Nawaz Sharif lavishes Swat with development projects


MINGORA, SWAT: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif arrived here as part of his public campaign and  inaugurated a kidney hospital.


He said that the hospital was built on international standards and was a gift from the people of Punjab to Khyber Pakhtunkwa. He was accompanied by local PML-N leader Amir Maqaam.

Sharif said that change would have arrived in the province after the general election 2013 if the people were not distracted by the Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI). He lamented at the state of affairs and poor infrastructure in the area and said no change had come here.

The PML-N wants to bring change to the area just like it had brought to Punjab and Balochistan. Sharif took a jibe at the PTI and said while there were constructing roads in the region, the PTI would be taking to the streets built by them.

He announced that a women university and a technical training institute for youth would be established in Saidu Sharif. He also announced to provide funds worth 200 million rupees to the district union council.
