HAZARA: Prime Minister Imran Khan says China Pakistan Economic Corridor has become a whole encompassing project to play a key role in the development of Pakistan.
Addressing the inaugural ceremony of Havelian-Mansehra Section of Hazara Motorway on Monday, he said CPEC is not the name of a road; rather it is a new vision for development.
The Prime Minister said youth are our biggest asset and their potential will be fully harnessed for national development. He said Pakistan is blessed with plenty of resources which are needed to be properly utilized.
Imran Khan said the government is working hard to transform the economic situation of the country. He said we have waived off the duty on all hospital equipment and machinery to encourage investments into hospitals and healthcare. He said Health Insaaf Cards provided by the government will help the poor receive quality medical care free of cost.
He said we are focusing on agriculture and industry to bring prosperity in the country by providing job opportunities to the youth.
Imran Khan said the housing project started by the government will facilitate forty allied industries, creating a number of employment opportunities. He said five million houses will be constructed in five years’ tenure of the incumbent government.
Referring to the political situation, he said those who came to hold protest in Islamabad could not stay for a few days as they had no objective. On the other hand, he said, his party held a sit-in in Islamabad for 126 days, as it had a clear objective and mission. He said the JUI-F sit-in had no clear agenda and the seminary students were brought to participate in it on false promises. The Prime Minister said the selling of religion is the biggest sin.
Imran Khan said leaders of PML-N and PPP also made speeches at the container of JUI-F as they had the vested interests that they wanted to protect. He said their protest was aimed at diverting the attention from the crucial issue of Kashmir.
The Prime Minister said he will not be pressured by blackmailing of opposition parties. Imran Khan challenged his political opponents that he will not spare even a single person that plundered the wealth of the nation.
