DERA MURAD JAMALI: Adviser to the Balochistan Chief Minister for Labour and Manpower Mohammad Khan Lehri has said that 250-km-long new roads are being constructed in Naseerabad PB-12 at a cost of Rs1.65 billion.

“The construction of new roads will enable farmers and growers of the area to easily transport their fruits, vegetables and other goods to different cities of the province,” he said.

Mr Lehri was speaking at the inauguration ceremony of Dera Murad Jamali N-65 to Faizabad road.

The project is estimated to be built at a cost of Rs900 million and would be 52 kilometres long. “We believe in introducing those schemes which benefit the people collectively and not selectively,” he said, adding that the road would be completed within two years.
