He is optimistic about Dams construction as well. In a recent meeting, to a question of this scribe, Sardar Tanveer said that people will remain busy in chit chat only and the dam will be built as government has visualized. He said that we the Pakistanis have done many such things in the past. For example we got nuclear technology and that without the consent of world powers. It was not an ordinary task to get atomic deterrent but we did it. Further we have changed the map of the world. We established a new state in the sub continent under the leadership of Qauid e Azam. Therefore I am sure we can build dam as well and not only one dam but many we can construct if we have will and determination.
Earlier Sardar Tanveer has also served the province as care taker minister for food and agriculture.
