Previous govts add to poverty only, says Zartaj Gul

ISLAMABAD: Minister of State for Climate Change Zartaj Gull Saturday has said the previous governments of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) have given nothing to masses except poverty.
The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government was aiming to turn the country into a welfare state and improving the lot of the poor under the leadership of Prime minister Imran Khan, she said while speaking to private news channel.
She criticized that PML-N government had failed to deliver due to its wrong policies and no project was proved beneficial to the people in Punjab.
To a question, she said that Chief Minister Punjab Muhammad Usman Buzdar was a bold and confident and he would perform better than previous government.
Replying another question, minister said that the PTI government was availing the IMF package due to 10 years long wrong policies of the previous governments of PML-N and PPP.
She said the elements involved in the corruption cases are behind the bars due to strong working of the institutions.
She said due to electricity generated at high cost by the expensive power projects commissioned by the previous regime, the incumbent government was facing a loss.
The minister said whenever the present government took action against the corrupt, the opposition started making hue and cry.
She said the Imran Khan government realizing its manifesto had initiated different development projects of public welfare and economic development during a short period of time.
She said these programs would not only help the state provide education, health, employment and other basic needs to the poor but also ensure the well coordinated use of government resources for public welfare.
