Govt taking bold steps to improve power, agriculture sectors: power minister


HARIPUR: Federal Minister for Power Omar Ayub Khan here Tuesday said the government was taking revolutionary measures for the eradication of poverty and for bringing improvements in the power sector.

He said the past governments had left Pakistan in deep crises but the people of this country have found a true leader in Prime Minister Imran Khan who is honest, trustworthy, visionary, and with all the abilities to address all existing challenges faced by the country today.

The minister maintained that our government is taking revolutionary steps for the eradication of poverty and to develop the agriculture sector.
