reduced at globly and the incumbent government of Pakistan has passed on relief to the people of the country in this regard.

He said the PML-N government decreased the petroleum prices in the
region but other regional countries did not decreased prices of petroleum products.

leadership electricity load-shedding has reduced as compared to past, adding it will be totally removed from the country in the beginning of 2018.

Replying to a question, he said Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP)

government and now it has no any logic to come out on the roads for agitation or demonstration.

Although the Prime Minister name was not mentioned in Panama Papers but he had presented himself and his family for accountability, he added.
