Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Sunday announced a Rs1 billion package for Mansehra district which he said would be used to resolve civic issues faced in the district.
He made the announcement while addressing a rally in Mansehra. The premier also announced that students securing top positions in schools, colleges and universities in the district will be given free laptops.
The premier vowed to transform KP into Punjab in terms of development, urging the people to decide whether they wanted to support a man “[famous for] taking U-turns, telling lies and failing to control inflation” or Nawaz Sharif who he said initiated far more development projects during his tenure.
PM Shehbaz said he had to take the decision to raise petrol prices and electricity tariff with a “heavy heart”, adding that to alleviate the “pain and sufferings” the government rolled out a subsidy plan for 80 million people.
