LAHORE: Prime Minister Imran Khan said elimination of corruption from Pakistan was the top priority of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government.

The prime minister met with Director General Anti-Corruption Ejaz Hussain Shah. The meeting was also attended by Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar.

Prime Minister Imran Khan said corruption had not only destroyed Pakistan’s economy but also institutions of the country. He added that the lives of ordinary Pakistanis had been impacted due to corruption.

The prime minister further said that progress could not take place in Pakistan with corruption.

Prime Minister Imran Khan directed that indiscriminate action against corrupt elements should be considered a mission, assuring the complete assistance of the government.

During recent addresses, Prime Minister Imran Khan has stressed that an NRO would not be given to opposition parties despite their efforts to save themselves from accountability.

At the PTI’s foundation day event, the prime minister said, “Let them do whatever they can, I won’t give them NRO.” 

‘I don’t look back at life, this is my principle’

PM Imran, later in a ceremony at the Atchison College, said that he never looks back at the life. He said that regrettably half of the Pakistanis can’t afford two meals a day.

“Quaid was not in need of politics but still he sturggled for his people for 40 years,” he said.

The premier said that a man becomes known not because of his wealth but how well he performs his duties. “World remember those who work for humanity.”
