‘Im­ran-Qadri nexus, a bid to sab­o­tage eco­nomic suc­cesses’

Pakistan Observer - - NATIONAL -

ISLAMABAD—Min­is­ter for Plan­ning, De­vel­op­ment and Re­forms Prof. Ah­san Iqbal has said Chair­man, PTI Chief Im­ran Khan PAT Chief Tahi-rul Qadri’s nexus was once again bent upon dis­rupt­ing eco­nomic achieve­ments and suc­cesses of PML-N gov­ern­ment, at­tained af­ter 3-year of hec­tic ef­forts and pru­dent re­forms.

“Due to pru­dent eco­nomic poli­cies, re­forms and eco­nomic sta­bi­liza­tion achieved af­ter three years of ef­forts, Pak­istan has been de­clared as emerg­ing mar­ket by US based in­dex provider Mor­gan Stan­ley Cap­i­tal In­ter­na­tional (MSCU) af­ter many years which was an­other achieve­ment of the present gov­ern­ment”, Prof Ah­san Iqbal told jour­nal­ists here on Fri­day. Pak­istan, he said, has now achieved a sta­tus in the in­ter­na­tional mar­ket and hoped that as a re­sult of this suc­cess, the in­ter­na­tional in­vestors would come to Pak­istan and in­vest in var­i­ous sec­tors for the so­cio eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment of the coun­try.

Prof.Iqbal in­formed that the world has US $ 1.7 tril­lion funds for in­vest­ments and if Pak­istan suc­ceeds to at­tract even one per­cent of it, it would be a big amount of for­eign in­vest­ment for the coun­try. The Min­is­ter called upon all po­lit­i­cal par­ties to join hands with the gov­ern­ment for fur­ther en­hanc­ing sus­tain­able eco­nomic growth in the coun­try.

He re­gret­ted that when­ever Pak­istan re­ceived a good news about its eco­nomic achieve­ments, some el­e­ments start con­spir­ing against elected gov­ern­ment and talk about Dhar­nas (Sit-ins). He said such el­e­ments were afraid of the gov­ern­ment’s eco­nomic achieve­ments and in­stead of sup­ple­ment­ing it’s ef­forts, they play up with the in­ter­est of the coun­try, just to save their po­lit­i­cal ca­reers.
