Minister Bilal said this while he was at the project’s building site. He said that Mohsin Raza Naqvi, the Chief Minister (CM) of Punjab, really wants to finish the project before the deadline. He also said that the government would make sure the contractors had everything they needed to finish the project early because it was so important to the public. Riaz Hussain, the Executive Director of Technical for the Punjab Central Business District Development Authority (PCBDDA), later told the minister about how the project was coming along. He said that the government had finished all of the work on the piles and that the slabbing of the barrels would be done in the estimated time. Heavy machinery has been brought in to speed up the development process, as the Chief Minister asked.
