CM Punjab briefs Balochistan students about CPEC


Punjab Chief Minister Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif has said that billions of rupees were being spent on development projects including China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) in Balochistan under the leadership of Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif.

He expressed these views while discussing the importance of CPEC to a delegation of Balochistan students. “Our joys and sorrows are common and we will distribute our resources accordingly,” he said, while adding that: “We will be developed when we will work united and take hard work as pinnacle of our faith.” He emphasized that honesty should be promoted and work should be done to eliminate corruption while national resources should be spent on progress and prosperity of the people.

Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif further said that development of Balochistan and prosperity of the Baloch people is top priority of the PML-N government.

The CM told the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) is such a mega project which would also change the destiny of Balochistan and the days to come in real terms will belong to the people of that province. “The scope is wide open that after CPEC completion, a huge number of jobs will be available to Baloch people,” he said, adding that the government is providing electricity to the far flung areas of Balochistan as no progress is possible without meeting this basic necessity.

The government is also fast completing infrastructural projects in Balochistan, Shehbaz said, adding that a huge investment awaits for this province. He further said Balochistan Chief Minister Sanaullah Zehri with the cooperation of the federal government is doing much for the people of his province.
