LAHORE: Leader of Pakistan Muslim League-Q and former chief minister Punjab Chaudhry Pervez Elahi has alleged that inappropriate attitude and lack of interest on part of the Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif forced the foreign investors to leave.
In a statement issued here, Pervez Elahi said during his government agreements were made for billions of mega projects including that of Sheikh Mubarak Centre.
He said he worked day and night to plan these projects and convinced the investors. “But all these projects were consumed by the flawed policies of the incumbent Punjab government and its retaliatory attitude,” he added.
Pervez Elahi pointed out that Sheikh Mubarak Al-Nahiyan Company has scrapped the project of building tallest and biggest trade and residential complex in Lahore. The tower would have been visible from across the border in India, he said.
