He asked people to work together for the country’s progress rather than focusing personal gains. Pakistan was based on the basis of establishing an Islamic welfare state, and an Islamic state would never lower its head at any cost.

The Digital Media Development Program, a flagship initiative in line with Prime Minister Imran Khan’s vision, was launched by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting’s Digital Media Wing in collaboration with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) to focus on the development and growth of Pakistan’s digital media ecosystem.
Imran Khan claimed that previous rulers pushed citizens to bow their heads before foreign powers, but that the current government aims to make Pakistan a respectable and self-sufficient nation.
In response to the propaganda against the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI)-led government, Imran Khan stated that 70% of reports against the current government had been proven incorrect in the last three years. He stated that opponents should criticize the administration, but only if the criticism is founded on the facts.
The premier said that the media under the PTI-led administration is completely independent, and that no previous government had permitted freedom of speech.
