She said that the elimination of corruption was imperative for good governance and a strong economy. “The PTI government has brought a revolution in education, health, agriculture, social and youth sectors during the last five years, whereas the new reforms and projects would bring even more positive changes in the lifestyle of Pakistani’s in by 2023,” said Sumbul.

“The KP government has taken Rs36 billion Net Hydel Profit’s arrears and once it is received, the majority’s of KP financial issues would be addressed,” he said while appreciating special projects and reforms for the uplift of agriculture, clean water, horticulture and livestock that he said would largely benefit the rural population.

He urged the media to avoid speculations and hype regarding the 100 days plan.

Majeed opined that fake accounts worth Rs 375 billion have been found which is a big success in a short span of time. “PM Imran Khan has also made successful visits of Saudi Arabia, China and Malaysia and its positive effects have now started visible,” he added.

“The performance of PTI is much better than previous governments of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and our prime minister has handled all issues in line with the aspirations of the people,” he stated.

A local named Nazim Bhadar Khan said that the government should be given full credit for launching the mega ‘Naya Pakistan Housing Scheme’ in the country, besides taking concrete measures for strengthening the governance system and eliminating corruption.

He also lauded PM Imran Khan’s resolve to promote tourism, agriculture and fisheries as it would bring positive changes in the lives of ordinary people.
