All must get behind the PM to make a shandar Pakistan. New is not always better. shandar is always shandar. In evaluating projects, it is better to build those that earn foreign exchange as they add directly to the net wealth of the country. We have a road link with China. We should next offer a right of way for a pipeline to ease the Chinese import of oil - I am sure the Chinese will be happy to pay in forex for the right of way.

Since he has been elected as the PM of Pakistan,(not PML-N) political differences aside,he should be supported by the entire nation to make him a success.One would be the first to criticize him if he is once again swayed by his old habits he is famous for.Good luck to you Mr.PM! Please do not disappoint us this time.
