ISLAMABAD – Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif has said that those involved in negative politics want to create problems for Pakistan rather than solving them.

We aim at providing affordable electricity to the masses", said the prime minister. He further said that he will personally monitor progress of energy projects so as to ensure that timelines are met.
