Credit for CPEC goes to PML-N govt: Sindh governor


ISLAMABAD: Sindh Governor Muhammad Zubair said on Sunday that the entire credit goes to the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) government for initiating the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project and launching 10,000-megawatt power projects to resolve the load-shedding problem in Pakistan.

Talking to a private news channel, he said the PML-N government had taken many initiatives for restoration of peace in Karachi. Lamenting on the previous government’s performance in the port city, he said they did not focus their efforts towards improving the law and order situation in the metropolis.

Appreciating Punjab Chief Minister (CM) Shehbaz Sharif for initiating the record number of development projects in Punjab, he said that the Punjab CM had made history due to his excellent performance and service to the people.

Further, the Sindh governor said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan could not win a single election during the last 20 years but he was still running the party as chairman.

To a question, he said that it was a challenge to bring CPEC projects to Pakistan but the government figured out different ways to make the entire project successful.
