‘Nawaz ousted as punishment for CPEC’

ry 9, 2018

KARACHI: The Federal Climate Change Minister Mushahid Ullah Khan has said that Nawaz Sharif was ousted as a punishment for his role to build the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project.

The federal minister who is also the central Information secretary of Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) stated this on Wednesday while talking to newsmen here at the Karachi Press Club on Monday.

The minister said that Nawaz Sharif’s passage had been obstructed several times since the Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) came to power in 2013 and even the visit of the Chinese president to Pakistan had to be put off for the same reasons. He said on some occasions, Imran Khan impeded the passage of Nawaz Sharif while on other occasions Tahirul Qadri performed the same role.

He said the PML(N) government in the last four years had been able to overcome fundamental problems of the country including those related to shortage of power and gas supply. He said Nawaz deserved the credit for improving the law and order situation in Karachi
