Pakistan out of the woods, good times ahead: PM Khan


PESHAWAR: Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan has said that Pakistan has passed the testing situation and good times are ahead, He was addressing the commercial launch of Rashakai Prioritized Special Economic Zone in Peshawar. He said, when the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) came into power, the country was not having money to pay off debts. “We inherited the biggest deficit in the country’s history.” Lack of funding from the friendly countries would have bankrupted the country, he added. The devaluation of the rupee resulted in inflation across the country and forced the government to take a fresh programme from the International Monetary Fund (IMF). “Thanks to God, the country has passed the testing times, good days are around the corner.” On coronavirus situation, PM Imran Khan said his government was being forced to slap lockdown, but he denied and imposed smart lockdown to contain the virus spread. The way Pakistan has fought and faced the pandemic is remarkable, he continued.
