Wrong decisions of past govts led to decline in industrial progress: PM

Islamabad (HRNW) Prime Minister Imran Khan said that the wrong decisions taken by previous governments led to environmental deterioration and decline in industrial progress over the years.

The prime minister arrived in Gilgit-Baltistan Wednesday to kick off the mega construction work on the Diamer-Bhasha dam. He was accompanied by CPEC Chairman and Special Assistant to PM on Information and Broadcasting, Asim Saleem Bajwa.

The prime minister was addressing a gathering in Chillas where he spoke about the reopening of tourism in the northern areas with SOPs.

“When our govt took over, we had a deficit of over Rs20 billion due to the decisions of the past governments,” he told attendees, adding that the less developed areas of the country cannot be ignored any further.

He said that the country’s leaders in the 90s, took the wrong decision to produce electricity from oil, adding that only those nations progress that take difficult decisions.

About the Diamer-Bhasha dam, PM Imran said that it was a historic decision to construct the project that will be the “third biggest dam in the history of Pakistan”.
