    He's literally eating away Punjab's development budget to build Lahore.

    I thought orange train and metro projects were enough to satisfy his greed and fill his coffers but his avarice knows no bounds

    He will use Punjab budget not federal...

    This can be one of the cheapest mass transport in the world... if it can be successfully implemented... I m not sure it's feasible

    But then what's the difference if in Punjab - Pakistan, the whole budget of the province is being spent on a single city and that too only on the transport...health and education are being neglected deliberately and what about other citiies especially the southern Punjab?

    Aug-Oct will be the rainy seaon and the dengue will return. There will be an acute dearth of beds and doctors in the hospitals.

    The point is that indian scum was trying to stir ethnic sentiments, my answer is in that background not endorsing the project. I think there are already enough projects to solve transport problems, and the government should wait to see their results before committing further funds for that sector, besides there are numerous other areas that need focus including education, health care, and social services.

    Novel Idea?
    For God's Sake man!!
    Do not cheer every single dumb step just because you support the party! This is perhaps the most stupid idea to have ever come to his mind. For a country like Pakistan with limited finance and budget, he is literally ruining the future spending on such stupid schemes! I hope this is not an other project to shower his blessings upon his very own, but then again, i cannot find it in myself to hope for anything good at all from these people.
