Longest bridge on River Indus inaugurated at Jhirk

Excerpts: The longest bridge on the Indus River in Pakistan, the 1.7 kilometre-long Sir Aga Khan Bridge, was inaugurated by Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairperson Bilawal Bhutto Zardari at Jhirk-Mulakatiar on Monday.

At the start of his speech, Bilawal congratulated Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah for constructing the longest bridge on the River Indus.

The Sir Aga Khan Bridge will connect Thatta and Tando Mohammad Khan.

“We have associated this bridge with Sir Aga Khan because the first jamaat khana in Pakistan was established in Jhirk, which was once a bustling city.”

— Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah

According to details, the project has been completed with a cost of Rs. 4.5 billion, under public-private partnership, in a record period of three years. After the construction of the bridge, the village-city of Tando Muhammad Khan is now connected with National Highway, which would help in early contacts of the population of rural parts to urban areas of the province, as well as rapid development of agriculture and industrial sectors.

  2. Family of Aga Khan have always served Pakistan. Aga Khan III was the first President of Muslim League for the creation of Pakistan. Prince Aly Khan served as a permanent representative of Pakistan at the UN. Prince Sadruddin served as the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. Prince Karim Aga Khan IV has established Agha Khan Hospital and University in Karachi and many health centre in various places of Pakistan. I thank the government of Sindh for naming this longest bridge in Pakistan in the memory of Aga Khan III.
