“We will build 100 km roads, two degree colleges and a state of the art sports complex.”
In addition to this grid stations will be built to overcome the power outage. Electricity will also be generated through solar power, the premier said, adding that, small dams will be built to overcome the water shortage.
PM requested to the people of the tribal areas to remain patient as, the country was going through a tough economic situation, and “facing shortage of funds.”
Rs 6000 billion debt has jumped to Rs trillion in 2018. Our entire tax collected is Rs 4500 billion, Rs 2000 billion is spent on paying interest of debts.
“This country is rich, we will uplift it. We are collecting funds. You will see a change in Ramazan as soon as the funds start pouring in.”
