“Just as we have successfully curbed terrorism in the city, we will control crime,” He added.

The provincial chief minister also clarified Pakistan People’s Party’s (PPP) position on the construction of Diamer-Bhasha dam that the party had proposed the dam and was not opposing it.

“We are not opposing the construction of the Diamer-Bhasha Dam, we just say they are facing technical issues,” he said without delving into details regarding the technical issues.

Answering questions pertaining to the Baldia factory fire case, he said that there is still development taking place in the case.
