ISLAMABAD - Prime Minister Imran Khan has said the people of Pakistan have mandated PTI to break status quo and to wage a decisive war against corrupt elements.
Chairing a meeting of PTI's parliamentary party in Islamabad on Monday, he said past rulers had adopted a royal and lavish lifestyle and plunged the country into the quagmire of debts.
He said half of the country's income is being spent on paying installments of loans taken by the previous governments.
He said a debt of 24,000 billion rupees was increased in just 10 years and he has formed a commission to investigate that and fix the responsibility.
Imran Khan said that his government faced the toughest situation in first ten months of power.
He said government's efforts have brought economic stability to the country.
The Prime Minister thanked friendly countries like Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, and China for helping Pakistan in difficult times.
Imran Khan advised the parliamentarians to actively play their role in the process to get the budget passed from National Assembly.
He regretted opposition's attempts to disrupt proceedings of the House during budget debate.
