Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan castigated the ruling PML-N government for, what he claimed, its failure to earmark only Rs60 billion for farmers while Rs200 billion has already been spent so far on the Orange Line project.
“When a farmer saves up money, he spends it on his lands and doesn’t go and purchase flats in London,” he remarked while addressing a party rally in Bahawalpur, Punjab on Thursday.
The PTI chief said that the party would announce its policy on the welfare of farmers soon.
India and China have invested heavily to eradicate poverty, he added.
Imran said the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) government successfully planted 1 billion trees in the province which was a landmark achievement. “We grew a jungle 40 times bigger than Changa Manga,” he said.
“The coal power plants which have been built will deteriorate the environment further,” he added.
