DERA MURAD JAMALI: Deputy Speaker of the National Assembly Qasim Khan Suri has said that the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) will fulfil its promise about elimination of poverty and injustice from the country and the party’s government has launched the Ehsaas Kafalat programme for this purpose.
Talking to reporters in Usta Muhammad during his visit to Jaffarabad district on Saturday, he said: “Unfortunately the PTI came to power when the national economy was sinking and the country was facing the worst economic crisis and moving towards bankruptcy.”
However, he said, today things were being normalised and Pakistan was gradually moving towards development and sustainability by taking difficult decisions.
“Pakistan is emerging as a powerful country at international level as we are being praised for paving way for US-Afghan peace deal,” Mr Suri said.
Talking about inflation, he said that harsh days were over now because the country was heading toward economic stability while the Ehsaas Kafalat Programme would provide relief to the masses. “The PTI government has launched Kamiyab Jawan Programme worth Rs100 billion to provide business opportunities to the country’s youth.”
Talking about novel coronavirus outbreak in China, the deputy speaker said that the Pakistani nation stood with the Chinese people during the epidemic that had gripped the neighbouring country.
Replying to a question about agricultural development in Balochistan, Mr Suri said that the federal government had prepared a new policy to address the problem of water shortage in the green belt of the province.
