OKARA (Web Desk/APP): Federal Minister for Planning and Development, Ahsan Iqbal said on Monday that there was a conducive environment of foreign investment in the country due to prudent polices of the government.

He stated this while inaugurating a library project completed at Rs 500 million at University of Education in Renala Khurd near here.

He urged the youth to play their role in the growth and prosperity of the country. He said the government was providing equal rights to women in all sectors to enable them to play their due role in national development.

Criticizing Imran Khan’s politics, he said that he should quit to see dreams of becoming prime minister overnight.

He said, when the present government came into power, at that time national fund was empty and with the sagacious policies of the incumbent PML-N government, now foreign exchange reserves have reached to 21 billion dollars.

The minister said that China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) would prove to be game changer and it would help usher in a new era of prosperity and development after its completion.

He claimed the work on various energy projects was in progress with a brisk pace, adding that load-shedding of electricity has been decreased considerably as compare to 2013.

Later, talking to the media, the minister said that Panama papers leaks would not affect the process of national progress and prosperity.

If Imran Khan will march towards Raiwind then the government will take every step to maintain law and order, he added.
