After successful execution of the billion tree project, setting a new history, Imran Khan is all set to work on building 5 million housing units.
PTI Chief Imran Khan said that Pakistan is fortunate to have a demand of 12 million houses which the West lacked, hence a model of economic revival through affordable houses is applicable in the existing state of the country.
In accordance with the policy prepared by HBFC (House Building Finance Corporation) Chairman Zaigham Rizvi, PTI aims at constructing 5 million housing units in Pakistan, that will not only provide affordable residency to the people but also prove to be imperative in energizing the economic activity in the country and curb the unemployment challenge.
Khan said that Pakistan is the second youngest country in the world but we lack the capacity to accommodate them. As a result, either they’re leaving the country or are getting involved in unsocial activities. The energetic youth, which is a determining factor in a country’s progress, has rather become a burden for Pakistan.
“Pakistan’s biggest problem is unemployment. Pakistan has the second largest youth population after Yemen. Unemployed youth either leave the country to find employment elsewhere and those who are unable to leave get involved in unsocial activities. The youth that could have been a boon for the country has become a burden’’ – said Imran Khan talking about PTI’s policy at ABAD ( Association of Builders and Developers)
He said that the target isn’t easily achievable, but they are challenging themselves to its success. He added that it’s an arduous task like the billion tree project. Initially, no one believed it was possible but after a prolonged fight with timber mafia and 10 brave forest guards embracing martyrdom in the process, they have made it a huge success that is receiving appreciation.
Imran Khan hoping an immense spillover effect on over 1oo industries that will provide inputs in one way or another with this project.
