Lahore: According to news reports, the PML-N claims that the Ravi Riverfront Urban Development Project will suffer the same fate as the Rawalpindi Ring Road due to the Buzdar government’s “inefficiency and corruption.”
Azma Bokhari, the Punjab information secretary for the PML-N said that the destiny of the Ravi Riverfront Urban Development Project will be similar to that of the Rawalpindi Ring Road, where billions of rupees were misappropriated due to the PTI government’s “inefficiency and corruption.”
The PTI government is promoting the project as a cure for Lahore’s problems with urban sprawl, housing, water, and pollution.
In the Rawalpindi Ring Road fraud, Ms. Bokhari and other PML-N politicians have urged punishment against federal ministers Ghulam Sarwar and Sheikh Rashid, as well as former special assistant to the prime minister Zulfi Bokhari.
One of the key suspects in this scam, former commissioner Rawalpindi retired Capt Mahmood, is in jail, but no action has been taken against Ghulam Sarwar, Sheikh Rashid, and Zulfi Bokhari, according to the PML-N deputy secretary-general.
The PML-N further accused the Punjab Anti-Corruption Establishment (ACE) of providing two ministers and a former special assistant a “clean chit,” effectively making government officials scapegoats.
