PESHAWAR: Federal Minister for Planning, Development and Reforms Ahsan Iqbal has said that not a single inch has been changed in the routes of Pak-China Economic Corridor calling the news regarding alteration in the route map as ‘rumours’. Iqbal was speaking to the media on Monday after attending a workshop on civil services reforms for achieving the Vision 2025 goals. To questions of media Iqbal said that the Pak-China Economic Corridor is a ‘fate changer’ as it has projects worth multi billions associated which will benefit all the four provinces. “It is not a name of a road but it has many routes which will connect Gwadar to Khunjerab after which Pakistan will become a bridge between the central Asian countries and China,” he said. There are certain elements who do not want to see Pakistan becoming a commercial hub and they are spreading the rumours. He explained in detail the route of the proposed road link.
