PM urges bureaucrats to support govt
Imran Khan assures to protect civil servants from political pressure
ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday addressed civil servants in Islamabad, asking them to support the government through a "down cycle" over the next two years and to support its "outof-the-box" policy reforms.
The prime minister, in his address, highlighted various challenges that the nation was facing. "We don't have money to run our country; the majority of the population is young and looking for jobs; and the loans we took, instead of creating wealth so that we could repay them, have created projects that are running losses."
He also discussed statistics on out-of-school children, malnourished children, high mortality of women in labour, and infant deaths due to waterborne diseases.
