Prime Minister Imran Khan has summoned a session to review the performance of ministries.

According to the details, the session will be attended by ministers, assistants, advisers and the spokespersons in Centre and provinces.

Moreover, the Prime Minister will be briefed over the current economic indicators of the country besides discussing the political and financial situation.

During the meeting, the performance of different ministries will be reviewed; as well as deliberating upon the development projects for 2021 by the ministries.

The participants of the session will also decide a strategy to highlight the achievements of the ministries, sources added.

Back in December 2020, Prime Minister Imran Khan while speaking in a ceremony in Islamabad, said that the PTI government has to take its governance performance to much higher levels in the remaining time of its five-year tenure, telling his ministers that “the time for performance has arrived.”

“We will put pressure on ourselves to take our governance performance to much higher levels in our remaining two-and-a-quarter years,” the premier said.

“We no longer have an excuse that we’re new and are learning because most of us came into power for the first time. The time for performance has arrived,” he added.

“After all, the public has to decide after five years whether we made their lives better or not; whether we fulfilled the promises made to them or not,” he said, stressing that governance could not be delivered unless all ministries performed individually.

Imran Khan had also said that the devolution of power following the 18th Amendment had also created governance problems that needed to be rectified.

Citing an example, he said food security fell within the federal government’s domain but all the power had been delegated to provinces, with the effect that if one province refused to follow the Centre and devised its own policy, the resulting price differential of commodities like wheat distorted prices across the country.
