Former Prime Minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has stated that if his party regains power, he will have to make “unprecedented decisions” to steer the country out of the crisis.
“Now we have to think outside the box to govern the country like no one has ever done before.” “We must take steps that we have never taken before,” the ousted premier said on Tuesday at an economic seminar in Islamabad.
“I spoke to [former finance minister] Shaukat Tarin and discussed that we will have to come prepared this time,” Imran admitted of his administration’s inability to run the country when it took office in 2018.
According to the PTI leader, his party’s top priority will be to protect the vulnerable from inflation and the aftermath of devastating floods.
He stated that Pakistanis living abroad will be crucial in stabilizing the country’s economy. “We are developing a strategy to make it easier for overseas Pakistanis to invest in the country.”
Imran claimed that during his previous tenure, he was unable to solve many problems due to “political instability as opposition from the day one wanted to topple my government.”
He stated that he began two major projects, Ravi City and Bundal Island, both of which he claims have the potential to attract billions of dollars in foreign investment.
Unfortunately, the Sindh government revoked the NOC for the Bundal Island project, and the “builder mafia” obtained a stay order, effectively halting work on the Ravi City project for 11 months.
Imran attacked the current rulers, saying they did nothing to improve the lives of the people because their only goal is to get “relief in corruption cases.”
“They mocked me when I started the billion tree tsunami project… they made no long-term plans to protect the country from climate change.”
