Will continue to remind people about last decade’s plunder, says PM Imran Khan
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that he will continue to reiterate the plunder during the last decade so that people should not forget it.
He was addressing the ceremony of signing a Memorandum of Understanding between Pakistan and United Nations Office for Project Services and Sustainable Housing Solutions for financial assistance in Naya Pakistan Housing Program on Wednesday.
He said that a project would be launched to construct houses for fishermen in Gwadar. “There is a dearth of 12.5 million houses in the country. A majority of people do not have money to build their houses,” he said.
The prime minister said that the youth would construct new construction companies. “We will adopt one-window method in Naya Pakistan Housing Scheme,” he said.
He said that the housing project has great significance for running the economy.
PM Imran Khan said that the government would construct five million housing units in the next five years to cater the housing needs of low income and salaried class.
He said that signing of MoU with UNOPS will not only provide financial assistance but it will bring expertise to Pakistan. “In order to promote mortgage, the government has enacted foreclosure laws in the country.”
The prime minister said that 40 industries are directly related to the construction industry and Naya Pakistan Housing programme will boost all these industries. He said that local material and labour will be used in construction of these houses to boost the economy.
Speaking on the occasion, Minister for Housing and Works Tariq Bashir Cheema said that Naya Pakistan Housing program will not only build houses but also create jobs for public.
