Opposition angry over China's CPEC project in Pak Parliament, walkout from House

Islamabad:  China's ambitious CPEC project in Pakistan is being fiercely opposed. Opposition parties have started opposing it along with the public. Opposition members walked out of the House in the Pak Senate (Upper House) when the government did not get the right answer on the issue of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). Opposition members also opposed the meeting of Lieutenant General Retired Asim Salim Bajba with the Chinese envoy.

He said that when there is no chairman of CPEC and the period of its bill has also expired then what is the rationale of such a meeting. Why is Bajwa being paid even after his term ends. Opposition Senate members say Bajwa has been the controversial chairman. He is also accused of corruption. All opposition members demanded that no person who is accused of corruption be appointed to the post of chairman of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor in future. 

CPEC is China's ambitious project that passes through disputed areas such as Ghulam Kashmir and Aksai Chin. India has consistently opposed this project, as it passes through slave Kashmir. It is primarily a highway and infrastructure project that will connect China's Kashgar province to Pakistan's Guardar Port. The project will develop ports, highways, motorways, railways, airports and power plants as well as other infrastructure projects in Pakistan.

Pakistan PM Imran Khan in Sri Lanka - Only Kashmir dispute with India can be resolved by negotiation

Pakistan-India Can Resolve Kashmir Issue Through Dialogue: Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan is currently on a two-day Sri Lanka Visit. He said here on Wednesday that Pakistan has only Kashmir's 'dispute' with India and it can be resolved through dialogue. Addressing the Sri Lanka-Pakistan trade and investment conference, Khan said that he had offered India to hold peace talks when he was elected Prime Minister in 2018 but nothing happened.

Khan co-chaired the conference with Sri Lankan Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa. He said, "Our dispute is only with Kashmir and it can be resolved through dialogue." Earlier this month, India said that it wanted to normalize relations with Pakistan in an atmosphere free of terror, violence and instability. Khan said, "As soon as I came to power, I contacted my neighbor India and told Prime Minister Narendra Modi that the differences of the two countries can be resolved through dialogue."

'Business relations will reduce poverty'

He said, 'I did not get success but I hope you will understand. Poverty can be eradicated in the subcontinent only by increasing trade relations. India has said that it is Pakistan's responsibility to create an atmosphere free from terror and instability. Khan is the first Head of State to visit Sri Lanka since the COVID-19 Pandemic. He said that good relations between neighboring countries in the region will help in creating a business friendly environment by maintaining political stability, which will ultimately benefit the people.

Meeting with Muslim leaders

Initially, Muslim leaders of Sri Lanka were also allowed to meet Khan after refusal. The main party of Muslims - Sri Lankan Muslim Congress leader Rauf Hakim said that he had a meaningful discussion with Khan. He said that the Prime Minister of Pakistan (Pakistani PM In Sri Lanka) has expressed confidence in the ability of Muslim leaders to create communal harmony in Sri Lanka. Earlier, Imran Khan was about to address the Parliament of Sri Lanka, but the Sri Lankan government canceled his address on this occasion. The Sri Lankan government was afraid that Imran Khan would not raise the issue of Kashmir in his Parliament and that his relations with India could be affected.
