PM Imran Khan addresses nation as PTI presents three-year performance – Press Release


Prime Minister Imran Khan is addressing the nation, to present his government’s performance over the last three years.

A ceremony is underway at the Convention Centre in Islamabad to unveil the report.

Welcoming the audience, he especially greeted the newly elected Azad Jammu and Kashmir government representatives.

He quipped: “I was looking at Faisal Javed Khan. He is so enthused always whenever he gets a mic, he never lets go of it, like in our jalsa days.”

The premier also lauded Sindh Governor Imran Ismail’s talent for producing PTI anthems, saying it may very well overshadow his performance as a governor. Ismail earlier sang “tabdeeli aayi re” in the event, besides humming a tune in the making for “mujhhe kyoon nikala”.

The prime minister shed light on the importance of the youth recognising that our prayer to God to put us on the path of blessings, not of ruin, is the path of the Holy Prophet (PBUH).

“If we want to be great, God has already laid out the path for us.”

The prime minister recalled how he was mocked in the party’s early days, but said that he continued to focus on one thing: how the Holy Prophet (PBUH) saw such hard times but remained resolute.

“We must never fear such times. Yes, this is a hard time (for Pakistan), but we must not panic.”

“The ups and downs in life prepare you (for greatness),” he said.

Addressing the youth, he said: “Don’t ever think that life is easy. If it is easy, that means you have no standing.”

“Whoever stands on the true path, has to face difficulties. All of Allah’s messengers faced troubles. And that is the path we believe in.

“But people want an easy way out and at the same time seek the path of blessings […] you must never cry over such times. 

“If you understand and analyse such things properly, you will see that the tough path is the path to your success,” he said.

The premier added: “No one has achieved success without failing. It is impossible for someone to just land on his feet.”

PM Imran Khan is expected to highlight the key achievements of his government marking a journey of stable economy, development and welfare projects, according to Radio Pakistan.

The report aims to give an insight into the efforts of each ministry and division in facilitating the common man in line with the vision of Naya Pakistan.

The performance report 2018-21 has been compiled by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting under the patronage of its head Chaudhry Fawad Hussain.

The 251-page report gives an outline of the achievements of 44 public bodies, including ministries, divisions and departments, through infographics and relevant facts and figures.
