‘Govt trying to sabotage CPEC’  

LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader and former railways minister Khawaja Saad Rafique has said that the government was trying to sabotage the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project.

Addressing his party workers in Lahore on Sunday, Rafique stressed that the government should quit its attempts to roll back CPEC project, criticising the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government for “destroying public institutions”.

“The current government is destroying (public) institutions that we had improved,” he said. “We revived the railways’ department but the government seems to be inclined on destroying it.”

Rafique expressed disappointment with Railways Minister Sheikh Rasheed Ahmad’s attitude towards the ‘honest officers’ of the department.

The PML-N leader also criticised the government for increasing the prices of essential commodities like electricity and gas. “They are unable to take the country’s affairs forward. They are incapable and inexperienced,” he added.
