MITHI: Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal has said that the political opponents should shun politics of sit-ins and should play their role in the country’s progress.
He was talking to the media Friday at Islamkot after visiting Thar Coal block-II in Mithi. He said Pakistan is competing against the economies of India and other regional countries. There are no sit-ins happening neither in India nor Bangladesh.
He said execution of Thar Coal project shows that if we work collectively, we can achieve success. Thar’s coal can provide more energy than Saudi Arabia’s oil. We have decided to include the Thar Coal project in CPEC, he added.
To a question, the minister said Pakistan principally stood with Palestine in the United Nations General Assembly. He said Pakistan is an independent country having its independent foreign policy.
The entire world supported the joint resolution put forwarded by Turkey and Pakistan. We have a deep bond with the people of Palestine, he said. The US should review its foreign policy and should see why the lone superpower is being isolated in the international arena. Earlier, the interior minister visited the mining site, under construction power project, model house and Green Park project, where he was briefed by the Sindh Coal Mining Company chief Shamsuddin Sheikh. He also reviewed various schemes of Thar Foundation.
