ISLAMABAD The federal government—in a recently concluded huddle of cabinet—has decided to probe the cost incurred on Metro Bus projects launched by Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz’s (PML-N) government, stated federal minister for information Fawad Ch.

He was addressing a presser here in Islamabad today.

Shedding light on the whooping cost of projects, the information minister claimed the three metro bus projects [Lahore, Multan and Islamabad] were sub-standard. He added it was Punjab govt’s liability to provide subsidy to the masses of the province.

The minister termed news of hike in prices of gas and electricity fake while stating tax on salaried class wouldn’t be hiked.

The minister went on to say that no additional burden will be shifted on farmers.
