PESHAWAR: Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Pervez Khattak and senior provincial minister Inayatullah jointly inaugurated the Bab-i-Peshawar flyover on Monday. The ceremony was attended by PTI Chairman Imran Khan and Jamaat-i-Islami chief Sirjaul Haq.
Bab-i-Peshawar flyover is the country’s second multi-level flyover — the first was built in Karachi.

Speaking on the occasion, the chief minister congratulated the people of Peshawar over the inauguration of the gigantic flyover and said “we have started to revive the lost glory of the provincial capital”.
