ISLAMABAD: Minister for Planning and Development Ahsan Iqbal has said that Pakistan is leading towards progress and development due to prudent policies of government.

In a statement, he said those who have failed politically, now want civil and military confrontation for their ulterior motives.

The minister said no foreign investor was willing to bring a dollar into Pakistan in 2013, but during 2015 the PML-N government attracted forty-six billion dollars CPEC investment from China.

He said more than 10,000mw electricity would be added to national grid by 2018 and another 15,000mw was in pipeline for addition by 2025.

He said the PML-N government had initiated and committed the highest ever investment for modernising Pakistan’s energy road, rail & air infrastructure, which would transform the economy in next few years.
