He said his rivals were against development projects initiated by him. “Let government distract from its agenda. This is what our opponents want,” he said.
PM said terrorists aim to hinder Pakistan’s road to development. He immediately took exception to his detractors, saying those who are blocking roads in protest are no different from the former.
“Both of them want to create chaos and anarchy in the country,” said Mr. Sharif. He said China’s investment plans were delayed due to sit-ins in the country.
