ISLAMABAD - The Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan shared on Monday the statistics of 90% of state-owned land in KP, Punjab & federal areas & the rest houses and official residences built on that land.
PM informed via Twitter and stated, “I have just got figures of 90% of state-owned land in KP, Punjab & federal areas & rest houses/official residences built on this land.”
“The figures are startling: 34,459 kanals are rural & 17,035 kanals are urban. Just the urban land with buildings is worth over Rs.300 billion,” Khan added.
In a second tweet, linked with the first one, PM further wrote, “So a country that has to borrow money to pay interest on its loans (burdening our future generations) – & daily interest payment is Rs 5 b – is sitting on huge amounts of dead capital (just 90% of urban holdings is worth Rs 300b) in the form of this govt-owned land with buildings.”
