KP govt determined to complete Peshawar BRT: CM
PESHAWAR: Failing to complete a major infrastructure project on time, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf is in a panic mode and has sacked the chief of Peshawar BRT company blaming him for the delay.
Talking to reporters here Sunday, Chief Minister KP Pervez Khattak defended the decision of sacking the CEO of Peshawar Bus Rapid Transit for failing to meet the deadline saying the concerned official ignored repeated reminders by the provincial authorities.
Although, the delay had pushed the completion date for two months but it would still be a record to complete such a mega project in eight months, said the CM.
The CEO deliberately delay the procurement of buses, he added.
