Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has approved a development grant of Rs 50 crore for every member of the national and provincial assemblies to meet the development goals. Local media has informed about this on Thursday. The amount was approved during a meeting of the PTI and coalition parties’ parliamentary party, which was chaired by the chief in Islamabad.
The meeting discussed a range of issues including opposition agitation, Senate elections, Broadsheet scam, Karachi Parivartan Yojana, a recent incident of sabotage in a Hindu temple in Karak and the return of PTI leader Jahangir Tareen in the party’s decision making process.
Addressing the MPs, Imran said that the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) tried to bring people to the streets, but people are not with them. “They wanted to trap us in the Election Commission, but now they are stuck,” he said, adding that the PDM has almost disappeared.
He said that there is no problem for the opposition government. He said that a commission has been formed on the broadsheet issue. Surrey Palace and Hoodabia Paper Mills case will also be thoroughly investigated.
PM Imran Khan said that the opposition is playing a game of protecting its interests. Khan said that the opposition wanted to create problems for the government through the foreign funding case being heard by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), but the opposition plunged itself into the ditch dug for us.
