KOHAT: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, addressing a public rally in Kohat on Friday, said the opposition is afraid of seeing Pakistan on the path to progress because it would render their politics irrelevant.

Alluding to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), the Prime Minister said Pakistan is headed to become a developed country which has made the opposition feel insecure about 2018 elections.

Development plans

Vowing to bring change to the city and the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, the Prime Minister announced construction of a new hospital in Kohat and a women’s campus in Kohat University. He added that the government is starting a rail car service from Rawalpindi to Kohat and will soon connect Kohat to the Motorway.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, who inaugurated gas supply projects for the union councils in Kohat on the occasion, said that the government is spending Rs. 3.9 billion on providing gas to the city. He also reiterated his promise to end loadshedding across the country by 2018.

Elaborating on the gas projects, the Prime Minister said that the projects would supply gas to Khushal Garh, Chorlaki, Shahpur, Sherkot, Nusrat khel, Ali Zai and other districts in the city.


Taking aim at PTI’s rhetoric for ‘change’ the Prime Minister remarked that had there been development in the KPK province, there wouldn’t be such a huge crowd at this rally.

“We will bring change to this province. People know that no work has been done in KPK in the past three years,” the Prime Minister said, adding that PML-N would win the 2018 elections and would also be elected to govern KPK in 2018.

About the security situation in the country, the Prime Minister said the government is doing its best to combat terrorism and improve the security countrywide.

He also congratulated senator Abbas Khan Afridi on joining PML-N.
