Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Shehbaz Sharif has called out the government on it’s position on the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project by saying that “it is the same as the nation’s enemies”.

Shehbaz made the comments in his media talk outside the parliament on Monday, according to Express News.

‘First the government announced that they would increase gas prices, but now we are hearing that they are backtracking on this, what are they trying to prove with this indecision,” he said.

He added that the government is speaking in the voice of our enemies on CPEC.

    What does anyone expect from PTI. We all remember Imran Khan calling CPEC a joke that was being used by PML N to fool the nation. Imran Khan’s plan was to scare off the Chinese leader during his dharnas which is why so many of the projects were delayed. Pakistanis need to speak out to make sure that Imran Khan and PTI do not make a u turn on CPEC projects which will benefit Pakistan in the long term by setting the framework for the economy. Imran Khan and his followers were against taking CPEC loans even though the economic benefit will be there for generations to come but since PTI has no plan, they are only good at name calling and blaming others for nothing.Recommend
