On completion of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) three years in government, Minister of State for Information and Broadcasting Farrukh Habib on Wednesday cherished Prime Minister Imran Khan’s vision enabling fast transformation of Pakistan into a welfare state on pattern of Medina.

“Pakistan is on track of becoming a Medina like welfare state under the leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan,” he said in a news statement while taking pride of the initiatives like Panahgahs (Shelter Homes) and Langar Khany (Food Centres).

He said it was first time in the history of Pakistan that the government was taking ownership of poor and needy by operating shelter homes and food centres across the country. Downtrodden and less privileged segments of the society were being steered out of poverty through Ehsaas programme like projects.

Farrukh said the Ehsaas Programme’s financial volume had been increased to Rs 260 billion so that maximum number of poor people could reap its benefits.

Highlighting a number of achievements made by the PTI government in different sectors during the last three years, he said the country was on the path of development and prosperity due to prudent policies and wise decision of the Prime Minister.

People were bearing fruits of relentless efforts made by Prime Minister Imran Khan and his team for welfare and betterment of the society, he added.

As regards to achievements made on economic front, he said the Gross Domestic Product has been registering growth for the last couple of years due to efforts of the Prime Minister’s economic team.
