Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif has performed a groundbreaking of the Sukkur-Hyderabad section of the M6 motorway. The 306-kilometer project is a section of the M6 Motorway. The PM said the project would be completed in two and a half years. The estimated cost of 307 billion was announced in April 2021 by the then PM Imran Khan who termed the project as part of a “historic development package” for Sindh.
Speaking on the occasion the incumbent PM Shahbaz Sharif said that he wanted the top-quality execution of the project. He said, “I will accept something better than other motorways of the country in terms of quality but nothing less,” He further added, “I ask Sindh Chief Minister [Murad Ali] Shah to keep an eye on the entire project so that quality is maintained, and the project is completed in a timely manner. “I have this habit of showing up suddenly and inspecting the quality. Call it bad or good but I have this habit. I will take CM Shah with me and go to inspect.” The PM reiterated.
The PM appreciated the public-private partnership model introduced by the Sindh government and hoped that the same would be practiced at the federal level. He said, “I believe that Planning Minister Ahsan Iqbal should consider the public-private partnership model”. He added, “It is imperative for the federal government to follow this model. The province of Sindh has already been doing this.” The PM asserted the need for linking the length and breadth of the country and said that linking Baluchistan with other parts of the country is highly important. He said, “Baluchistan is an important province of the country and Pakistan cannot achieve success without the success of Baluchistan.”
