Prime Minister Imran Khan has reiterated that Pakistan is still the cheapest country to live in, claiming that the skyrocketing inflation will subside within three to four months.
Welfare projects initiated by the government were intended at offering maximum assistance to the poor, said Prime Minister Imran Khan. Pakistan is the cheapest country in the world, he declared, saying inflation will come down after winter.
While speaking the initiation ceremony of the Micro Health Insurance Programme under the Kamyab Pakistan Programme at the Governor’s House, PM said, “We have launched welfare projects aimed at providing maximum relief to the poor and making the country a true Islamic welfare state.”
Imran Khan further stated that he never said to build Pakistan an Asian Tiger or convert Lahore into Paris, adding that his drive was to make Pakistan a well-being state. Pakistan is the cheapest country in the world, he declared, saying inflation will come down after winter.
Besides this, the prime minister appreciated the performance of NCOC and said the country had efficiently battled the coronavirus epidemic that made havoc in the world, including India, adding the epidemic had adversely influenced the supply food chain in the world and regional countries that affected price hike, inflation, and increased prices of gas, petroleum, and food commodities in Pakistan.
Moreover, the reforms initiatives, development projects, and devoted party management have resulted in an unparalleled two-thirds mainstream of PTI in the 2018 election in the province, he told the ceremony.
Regardless of running an alliance government in the course of 2013-18 in KP, he informed 30 percent of health insurance had been given to people. He acknowledged the KP government for covering free health insurance to 100 per cent of the population.
“Free health insurance cards were a great blessing for poor people and low-income groups,” he said. He further conveyed to the ceremony that worldwide free health coverage in KP was extraordinary and such services were not accessible in the developed countries.
