LAHORE: Pakistan Muslin League-Nawaz (PML-N) will continue its efforts to protect people’s rights despite several challenges, said Federal Minister for Defence Production, Science and Technology Rana Tanveer Hussain, on Sunday.

He expressed these views while holding an open court at Muridke, where he listened to the various issues being faced by the people.

During Musharraf’s dictorial rule, we were imprisoned for daring to raise our voice in order to restore people’s rights; we will continue our struggle for the people, he emphasised.

The incumbent government has made history by presenting a sixth tax-free budget. Our country’s economic growth can be raised to more than six percent if we are not destabilised by the enemies of development as well as political opponents, he added.

People will vote for PML-N in the coming elections as we have brought development and progress for people’s welfare, the minister said.

Those who are against the completion of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) projects, which will cause our economy to flourish, have resorted to creating political destabilisation in Pakistan, he stated.

Despite all odds, the government added 11,000 megawatts of electricity to the national grid system, a move unprecedented since our inception. Further, they initiated CPEC, constructed motorways, and built highways worth billions of dollars, he artuclated.

They also managed to double our economic growth from three to six percent, while reducing tax and increasing the salary of government employees, the minister said.

The government should also be credited with ridding the country of extremism and terrorism while restoring peace in Karachi, Balochistan and FATA, he said.

MNA Rana Afzaal Hussain, Sheikhupura District Council Chairman Rana M Ateeq including chairmen from various union councils were also present on the occasion.
