“The PML-N took solid steps for the restoration of a lagging economy. Tremendous hard work has been gone into ensuring a peaceful, prosperous and economically self-reliant Pakistan for future generations.” He said one of the main reasons the country had been moving in the right direction was due to the untiring efforts of PML-N.

“Thousands of megawatts electricity has been added to the national grid due to the completion of a number of energy projects.” The CM continued that four major energy projects would be completed in a record period of 22 months and the completion of ongoing projects would ensure sufficient electricity in the future. He issued this statement while speaking to a delegation of PML-N office-bearers in London.
