Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) nominee for Sindh governorship Imran Ismail on Sunday vowed to “set a new trend” during his time in the office.
He expressed these views while talking to the media in which he further said he does not plan to be staying at the Governor House, adding that he will only use the office of the governor.
Responding to a question, he remarked that the Governor House cannot be bulldozed. “We will open Governor House for the public but we have to see how it can be utilised. It can be used as an educational institute, university, or art gallery,” he explained.
He voiced his commitment to minimising the expenditures of Governor House as much as possible. “I will not be staying at one place but rather travelling across Sindh,” he said.
He said that the new PTI federal government would launch mega projects in Sindh province as promised by PTI chief Imran Khan.
PTI chief Imran Khan has the political will to resolve issues by strengthening national institutions besides empowering local government system, he said.
He said police reforms would be introduced to improve the performance of the department in the Sindh province.
He reiterated that PTI proved to be the biggest opposition party in Sindh, adding that the opposition leader in the Sindh Assembly will be from PTI.
He also shared that the name of the opposition leader has been finalised and it will be announced soon.
Furthermore, he said, “We will try our best to ensure that Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) will support us in the implementation of development projects. We will work alongside Mayor Karachi. We cannot ensure progress till the elimination of corruption.”
PTI Chairman Imran Khan has given a formal approval for his appointment as Sindh’s governor.
Currently, the post of Sindh governor lays vacant following resignation by Mohammad Zubair.
It is worth mentioning that he had also won the elections from Karachi’s PS-111 constituency for Sindh Assembly.
