Roosevelt Hotel has been leased for 3 years, Khawaja Saad Rafiq

Lahore: ( Senior leader of Pakistan Muslim League (N) and Minister of Railways and Aviation Khawaja Saad Rafique has said that 1025 rooms of Roosevelt Hotel have been given on lease for 3 years.

Talking to the media, Federal Minister Khawaja Saad Rafiq said that this agreement is beneficial for Pakistan, we were in dire straits, we could not understand what to do with this hotel, we handed over 600 rooms in 18 days. Granted, the hotel will be returned in the same condition as it is, this lease will bring 220 million dollars to Pakistan.

He said that the contract has been signed with the city administration of New York, now all the stories about this hotel are over, outsourcing does not mean selling, nobody had experience of outsourcing in Pakistan.

Khawaja Saad Rafiq said that all the airports will be outsourced one by one, airports are there but basic facilities are not there, runway of Quetta has been constructed, reconstruction of old runway of Faisalabad, Lahore. The runway of the airport has also been upgraded while we have funds for Jinnah International Airport as well.

He further said that Hajj pilgrims had never gone directly from Quetta, direct Hajj flights are being operated from Quetta for the first time, the people of Pakistan have the right to get the best aircraft, for improvement we need to involve the private sector. It has to be brought, time is short but we will put PIA on track.
