Addressing a large number of students and faculty members at the Islamia University, Bahawalpur, Inspector General NH&MP, Zulfiqar Ahmad Cheema said it is a fact that the stronger the youth, the more developed the nation is. “The role of the youth in the nation building occupies the central place. The countries which utilize their youth in right direction are more developed,” he added.
The IG told the students: “Many countries of the world have been facing issues of fragile economy and terrorism but they successfully dealt with these challenges with maturity and courage. We would also overcome these challenges”. He educated the students on different aspects of road safety and sought a commitment from them that ‘they would never cross speed limit and would never use mobile phone while driving a vehicle’.
