In a reference to Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaaf agitation, he said those who staged sit-ins were once again trying to stop the development process in the country and that people should remain alert and foil their designs.
The $20 billion Chinese investment would help abolish energy crisis in the country, he said, adding that these huge power projects would be completed by 2017.
