PPP to protest against Sharif for not taking Parliament on board on CPEC

, 2:21 PM IST

Islamabad : The Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) has planned to launch a protest against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in the next national assembly session for not taking the Parliament on board despite the formation of a panel on the proposed China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

The PPP is of the view that the Prime Minister must address the Parliament on this issue as the committee has no legal and constitutional position.

Nawaz constituted an 11-member committee to hold periodic consultations with the provinces over the CPEC, the Dawn reports.

The committee, headed by the Prime Minister, includes Chief Ministers of all the four provinces and Gilgit-Baltistan in addition to federal ministers of planning, water and power, railways, communications and the chairman of the parliamentary committee on the CPEC.(ANI)
