Rana Sanaullah (Law Minister, Punjab): 

“China Pakistan Economic Corridor was being delayed by unconstitutional sit-ins of some political parties. Such elements could not see Pakistan prospering and tried their level best to sabotage this game changing project. Now, once again these elements want to create hurdles in economic development of the country through their protests even the nation has already rejected the politics of sit-ins and protests. Everyone should be accountable. The incumbent government is determined to resolve the issue of appointment of members of the Election Commission within a week.”
