You cannot accelerate a project without more funds and more manpower. I wish news sites would filter out and stop publishing this meaningless PR nonsense of “official says finish project faster”

@Abrar-UL-Hassan, clearly you haven't really read KhanRA's comment. He said nothing about SM. It is our media which publishes this PR for which they get paid well in the form of Government advertising
