CPEC is the vision of Zardari, facts can’t be changed via lies: Nayyar Bokhari


ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) Secretary General (SG) Syed Nayyar Hussain Bokhari has claimed that China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) was former president Asif Ali Zardari’s vision and that party pioneer Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto cemented the friendship with China.

In a statement issued here on Thursday, Nayyar Hussain Bokhari said that Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif cannot change historical facts by telling lies.

He said that if Asif Ali Zardari had not taken back Gwadar Port from Singapore and given it to China, the corridor could not have been materialized. He said that the Sharif’s are trying to make the project controversial.

“The murderer of Model Town martyrs will never enter the Prime Minister House, rather he will go to prison soon,” the PPP SG further stated.

Meanwhile, Punjab PPP Press Secretary Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar also slated Shehbaz Sharif for delivering a speech which was based on lies. He said that Shehbaz Sharif is suffering from a mental condition and is working against no one but his own elder brother.

“Shehbaz has been in power perpetually but still asking for more time to change Thana culture. Nawaz Sharif has gone and now it is Shehbaz’s turn,” concluded Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar.
