Ex-minister claims to have Sheikhbadin approach road approved


Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) lawmaker and former provincial minister Dr Hisham Inamullah Khan said that he would inaugurate the Sheikhbadin approach road as it was approved due to his efforts.
Addressing a press conference at the Ghaznikhel Rest House on Thursday, Dr Hisham Inamullah Khan flanked by former federal minister Salim Saifullah Khan and Faisal Inamullah Khan said that PTI was his first political party and had no differences with the party leadership but some elements had been creating problems due to their personal ends.
He said that PTI MNA Ali Amin Gandapur was heard of coming to inaugurate the road but it would be unethical to do so. “One should not do something to earn cheap popularity and that’s what Gandapur is going to do which is not acceptable to the people of Lakki Marwat”, he maintained.
He said that he would bring it into the notice of the district administration to thwart any eventuality on the day of inauguration.
He said that he got development schemes worth Rs 13 billion approved for the underdeveloped district during his ministership. He said that work on the Sheikhbadin approach road at the cost of Rs 3b had been launched, adding that one road 14km from Lakki side while another of 16 kilometers from Dera Ismail Khan were being constructed.
Dr Hisham said that cold war between him and federal minister Ali Amin Gandapur over the reasons best known to the Gandapur. He said that some elements inside the party had been hatching conspiracies against him, adding, he would clear everything to the party chief if ever he met him.
He said that misconduct and ill-treatment on the part of Ali Amin Gandapur had been causing tremendous loss to the party cause as his terms with some other party colleagues including provincial minister for Transport Shah Muhammad Wazir, Ihtesham Khan, Aghaz Gandapur and MNA Yaqoob Shah had also been worsened.
Meanwhile, former Senator and federal minister Salim Saifullah Khan urged the Marwat nation to recognize the leaders serving them.
He turned down the propaganda that Hisham had tussle with Saifullah brothers.
He called upon the urged Opposition leaders to stop leg pulling of the government and let the government complete the tenure.
He said that his family has been living for decades over Sheikhbadin and Dr Hisham had a right to inaugurate the road project.
He advised Ali Amin Gandapur to stop being childish and be a mature politician to serve his constituency people.
