Karachi-Hyderabad-Sukkur Motorway Exclusion from CPEC Route angry Sindh.
In a significant development, Sindh’s caretaker chief minister, Maqbool Baqir, has penned a letter to the caretaker Prime Minister, Anwar-ul-Haq Kakar, expressing concern over the exclusion of Karachi-Hyderabad and Sukkur Motorway from the Sindh government’s China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project.
The letter highlights that the federal government has made the decision to exclude Karachi-Hyderabad and Sukkur Motorway from CPEC without providing any specific reasons for the move.
This exclusion has raised questions and uncertainties about the strategic importance of these motorways in the overall CPEC framework.
Caretaker Chief Minister Maqbool Baqir emphasized that while the critical roads of the Peshawar-Karachi Motorway project have been successfully completed, the essential M-Six link from Hyderabad to Sukkur Abtik remains incomplete.
