Mr. Asad Qaiser, a reputable member of Pakistan’s National Assembly, has set up a Parliamentary committee. This committee will look after the progress of various mega projects that fall under the umbrella of China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). The committee consists of 14 MNA’s and 7 Senators from all major political parties.
Massive criticism on this move by the senators who were not even willing to be a part of it.
A Senate committee led by Sherry Rehman of PPP is already functioning to serve this purpose. Thereby, the unnecessary step of Asad Qaiser is not much appreciated. In addition, it is considered as the ruling party’s dirty diplomacy to get hold of the matters that are currently working in favour of the previously formed committee.
However, the government claims that the aim of this committee is to monitor the development of projects under CPEC. And also, to suggest effective ways to complete the China Pakistan Economic Corridor projects on time. Therefore, the establishment of this committee is still controversial.
