    I congratulate Every Pakistani citizen for a great Success in the country.and I am confident that PMLN Governance is positive news to the whole world and specially for International investers seeing Pakistan as a great investment opportunity.

    Secondly there are problems and obstacles to develop the deprived Nation which had been in deep shocks in the past.

    I am Electronic Engineer currently working as Performance Engineer in Verizon Wireless in Hartford, CT.
    I have completed my personal research for Pakistan to overcome its electricity shortages.
    I am confident that in Punjab we can produce sufficient Energy to fulfill Punjab industrial and residential requirements in one year given period.

    Similarly in two years we can produce enough electricity to meet the whole nation requirements and being Pakistani my services are free of cost for Pakistan that she can meet her goals.

    Best Regards.
