The government of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf today completed its first year in power under the leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan.
During this period, the government took a number of steps for the development of different sectors, despite innumerable challenges.
Under the vision of Imran Khan, the government successfully put the country’s economy on the right track, bringing reforms in Federal Board of Revenue, acquiring economic assistance from friendly countries, like Saudi Arabia, UAE and China besides successfully negotiating a package with IMF.
At the diplomatic front, the government succeeded in restoring the dignity of Pakistan in the comity of nations.
Prime Minister Imran Khan’s successful visit to the United States, opening of Kartarpur Corridor and Pakistan’s befitting response to Indian ceasefire violations in the wake of Pulwama Attack are examples of PTI government’s prudent foreign policy.
Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting Dr. Firdous Ashiq Awan will, at a meeting at the Prime Minister’s office today, disclose government’s performance in different sectors during the past one year.
At the start of her address, Firdous Ashiq Awan said that the day would be dedicated to the people of occupied Kashmir.
She said the premier’s address to the nation that was scheduled for today had been postponed as the government’s “full-time focus” was on Kashmir.
“In the interest of the greater cause of Kashmir, we have put aside our political engagements and decided to take the national narrative forward.”
“The greatest achievement of the government in the past year is that we believe in the right of freedom of expression and speech.”
She insisted that Prime Minister Imran Khan had not tried to curb the media at any level or at any forum, whether at the party level or government level.
“He did not communicate that the media be maligned or that the media’s fundamental rights be taken, at any forum or through any personal action.”
