Islamabad - Deputy Speaker National Assembly Murtaza Javed Abbasi yesterday said that those who are conspiring against the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor are not well wishers of the nation.

While reacting to the resolution of KP Assembly, he said the government will ensure that western route will be constructed in accordance with the announcement made by Prime Minister. He said the CPEC will bring prosperity in the country and the government has allocated huge funds in PSDP to implement it. He stressed that all negative propaganda against the project should come to an end. He said the CPEC will pass from KP, from Jharikas to Dasu, and one of the biggest dry ports will be established at Havelian.

He alleged that KP government is unable to digest progress in Hazara division that’s why it is spreading misleading statements to misguide general public.

The deputy speaker warned if the provincial government does not stop opposing the corridor project, it will face strong public resistance in KP.
