Pakistan can grow faster using natural resources

Senator Abdul Haseeb Khan has said that unfortunately, the leadership that came after Quaid-i-Azam did not follow the wisdom of the Quaid-i-Azam and did not make a sincere effort to solve the problems of the country. He was talking to a delegation of “Hum Pakistan” that met him during the reported week in relevance with the preparations for upcoming Independence Day celebrations on August 14.
During the meeting, the current situation in the country and the problems facing the people were discussed.

If our leadership starts following the footsteps of Quaid-i-Azam, Pakistan can make progress very soon. Pakistan has abundance of natural resources which can be used to develop Pakistan more than other countries in the region.
