QWP chief criticises Centre over CPEC

QWP chief criticises Centre over CPEC

PESHAWAR: Chairman Qaumi Watan Party (QWP) Aftab Ahmad Khan Sherpao has said that the federal government has completely kept Khyber Pakhtunkwa out of the ambit of CPEC, which would adversely affect the people.

In a statement here, he regretted that the grievances of KP had not been addressed in 6th Joint Committee for Cooperation (JCC) on CPEC in China. He said that three vital projects had been approved for Sindh, ie Karachi Circular Railways, Keti Bandar and Special Economic Zones, and it had satisfied the Sindh government.

However, he added, the fate of KP in CPEC is not yet certain, which has been causing embarrassment to Pakhtuns. Sherpao said that the QWP had not been taken into confidence on the outcome of the JCC, which created serious misgivings about it.
