The minister said that people also reposed confidence in Pakistan People's Party in elections that held in Gilgit-Baltistan, Azad Jammu and Kashmir and by-elections.

He said that after coming into power, the PPP-led government faced challenges such as terrorism, situation in Swat and rest of the country was critical.

"Food commodities which were being imported at that time are now being exported," he said.

The minister said that the Constitution had also been revived in its original form adding that the President had transferred his powers to the Parliament.

Replying to a question he said that the federal government had released extra amount to the Punjab government but desired results were not achieved.

Kaira said that a huge amount was spent on the construction of a road in a specific area of Punjab. He said that a large part of budget was utilized on a single city in Punjab.

He said that Pujab government should answer to the white paper issued by Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi.

To another question about minimizing loadshedding, he said "the credit for that goes to Secretary Water and Power Nargis Sethi who took decisions in this regard."

"We are waiting for an answer from the Canadian High Commission and will only take a decision in this regard when the details will be provided to us," he added.
