ISLAMABAD – In what appears to be a confessional statement, minister for Interior Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said no one is serious in eliminating corruption and only slogans are being raised in this regard.

Inaugurating the Army Welfare Trust (AWT) Sangjani-Paswal Interchange at a ceremony on Friday, chaudhry Nisar revealed that there should be an end to difference between what we say and what we act because this difference led to huge destruction sometimes.

“Everybody talks about corruption however, we need to call a spade a spade,”  Chaudhry Nisar asserted.

 The minister said the interchange on Motorway (M-1) would prove to be an important milestone in connecting people of different areas. He maintained that it would not only ensure progress and prosperity but also provide residents of  the area an easy access to Lahore, Islamabad, Sargodha and other important cities.

‘Hundreds of thousands of people living in dozens of villages and adjacent residential colonies would get facility to travel through this interchange’ said Nisar Ali Khan.

The law maker observed that there should be no division among the masses.

‘A nation which follows a wrong path cannot progress,’ he said.

The PML-N stalwart acknowledged that it was quite difficult to deliver good things in present times adding that issues could not be addressed through protests or sit-ins.

In his welcome address, AWT Chief Executive Officer Zaheeruddin Babar said the Sangjani Interchange had been a longstanding demand of the locals, AWT and other allied societies and expressed thanks to Chaudhry Nisar and the National Highway Authority (NHA) for their cooperation.
