Prime Minister Imran Khan has on Monday said that the country is still lagging behind because politicians come into power to “steal money” instead of utilizing it for public service.
PM Imran held a meeting with Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s lawmakers following the ruling PTI’s loss in the Nowshera by-polls.
During the meeting, the premier said that the real aim behind politics is public service, however, politicians have been using it to “make money” instead of serving the masses. Criticizing the Opposition, he said that leaders of different parties have also spent money to mould things to their advantage.
He said we are left behind because power was used to steal money instead of public service.
The Prime Minister said we are taking measures to ensure transparency in every system.
