Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan will pay a day-long visit to Peshawar where he will be inaugurating development projects.

According to the details, According to Special Assistant to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister on Information Kamran Bangash, the PM would inaugurate the Hayatabad Sports Complex uplift project, under which a cricket ground of International Cricket Council’s standard would be constructed.

He would also hold a meeting with the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Cabinet, and distribute cheques among the youth under the Kamyab Jawan Programme.

Imran Khan would also openwork on the Peshawar Institute of Cardiology (PIC) and the highrise flats scheme of the Provincial Housing Authority.

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Health Minister Taimur Saleem Jhagra said that “PIC is ready and Prime Minister Imran Khan is coming to Peshawar today to inaugurate it.”

It may be recalled that Imran Khan last visited Peshawar to inaugurate the long-awaited Peshawar Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project.

Addressing the inaugural ceremony, the premier said that this was “the best metro bus project in the country”.

This will have an impact in Peshawar because the city has one main artery that stretches from GT Road to Hayatabad, which chokes when under pressure, resulting in people sitting in traffic for hours which causes pollution and petrol wastage, he said.

He maintained that the main artery was 27 kilometres long while the feeder routes were 60km. “This means that all of city will be connected,” he said, adding that it was a modern transport system covering Peshawar in its entirety.

Imran Khan also admitted to having “reservations” about the project. “I want to say I had reservations about the project.”

“Today, I want to pay tribute to Pervez Khattak because he always said that you will realize the importance of this project once it is completed. So all I want to say is that Pervez Khattak was right and we turned out to be wrong.”
