Even an enemy can’t harm Pak as Nawaz, Zardari did, Said PM Imran

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Sunday that even an enemy wouldn’t have harmed Pakistan as Nawaz Sharif and Asif Ali Zardari did during their previous tenures.


Addressing a gathering at Quetta, he said that how could a country function if thieves and plunderers are given power. “Forget about a country, a factory can’t function if it’s given to a looter.”


The premier said that no matter how much time it will take, but he will ensure that he will ensure they (Nawaz and Zardari) are sentenced so that no one like them can ever again contest the election.


PM Imran said that the opposition wants PTI government to collapse as they are scared that the authorities are getting pieces of evidence of their financial malpractices.


The prime minister said his government is committed to uplifting Balochistan and to make it at par with other developed parts of the country.


“The country will develop when the weak segments of the society are cared for by the state,” PM Imran said, adding that no nation can progress unless corrupt elements are brought to justice.


The prime minister further said under the Naya Pakistan Housing Programme, five million houses will be built which will provide shelter to those who cannot afford it due to their financial position. “Today, it is difficult for salaried persons to afford houses,” he said.


“In other countries, [the number of] people who take out a mortgage to build homes is quite high in comparison with Pakistan. A law will be introduced in Pakistan so that mortgages can be taken,” PM Imran said. “The State Bank of Pakistan is also encouraging commercial banks to disburse more housing loans to consumers.”


He added that companies from Malaysia and China are interested in investing in the housing programme.


Addressing the youth, the premier said more opportunities will be created for them so that they are able to start construction companies to benefit from the housing boom. “I urge the youth to start their own businesses and become entrepreneurs rather than looking at the government for jobs,” he added.


Emphasising on the importance of a master plan for Quetta, the prime minister said basic civic services can be ensured only when the cities are planned and organised.


“It is important to make a master plan for Quetta or it will keep expanding. Jam Kamal and I will work for the province. Balochistan is lucky they have a chief minister such as Jam sahab,” he added.
