FAISALABAD, May 28 (APP): Federal Parliamentary Secretary for Science & Technology Muhammad Talal Chaudhry on Sunday said Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif had the credit to make Pakistan the first Islamic nuclear power on May 28, 1998.

Talal said the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) was a gateway to economic progress and prosperity for the country as the mega project would create a large number of employment opportunities for the youth.
He said due to effective and prudent policies adopted by the government under the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif, the country had been put on the path of progress and prosperity as the national economy was flourishing by leaps and bounds.

On this occasion, Advisor to Punjab Chief Minister MPA Rai Haider Ali Kharl said the PML-N had made Pakistan’s defence impregnable by conducting nuclear tests.

He said a number of development projects were underway in the education and health sectors.
He also appreciated Malik Muneer Ahmed for joining the
PML-N.
A cake was also cut to commemorate the Youm-i-Takbeer.
