WITH the dismissal of the Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on 28 July by the Supreme Court, eye brows were raised about the US$ 62 billion fate-changing project of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). The Indian media took advantage of this situation and ran up bogus and delusory stories about CPEC creating a vacuum that whether or not Pakistan would adhere to the project. Some stories also were voiced on Pakistan’s press. The confusion was very ”well fabricated”. However the truth goes contrary to it.
The multi-billion enterprise would continue to be followed by all successive Governments as the crucial project is between Pakistan and China – a relationship that is well known for stability and permanence. Most of the political parties also hold similar views on the CPEC like that of the reigning Pakistan Muslims League-N (PML-N) and so there is no question and not even a single confusion should exist about its discontinuity and disorder in any mode in future.
