The PML-N lawmaker Rushad Khan in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa said that the success of PML-N in Chakwal was possible as the party had set a new example of public service in four and half years and fulfilled all the promises made with people whether it was elimination of load-shedding, crushing of terrorism, brought economic stability, established network of motorways and highways besides improvement of railways system and restoring of peace in KPK, FATA and Karachi.
