    It was planned out during the 93 Benazir government , started out in Nawaz Sharif's government(who took credit for M-2), Continued in Musharraf(who took credit for M-1) and now if this starts.. Mian sahab will take credit.
    Nothing new.. that's us.

    Doesn't matter, as long as the common man gets the benefit of using the Motorways. The Faisalabad and Multan is a pretty busy route and Motorways will help a lot in uplifting the areas that it passes through. New industrial estates can be established.

    This is similar to the number of times people have taken credit for "starting" the Lowari Tunnel project. It still is not finished.

    Even the N-J project has been around for 30 years. Basha Dam project has been around for around 10 years now. Starting a project and continuing a project are two different thing.

    As if government is not pushing for energy projects. Budgeting doesn't mean all resources be diverted to just one or two things. If you can spare some time, do have a look at the federal budget. Amounts have already been allocated for both Energy and Law and Order.

    some history for you..............
    And yes here is something about why merely conceptualization isn't enough
    Now M4 should have been completed by yesteryear. This clearly indicates that project was delayed. PPP had every chance to claim the construction of this but they didn't.

    I believe the idea, or rather the inception of the project was in Benazir's tenure as I vividly remember reading about it.
    However, I may be wrong

    Thank you.


    P.S, point being.. there is a history of credit taking for someone else's actions.

    But same motorway will be connecting Karachi and Gawdar. So should be 6 or even 8 Lane. In future this will become the backbone of Pakistan.

    Constructing 6 Lane together, or construct 4 Lane then extend it to 6 Lane is much expensive....

    better make the railway network perfect of those 40 billion rupee its totally wastage of time poors cant afford expensive bus fares who travels on Motorways and poor's even dont own a car to travel between these cities i dont know what are the priorities of the government


    Railway is the backbone of any country and we are still neglecting it
