ISLAMABAD - Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani Thursday said the statement of Chief of the Army Staff Ashfaq Parvez Kayani on country's sovereignty was reflective of the government's policy. "We are a responsible nation and my reaction to the US belligerent posturing towards Pakistan is that of General Kayani", Prime Minister said while talking to reporters after performing ground-breaking of multi-billion rupees Zero Point Interchange project here on Thursday. Gilani said that no stone would be left unturned in defending the borders and no external force would be allowed to conduct operations inside Pakistan. He said the nation should not get upset by the statements of Admiral Mike Mullen, who threatened that more strikes would be carried out inside Pakistan's territory. Prime Minster said the government would take all steps to defend the country's borders. Earlier, addressing the ground-breaking ceremony, the Prime Minister said request for the acceptance of resignations from Pakistan Muslim League-N ministers had been forwarded to President Asif Ali Zardari. He said Punjab government would remain intact, while the PML-N play a role of positive opposition at the Centre. While unveiling the plaque and performing the ground-breaking ceremony of the Rs 2.3 billion Zero Point Interchange to provide signal-free flow for traffic in the federal capital, Prime Minister said that Islamabad would be made one of the most beautiful cities of the world, adding it was his priority to personally look after such projects in the city. Prime Minister said he was proud to have personally selected the site of the present Parliament House, and also played a key role in the development of I-8 Sector, Ministers Enclave and Parliament Lodges, which all were his own brainchild. "Had I not been a politician, I would have been an architect", he emphasized. He said there was also a need for having low-income housing schemes with all facilities, besides a transport system comprising CNG buses. He said Islamabad should be a city for tourism, education, art and culture. He also said he has been a member of Parliament for six times and a minister for several times, but recalled that he used to get bored and had to go to Lahore for some entertainment. He directed the CDA to ensure that the people do not face any inconvenience during the construction of Zero Point Interchange and be provided alternative routes. The Prime Minister said during the February 18 election, democratic forces succeeded and the people of Pakistan and the four provinces put in place a broad-based government at the Centre and coalition government in the provinces. He said the government lifted ban on all trade, student and labour unions and, following the vision of Benazir Bhutto, would restore the 1973 Constitution, ensure independent judiciary and freedom of media. Gilani recalled that he was unanimously elected by the Parliament as Prime Minister, as the people of Pakistan wanted to bring a change in the country. He said no government in Pakistan could function without the support of the masses and the present government had the full backing of the people of Pakistan. Highlighting the salient features of the project, Chairman CDA Kamran Lashari said it would be beneficial for thousands of motorists, coming in and leaving the city on daily basis. He assured that that the construction company, M/s Maqbool Associates, would   complete the project within stipulated timeframe of two years. The project would have a modern cloverleaf type bridge, including pedestrian bridges, he said. Lashari said the Zero Point Intersection was the busiest and witnessed heavy traffic on Kashmir and Islamabad Highways, causing bottlenecks, delays and led to increased pollution, all new projects are being completed with an elaborate plan to plant new trees to make Islamabad green and clean. Under the city's master plan, he said that there is a plan to have avenues between every sector and mentioned the construction of 7th and 9th Avenues to facilitate the motorists. The 8th Avenue, also known as the Faisal Avenue, was also being extended and a portion of the interchange at the PIMS intersection will be opened soon. Lashari said work is underway to acquire land for new sectors and to speed up the pace of development in the capital.
