Shahbaz Sharif, Punjab Chief Minister, just inaugurated the first test-run of Lahore’s Orange Line Metro Train (OLMT). The ceremony started at Laxmi Chowk where he described the OLMT as a “gift” for the people of Pakistan. The CM promised to introduce similar facilities across Pakistan.
“The OLMT is not just a development project. Rather, it is the manifestation of democratic resolve to serve the common man [sic]. Teachers, students, common citizens, labourers, and people from all walks of life will benefit from Orange Line Metro Train. The OLMT project will transform people’s lives. The project will become the basis of an interaction between different classes of society by creating a sense of equality and ownership in social terms.”
