ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Sunday directed leaders of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) to make profligacy of former rulers public.
“Rulers of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) should be dealt with iron hand,” he said while chairing a meeting of PTI leaders in Islamabad.
Naeem-ul-Haq, Ali Zaidi, Asad Umer, Aleem Khan, Usman Dar, Shibli Faraz, Shafqat Mehmood, Iftikhar Durrani, Khusro Bakhtiar, Ali Ameen Gandapur, Faisal Javed and Shehzad Waseem were also present among others on this occasion.
Sources said the meeting discussed the government strategy and priorities, distribution of party tickets for by-polls and the 100-day plan. The PM reportedly took crucial decisions following briefings by the party leaders.
He issued several directives including giving media access to the information of luxurious vehicles used by ex-rulers. He asked the PTI leaders to highlight PTI’s manifesto and its implementation.
The meeting decided to devise a strategy to highlight the important decisions of the PTI government, including noticeable reduction in government expenditures, abolition of the discretionary powers of the prime minister, and election of a middle class representative as the Punjab chief minister.
Imran also directed to run effective campaign for dam fund locally, internationally and on social media as well.
The meeting decided that all decisions will be taken with consensus by taking the parliament into confidence.
Briefings will also be held on economic distress caused by the previous government, especially in energy and power sectors.
