    Here we go. The priority is making high ways and earning a quick buck while there are so many urgent needs in the country.

    This Highway building mania should be stopped immediately and should attend to other essential needs of the public. Corruption starts to flourish with highway building and MR lost 2015 elections mainly with corruption allegations!! The President should take control!!
