'Mishandled' Gwadar Port project to be investigated

Karachi: Federal Minister for Port and Shipping Qamaruzzaman Kaira on Tuesday said that the government would probe into, what he described as the mishandled Gwadar Port project. "Deplorably, Gwadar Port is a mishandled issue as it is still lacking the connectivity network...there is no electricity there, rail route, roads nothing," Kaira told mediapersons at the inaugural ceremony of Rs 150 million KPT Overpass here at Karachi Port on Tuesday.
Kaira has said Gwadar Port cannot be operational before the year 2011 as it lacks required infrastructure and communication network and utilities.  [28/5/08]
