Prime Minister PM Imran Khan on Friday vowed to visit the families of slain coal miners of Machh, to express solidarity with them after they bury their loved ones.

According to the details, Imran Khan while addressing the inauguration ceremony of Technology Park in Islamabad, said “If the bereaved families bury the slain miners today, I will go to Quetta today.”

He said all of their demands had been met as of Thursday but the Hazara mourners were insisting on his visit to Quetta as a condition for the burial of the victims, which, he said, is uncalled for.

“One of their demands is that they will bury the dead after the prime minister comes [to Quetta],” the PM said.

PM Khan during his address also said that the establishment of STZs will generate employment in the country, whereas, overseas Pakistanis could also get benefits of the STZ authority.

He said that the government will provide maximum assistance to resolve issues being faced by the special technology zones authority.

PM Imran Khan earlier chaired the first session of the Special Technology Zones Authority (STZA) of which the Prime Minister is himself heading its board of governors.

During the session, the authority approved the plan for laying a network of technology zones across the country.
