ANP terms CPEC pivotal for solidarity of Pakistan

PESHAWAR, Jan 2 (Pakistan Point News - APP - 02nd Jan, 2017 ) : Awami National Party (ANP) City District President Malik Ghulam Mustafa on Monday said that China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) would not be a source of development in Pakistan rather a key for solidarity of the country. He said that previous governments intentionally and unintentionally kept the western areas backward despite the fact that these areas were rich in natural resources including gas, oil and mineral resources.

He said that protracted unrest and law and order situation in these areas created sense of deprivation among the people, adding that the CPEC project would surely address these deprivations in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan. He said that if the CPEC project would be executed as per the commitments of the Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif the federating units would further come closer and equal opportunities of development in all the provinces would usherin a new era of prosperity and peace.
