Nobody has thought for giving houses to the poor: PM
March 18, 2021

ISLAMABAD (92 News) - Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan has said that nobody has thought for giving houses to the poor from 25 years.

While addressing the ceremony of distributing the residential flats and houses to the working class under the Workers Welfare Fund, the prime minister said that the housing project is a major achievement of the government as nobody has thought about the projects for 25 years. He said that Naya Pakistan is the name of a new though and a mindset, and the PTI led government is proving it.

"As incomes rise, the government will invest more in the housing sector. Instead of paying rent, a house can be built by paying installments, Imran Khan maintained and also praised his team for completing 25-year-old project.

"The housing project was a favour to the labour as it is their right to own a home, PM Khan said, adding that the project was initiated after the government has introduced a new law under which the banks are providing loans.

He continued that the PTI government has the vision to uplift the weak segment of society. "The people getting the houses will get a chance to clear their loans in the next 20 years, whereas, 1,500 flats will be allotted in the second phase," he announced.

PM Khan said that the project could not be completed if the banks do not take part in it. The State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) governor is performing his duties for dispatching loans for houses. He announced that the government will launch more housing schemes after getting its income improved. The government is making maximum efforts to provide houses to the salaried and working class.

The premier has distributed the residential flats and houses to the working class under the Workers Welfare Fund. The premier attended the ceremony of allotment of residential flats and houses among the working class and inaugurated the event by planting a sapling. Later, PM Khan unveiled the plaque at the ceremony and he was given a briefing regarding the housing project.

In his remarks, Special Assistant on Overseas Pakistanis Zulfikar Bukhari said in the first phase of this project completed by Workers Welfare Fund, 1008 flats and 500 houses have been constructed. These are being given to the workers on the basis of proprietary rights. He said in the next phase 1504 more units will be constructed. He said this project is the beginning of providing low cost and affordable houses to the weak segments of the society.
