Country making progress under PM’s leadership: Kirmani


Special Assistant to the Prime Minister, Dr Syed Asif Kirmani, said Sunday the country was making progress—politically and economically—under the leadership of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

Addressing a public gathering here at Bhara Kahu, he said the economy was growing, as law and order situation in the country had improved due to hectic efforts of the incumbent government.

Terrorist activities had reduced and the menace would be completely rooted out from the country soon, he added.

He said energy shortage would be overcome till 2018. He said the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) was a game changer for the entire region, and work on it would continue despite internal and external conspiracies.

Imran Khan could not digest the development in Pakistan and his politics of protests, sit-ins and demonstrations had caused heavy losses to the country, he added.

Kirmani said the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf chief had admitted that he had established an offshore company in 1996 for evasion of taxes.

He said the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) had always respected court verdicts, adding the apex court would decide the Panama Papers case in accordance with law.

Acting Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) Prime Minister Tariq Farooq said the prime minister had strengthened the freedom movement by vigorously highlighting the Kashmir issue at international forums.
