Islamabad (Web Desk): Federal Minister for Information Shibli Faraz has said the PTI-led government is striving for Pakistan’s bright future.

Taking to his Twitter account, Faraz said that the government, under the leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan, is striving for Pakistan’s bright future and this journey towards development will continue at the same pace.

“Despite the challenges, Pakistan’s economic indicators are positive,” the minister said and added, “In the first half of the financial year, remittances increased by 27%, foreign direct investment by 150%, and cement production by 17%. In November, car sales increased by 68%, while sales of tractors and motorcycles also increased significantly.”

The minister’s tweet comes as the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) is holding a rally at Lahore’s Minar-i-Pakistan to oust the PTI-led government.

The gathering is to be addressed by the usual bigwigs of the PDM - its convener and Jamiat Ulema Islam – Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman, Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz and Pakistan Peoples’ Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.
