PM said that the highway was being built as part of the Sukkur and Hyderabad Public-Private Partnership which would cost Rs 307 billion to complete. He said that the federation will support public-private partnerships in other provinces of Pakistan.

He said that Nawaz Sharif had announced the construction of the Sukkur-Rohri Bridge and that he had proclaimed its completion.

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and his delegation were greeted by Chief Minister Sindh Murad Ali Shah in Sukkur. The foundation stone for the Hyderabad-Sukkur Motorway was then laid by the prime minister during the Rs3.07 trillion project’s groundbreaking event.

Chief Minister Sindh Murad Ali Shah, Federal Minister for Information Technology Aminul Haq and Federal Minister for Communication and Postal Services Asad Mahmood were also present at the eve.

Chief Minister Sindh Murad Ali Shah said that because the project had been put off for three and a half years, therefore, laying the cornerstone for it would be significant historically. He said that 25,000 jobs should be given to the local people to work on the project.

Murad Ali Shah also said that the Sukkur-Hyderabad national highway was in extremely poor condition after the floods. He also demanded that the Prime Minister should set aside money for its restoration. He added that they had no hope from the previous PTI government and therefore they did not make a demand.

Speaking of the flood victims in Sindh he stated that several locations still had water and numerous people were still receiving assistance. He said that the provincial cabinet had set up Rs50 billion for this initiative and they were optimistic that the federal government would assist.
