Prime Minister Imran Khan has stated that legislation relating to the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) is needed for Pakistan and that no amnesty or concession will be given to opposition parties in return for legislation in the national interest.
He told his party’s lawmakers that the government was correcting past mistakes while the opposition used the parliamentary forum to save its politics. He said that the opposition had tried to obstruct every law. He said the opposition would have a hard time and the government would not blackmail them.
The prime minister directs lawmakers to give a hard time to the opposition and says that they will not be blackmailed. He said the opposition demanded an amnesty that would not be given at any cost. He said PTI would not back down from its manifesto.
Khan said the government would pass all bills from sitting with Parliament if the opposition did not extend cooperation in this matter.
Meanwhile, the prime minister said while chairing the weekly meeting of the National Coordinating Committee (NCC) for Housing, Construction and Development that the construction of the construction sector could play a key role in minimizing the impact of the pandemic on the national economy through job creation.
He said the government provided all the facilities possible for the development of the construction sector and urged the business community to take full advantage of the opportunity by investing.
The meeting reviewed in detail the progress made by the government in the construction sector together with the announced incentives for promotion. Thirteen representatives from the Association of Builders and Developers of Pakistan (ABAD) at the meeting promised to start various projects in the next three to four months, which will generate economic activity of Rp1,370 billion. Projects include the construction of around 100,000 housing units.
