PM breaks ground for low-cost housing project in Nowshera

PESHAWAR: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday performed the groundbreaking of Jalozai Housing Scheme for low income groups in Nowshera.

A total of 1320 apartments will be constructed in eighteen months under this project. The apartments will be distributed through balloting among people having income up to Rs40,000 per month.

Speaking on the occasion, Prime Minister Imran Khan said Naya Pakistan Housing Program has been launched across the country so that the under privileged segments of the society including labourers and workers could also own their houses.

The prime minister said the government is constructing houses and flats on public land to provide low cost units to the people. For this scheme, they have registered the people and are providing a subsidy of Rs300,000 on each housing unit. He said banks are providing loans on easy installments so that the people could build their own houses.

PMS Imran Khan said compassion for the poor as well as rule of law was the basic philosophy of the State of Madina, the foundation of which was laid by our Holy Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him).

He said our aim is to provide protection to the poor segments of the society. He pointed out that Khyber Pakhtunkhwa is the first province which has provided health cards to each household under which they can get medical treatment worth Rs1 million annually. He said this will trigger a revolution in the health sector and encourage the private sector to establish hospitals and health care facilities.

The Prime Minister also expressed the commitment to further widen the network of Panagahs and the ‘Koi Bhooka Na Soi’ free food scheme. PM Imran Khan said mafias are present in every sector including in sugar industry which increased the prices of the commodity to pocket more money. He said our struggle is to bring the powerful people under the ambit of law.
