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.
