Drone protests discourage foreign investment


Planning and Development Federal Minister Ahsan Iqbal on Friday said that the people who are staging protests against the drone strikes are actually deterring foreign investments in the country.

Addressing a session of the Pakistan Engineering Congress on Friday, Ahsan Iqbal said that the drone protesters are not serving the nation. He further said that the nation does not support any sit-ins and political protests.

Further speaking, the federal minister stated that Imran Khan received the mandate for bringing peace in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) province.

He urged the political parties of Pakistan to stand with the federal government in solving national issues by rejecting the protest ways.

Ahsan Iqbal, while talking on the Kalabagh Dam, said that the issue is debatable on which not a single political party has reached on a consensus. He claimed that they do not want the country to be divided just for the revenue earned by the dam.
