Shehbaz Sharif was critical of the politics of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chief Imran Khan and said that the PTI leader harmed the country by his 126-day long sit in and said that he is again creating uncertainty in the country and this uncertainty can harm the multi-billion dollar China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).
Journalists also had loans written off
The Patriot has learned through credible sources that ‘some’ among the journalist community also had their loans amounting to millions written off. If the government forms the commission according to the already presented TOR’s these journalists could find themselves in great trouble. Punjab Chief Minister has also expressed a strong resolve to bring to justice those who dealt the country loss of billions by having loans written off.
