ZIARAT: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday said that with Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth estimated at around 4% during the current fiscal (2020-21), the country had been steered out of economic hardships and was set to achieve further growth in the coming year.
“I have good news to share with you that the country is coming out of economic hardships. The GDP growth is estimated at around 4% and has been made public,” Imran Khan said while speaking to a gathering here at Quaid’s residency.
The Prime Minister regretted that the opposition parties, which have been claiming about the government’s failure for the last two and half years, were now disputing the GDP growth figure.
“In fact the opposition parties wanted the present government to fail in economic terms, as they feared that if the government succeeds, their politicking would end,” he remarked.
The Prime Minister said that, “Since the present government came to power, the opposition parties were giving deadlines for the end of government sometime in three months or by December 31 etc. But I am worried about the opposition that what will they do now?.”
He expressed his belief that the country will achieve further economic growth during the next fiscal year. “Pakistan will go further up [in economic terms] during our next government,” he maintained.
