PM Imran challenges to broadcast live coverage of foreign funding case hearings
Commenting on the much-hyped foreign funding case, Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday challenged for the case’s hearings to be broadcasted live on television.
Addressing journalists in South Waziristan, during his day-long visit to the district, the prime minister said the case should be heard in the presence of political parties’ leaders.
The premier further challenged that it was only the PTI that raised political funds.
“The country runs on remittances sent by overseas Pakistanis,” PM Imran said, adding that they also helped him with funds for Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital.
Speaking of the opposition’s foreign funding sources, he stated that “these parties [opposition] and I both know what foreign funding is”.
Many countries sent funds to the opposition during their tenure, he said, adding that “I can’t name them because of our relations with them [the countries].”
The Prime Minister said that each family in the tribal districts will be provided with health insurance card under which they will be able to get medical treatment worth seven hundred thousand rupees per year.
Imran Khan said the loans under the Kamyab Jawan Program are just the beginning and its scope will be further expanded. He said more funds will be poured into the program from next year so that more loans could be given to the people.
The Prime Minister said assistance will also be provided to the tribal people under the Ehsaas program.
On the occasion, the Prime Minister also announced the opening of 3G and 4 G facility in the area saying this is the requirement of the youth to catch up with the world.
