Opposition Cannot Do Anything Against PM Khan: Sheikh Rashid

ISLAMABAD: Minister for Railways Sheikh Rashid Ahmed says that the opposition cannot do anything against Prime Minister Imran Khan.

Addressing a news conference in Islamabad on Friday, he said Executive Committee of National Economic Council will likely to approve ML-1 project this month.

He said it will be a crossing free track, which will reduce travel time from Karachi to Lahore to seven hours, while it will take two hours from Rawalpindi to Lahore.

Sheikh Rashid Ahmed said ML-1 will enable trains to run at a speed of 160 kilometres per hour, which can be further extended to 200 kilometres per hour.

The Minister said ML-1 is a revolutionary project to be completed by the PTI government and will revamp the entire structure of Pakistan Railways.
