Islamabad: Federal Minister for Planning, Development and Reforms Ahsan Iqbal has advised Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan to abandon politics of agitation and play his due role for the prosperity of the country.
Talking to a news channel, the Federal Minister also asked Imran Khan to avoid using derogatory language against other political leadership, as it did not suit him.
He also advised the PTI chief to avoid politicizing the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). He went on to say that the project should be kept above all politics like the nuclear program of Pakistan. He said the Chinese companies were investing in Pakistan under the national energy policy.
“All projects are proceeding with transparency. Some elements are objecting to the corridor project out of sheer jealousy.”
He said the country was on the path of economic development, due to the prudent policies of PML-N government and foreign investors were now taking keen interest to invest in Pakistan.
Ahsan Iqbal said the peace was being restored in the country due to operation Zarb-e-Azb, while Karachi operation was launched after the consultation with all the political parties. He said that the world has acknowledged the efforts and steps of Pakistan in war against terrorism.
