Country witnesses massive growth in last four & half years: PM

ISLAMABAD:Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi says the country has witnessed massive growth during the last four and half years.

In an interview with a private news channel, he said the instability in the form of Dharnas and the Panama case and its decision, created uncertainty in the country.

He said the government took effective measures and now the issues are under control.

He said if there had been continuity, the country would have progressed rapidly.

The Prime Minster vehemently opposed the suggestion about a presidential form of government.

He said presidential form of government, is not capable to steer the country out of the emerging issues and dangerous for its stability.

The Prime Minister said after the devolution of powers, the provinces ought to develop their capacity and show their performance. He said the provincial governments which fail to comply with their mandates, would meet failure at the end.

He said among all provinces, only Punjab has been performing well.

Shahid Khaqan Abbasi dispelled the suggestion to approach the International Monetary Fund, saying the country has other resources to tap for its financial needs.

About the load-shedding issue in the upcoming summer season, he maintained that the government has added about 10,400MW power in the national grid by enhancing the generation capacity.APP/AFP
