Gilgit (Web Desk): Prime Minister Imran Khan has said the government will work on fast track to grant provisional status to Gilgit-Baltistan.
Addressing the oath-taking ceremony of new cabinet member of Gilgit-Baltistan Assembly on Wednesday, the premier said that a committee will be constituted and it will work under timelines to grant provisional status to Gilgit-Baltistan, adding that the new government in GB will set new standards of governance that will improve the living standard of the people.
PM Imran took a jibe at former premier Nawaz Sharif and former president Asif Ali Zardari, calling them the corrupt mafia and said they do not care about the country. The mafia is just hatching conspiracies to save their looted wealth, the PM added.
PM Khan said former finance minister Ishaq Dar lied in his interview with BBC News’ show ‘HARDtalk’. If you want to see stress, you should have seen Ishaq Dar’s face yesterday, the premier mockingly added.
