PTI jealous of Lahore Metro train’s success, says Shehbaz
Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif said on Tuesday he was surprised that those very people were criticising Lahore’s Orange Line Metro Train who could not run Peshawar’s BRT, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
In an informal chat with the media outside the accountability court (AC) in Lahore, Shehbaz Sharif said the government was feeling ‘jealous’ because the BRT was not properly functional while the Orange train was doing very well.
He said the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) government had no idea that governments the world over announced subsidy on public transport.
When he was asked a question about an in-house change in the Punjab Assembly, he said since he was in jail he only came to know about political developments through newspapers.
Shehbaz claimed that he saved billions of rupees in large projects initiated in his era while not a single penny of corruption could be proved against him so far.
