The government is determined to eliminate load-shedding till next year by all means. We admit that some areas have been facing issues regarding electricity but these electricity faults are temporary. The incumbent government is making all out efforts for adding record electricity in national grid station. PML-N government has mainly focused in power sector. The vision of Prime Minister is to bring the country out of darkness as he is personally monitoring the development on power projects.

The hotline contact between DGMOs of India and Pakistan is a routine activity. India will always continue its aggressive attitude towards Pakistan and will also continue its brutalities and violation of human rights in Kashmir. Kashmiris are fighting for their right to self-determination and their movement could never be controlled by force. The world must realize that Kashmir is main dispute among two nuclear powers. Moreover, stable Afghanistan is also in the interest of Pakistan but India is using Afghan soil for its evil designs in Pakistan.
