In an exclusive interview with TRT World, the Prime Minister said that polls will be held after fifteen months. “Government is taking short-term measures to decease poverty, unemployment and inflation in the country. If people voted PML-N to power, his party will start long-term agenda to put the country on path of prosperity and development.”
“Government is offering subsidy on different items to facilitate downtrodden and marginalized segments of society, and those who are living below poverty line,” he added.
Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has also stressed the need to transform Pak-Turk fraternal ties into bilateral strategic economic partnership to benefit the people of two countries. “Turkey can help Pakistan in promotion of commerce, e-commerce, and agriculture.

“I have proposed the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to include Turkey in multibillion dollar CPEC project. Turning the CPEC into a trilateral project with Pakistan, Turkey and China would be beneficial for the region,” he said.
