Saturday, November 29, 2014 – Peshawar—The construc-tion of Hazara motorway would change destiny of people of Khyber Pakthunkhwa and Hazara division as it would create jobs opportunities for hundreds of thousands of people and skilled manpower besides giving massive boost to economic, trade and con-struction sectors in the coun-try, said Member Provincial Assembly, Wajiuzzman Khan on Friday.
“Construction of Hazara Motorway was our long-standing demand that is finally fulfilled by PML-N Government and its founda-tion stone laying ceremony would be inaugurated on Sat-urday,” he told APP. The Mo-torway would usher in eco-nomic revolution in the region, he added.
He said this gigantic pro-ject would have been inaugu-rated on August 14 last but was deferred due to agitation politics of Pakistan Tahrik e Insaf and Pakistan Awami Tahrik. This is very important link road project connecting Pakistan with China as part of economic corridor. Trade and business activities between Pakistan and China would further jacked up upon completion of Hazara Motorway.
The Motorway Project that is likely to be inaugurated by Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Sat-urday showed his Govt. strong commitment towards eco-nomic prosperity and devel-opment of Khyber Pakthunk-hwa besides bringing signifi-cant improvement in the socio-economic condition of people of KP.
