  1. Greate news for the people of GB and Chitral particularly and Generally entire Pakistani people.China is the most faithful friend of Pakistan not only at this time But from the very beginning since 1948 when Newly established Greate Chine was supported by the Government of Pakistan in UNO and struggled to make member of United Nations Organization(UNO) and endorsed it’s favour to China to be member of the Universal Organization(UNO). Since every Government of China frequent favours of Pakistan in every International issue and every Government of Pakistan either it is Democratic or Military extending their fulflag cooperation with Great China uptill today and Insha Allah uplife time the cooperation will be extended by Pak Govt: I think CEPEC is the Game changer program not for Pakistan, go South Asia I believe that for the entire World will be fruitful. This is the time we the Pakistan nation required to unite ourself. Imran Khan sahib and his respectable teammembers are requested to take it up as per their vision. Finally it is my request to Political parties to extend their full cooperation to PTI be govt: as a united Pakistani Nation so the perfect goal of the project of CEPEC could be gained within specified period
