Election season is manifesto season. A few days ago, it was the PPP and today, it's the turn of the PML-N to reveal to the voters what it plans to do for them if they win the upcoming election.

Headlined with the slogan "Vote ko izzat do — khidmat ko vote do", the document promises:

  1. to raise the GDP growth rate to over 7 per cent
  2. to eliminate poverty by 2030 through welfare programmes
  3. to create at least 100,000-200,000 jobs

You can see the rest of the claims here.
