MANSEHRA, Oct 10 (APP): Federal Minister for Religious
Affairs Sardar Muhammad Yousuf on Monday rejected the false propaganda of KPK government against China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) and said the federal government did not change the route.
Soon we will organize an all parties conference against the
wrong conduct of provincial government in Hazara division.

Thousands of the people will get employment and business opportunities through CPEC, he added.
