Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday (March 28) Addressing an international housing conference in Islamabad said that government will launch major project of 5 million houses next month. “A major housing project will be launched next month to provide five million housing units to the low income segments of the society. Constructing five million houses is a cumbersome task but once initiated the number of houses to be constructed will be increased every year,” the premier said.
“The World Bank has itself decided to support the housing project,” PM Imran said. “Positive response has also been received from overseas Pakistanis besides Chinese and Malaysian companies for the project,” he further said. “People in Pakistan pay less tax and more charity because they do not trust the governments,” the premie added.
While talking about enraochments across the country he said “”Such a system has been created that official institutions are hiding their land from the government.” “We will imprison those who steal official land and are drafting laws to declare encroachment a crime,” he asserted. “The government also plans to establish a land bank to retrieve land from land grabbers and also the dead capital of government departments. Land worth Rs500 billion has so far been recovered from the land grabbers,” he said and clarified that the houses of the poor people will not be demolished under this campaign.
