LAHORE (92 News) – Prime Minister Imran Khan said that the opposition had formed the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) union to get an NRO.

Addressing a ceremony after launching a housing project under Punjab Peri Urban Low Housing scheme at Raiwind on Thursday, he said that the powerful community had occupied the country.

He said that no one had ever thought of giving houses to the common man. "In the past, state lands were occupied. The former rulers are not ready to be held accountable. We will have to make the powerful subservient to the law," he maintained.

The prime minister said that the PTI government was focusing on the housing sector to achieve higher growth and provide job opportunities to the people. "We have given incentives to the construction industry and there is a record sale of cement. The impact of this boom in construction industry will soon be visible on the overall economy," he added.

He said that there is also a plan to convert slums into such facilities where people have access to all basic amenities including electricity, gas and sewerage. "The government is taking steps to uplift the agriculture sector. There is record production of wheat, rice and maize. It happened because we ensured that the farmers get better price of their produce. The agriculture sector will be transformed through the introduction of new techniques and technology," he said.
