Lahore : Punjab Chief Minister Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif has said that no one other than Modi can be happy over the plan of lockdown of Pakistan by Niazi Sahib as conspiracies are being hatched from within the country to stop the way of progress and prosperity of Pakistan besides and evil plans have been made for stopping the development of the country.

He said that those conspiring to lockdown Islamabad, Pakistan and CPEC are materializing the dreams of enemy of Pakistan sitting across east border in the real sense which is a great cruelty to Pakistan and its 20 crore people. Imran Khan wants to do economic murder of people of Pakistan by lock-downing Islamabad by becoming “Brown Sahib” but the nation will never allow to do so and prove to be Rockwall for foiling his designs, he added. A leader who has to guide the nation, unfortunately, has indulged in telling lies, he added. From where he has learnt such leadership, he questioned?
Shahbaz Sharif said that Imran Khan intends to lockdown Pakistan through the money of those who got written off loans of billions of rupees of the nation and loot and plunder of qabza mafia and wants to increase difficulties and problems of the nations through sit-ins. He said that the nation has to decide whether it wants progress and prosperity of the country or its ruining by supporting these elements. It has to decide to make the country Pakistan of Quaid and Iqbal or stop the country move ahead by closing projects like CPEC through sit-ins.

The Chief Minister said that China has proved to be a sincere friend by giving an investment package of 46 billion dollar in Pakistan in a difficult hour.
He said that implementation of CPEC projects was delayed due to sit-ins. There is no role of Modi or any Jew in postponement of visit of Chinese President to Pakistan nor foreign hands were involved in it, all it was done by some our own who wasted precious time of the nation by staging sit-ins in Islamabad in 2014. These elements even did not give any importance to the request of Chinese Ambassador for the visit of Chinese President to Pakistan, he added.
He said that CPEC is a great blessing of Allah Almighty for Pakistan, which should be completed at all costs. He said that work is being continued round the clock speedily and transparently on CPEC projects.
