, MNA Farhana Qamar and Frontier Works Organization (FWO) Director General (DG) Lt Gen Muhammad Afzal were also present.
The prime minister lauded the efforts of the FWO and said that it would run the educational project whose idea had been floated back in 1985. He also recollected the events which led to the collection of donations by the then members of the parliament and the residents.
He also appreciated the people of the area for donating a huge chunk of land worth millions of rupees for the project.
The prime minister expressed his pleasure that the project, at last, saw the light of the day despite certain odds created in the past.
He said that the polytechnic institute would provide quality education and would enable the people to get jobs in the country and abroad as well.
