Ties with military ‘ideal’: PM Khan


On Thursday, Prime Minister Imran Khan said his ties with the military establishment were “exemplary”.

During an interview, PM Khan said he did not think about extending General Bajwa’s tenure further, adding that November was far off.

The premier stated that the coming three months were “very important” for the PTI government and the country in general.

Highlighting the loopholes of his government, PM Khan said that the biggest failure was the lack of accountability.

The premier mentioned that despite all the evidence against the Opposition, they managed to escape accountability.

“We have volumes of proof against the corrupt, but still they manage to escape convictions,” Khan added.

He said if the Opposition wished to bring a motion of no confidence against his government, they were free to do so, adding that he never felt threatened by “corrupt parties.”

Shedding light on the recently-held local bodies elections in the PTI-ruled Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Khan said the PTI suffered because of the defeat in the polls.

However, he refused to accept the fact that his government had lost support but said that “internal rifts” led to the defeat.

The premier reiterated that the party’s vote bank had not decreased.

Shedding light on the spiking inflation, he said the government needed to control inflation in the next three months.

Khan was of the view that along with the allies, the government would complete its mandated five-year tenure.

Separately, the premier chaired a meeting to review the Central Business District and Ravi Urban Development projects, where he pressed the need for urban development.

The premier reiterated that urban development was the top priority of his government. He directed all relevant authorities to expedite work to ensure speedy completion of projects.

PM Khan said that his government used unused government land and turned it into valuable assets.
