ANP leader says funds by Korean bank to construct Dir expressway lapsed

Awami National Party (ANP) spokesperson and former senator Zahid Khan has claimed that  90 million dollars, which was earmarked by a Korean bank for construction of 120 kilometres Chakdara to Dir expressway, hsa now lapsed due to  disinterest of the currently ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government.

Talking to journalists at Timergara, the ANP leader alleged that the Korean bank had taken back 90 million dollars it had provided during the previous government of PML-N for the construction of 120 kilometres Chakdara to Dir expressway, reports The News International.

“The ANP rejected renaming Abdul Wali Khan Timergara campus and ANP would strongly resist any such move,” Zahid Khan told the newspaper, adding his party welcomed upgrading of the campus to a full-fledged university however renaming the institute and recruitment of out of district people in the varsity would not be tolerated at any cost.

“Will the government representatives tell us as to why classes in Timergara Medical College could not resume even after the PM himself laid the foundation stone eight years ago and that why the Koto hydel power project could not start functioning even after long seven years,” Zahid Khan questioned.
