Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Friday claimed that his government has completely eliminated terrorism from the country in three years and is building a “new Pakistan” with several development projects. “It is my government that has eliminated terrorism from Pakistan in three years. No one else could do this. It is only my government that has completely eliminated this menace,” he said, addressing a public rally in Sangla Hills, some 80km from Lahore.
Watch what else is making news:
He vowed that the agenda of “those people trying to stop progress” in the country would not be successful.
“Today’s Pakistan is much better than it was three years ago. We are making a new Pakistan. However, some forces do not want to see Pakistan progress. They are trying their best to stop Pakistan from progress but they will not succeed,” he said. He alleged that former military dictator Gen Pervez Musharraf and the previous PPP government did not do anything for the country.
“Our government will end electricity loadshedding from the country in 2018. The China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) will also change the destiny of Pakistan,” he said. Sharif further said that today whole world is accepting that Pakistan is progressing and in coming years it will emerge an economically strong country on the map of the world.
