  • Very Good but at the same time at least one more medical teaching hospital and a college and university must be built in these regions…

  • Sialkot city Pakistan ko hrr saal 4 to 5 billion dollars earn krr k deta hai. Sialkot mn work krny wali 70% percent labour ZAFARWAL and SHAKARGARH areas sy aati hai. SIALKOT to Shakargarh Road via Zafarwal totally distance almost 75 kilometers hai. Agr yeh road expressway type bnn jy toh SIALKOT 10 billion dollars bhi earn krr skta hai. kyun k khraab Road ki waja sy females factory nehi ja skti. Females need more safety and security for traveling and the present road is unable to provide safety and security. Every year a lot of people robbed by the robbers on this road.

  • I think, Lillah – Jhelum dual carriage way is last not in priority of this government as usual. Request is to government at least give us old road in it’s original condition to save the people lives as this area is also not have any hospital and on this broken road distance of 2 hour being traveled in 5 to 6 hours. This area also have cement factory, ICI Soda Ach, Khewra Sàlt Rànge, peoples having trouble to reach at work place, so don’t see who vote PML N or who vote PTI, we all have equal rights and paying equal taxes. Look into the matter and ÇM Punjab and PM should that area to see the hurdles of people’s.
