ISLAMABAD – The chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan has accepted the challenge of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N)’s challenge of building metro bus project in Rawalpindi-Islamabad with only Rs 8 billion.

According to an official communique issued by PTI’s central media cell the proposed challenge has been accepted and now Rs 8 billion are due as per announced by Federal Information Minister Pervaiz Rashid.

Communique stated that with this amount PTI would not only come up with better transport system in Islamabad but also provide civic facilities for the residents.

Official statement also maintained that PML-N government was spending at least five times more than the estimate of Asian Development Bank for the Metro Bus project. “If its not a corruption then what is it?” press release added further.

PTI also vowed to consult court of law regarding Metro Bus Project.

It is pertinent to mention here that during May 11 speech, Khan criticized the construction of Metro Bus project in Islamabad terming it as an expensive project. “It could be made in just Rs 4 billion and PML-N government is spending Rs 24 billion over this obsolete project,” Khan said in D-Chowk speech.

Responding to Khan’s accusation, Pervaiz Rashid proposed a challenge in which he asked Khan to build such a project in Rs 8 billion and prove them wrong.
