Taxila: According to Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Climate Change Malik Amin Aslam, who spoke at public forums in Hazro and Hassanabdal on Monday, another interchange would be built on the Islamabad-Peshawar highway (M-1) soon to help farmers provide agricultural products to markets more quickly.
The interchange would be built near the village of Haroon, making it easier for residents of the area, as well as farmers — particularly vegetable growers — to carry their produce to market.
The cancellation of the New Zealand cricket team’s tour of Pakistan, according to the PM’s assistant, was due to “hidden hands.” “Under Prime Minister Imran Khan’s leadership, Pakistan’s image in the eyes of the world has significantly improved, particularly as a result of wise decisions on the Afghan issue,” he said, adding that the electronic voting machine (EVM) is a permanent technological solution for combating the threat of electoral rigging and manoeuvring in elections.
He stated that all stakeholders should use this machine as a transparency instrument to strengthen democracy, adding that corrupt groups do not want this, which is why bad propaganda is spread against it.
He added that a share of the hydel profit from the Ghazi Barotha project will now be given to Attock district, and gas will be supplied to 35 villages of NA-56 at a cost of Rs. 60 million in various towns and villages of NA-55, including Attock, Hazro, and Hasanabdal, which will certainly control water-borne diseases.
