‘We made the biggest mistake 74 years ago,’ states PM Imran Khan
Prime Minister Imran Khan launched his government’s much-anticipated Kamyab Pakistan Program (KPP) on Monday, under which 3.7 million people would get soft loans totalling Rs1.4 trillion.
“The Medina state’s was the most successful model in world history,” the prime minister asserted in an inauguration event in Islamabad, adding that our country would progress if it adheres to the Medina state’s ideals.
Prime Minister Khan stated that such a program should have begun 74 years ago.
Emphasizing the importance of focusing on public welfare in order to reduce poverty in the country, Imran Khan stated “we made the biggest mistake 74 years ago. We thought we should first collect revenue and then the country would prosper. This was a wrong decision.”
For a better understanding of Kamyab Pakistan Program, the Ministry of Finance tweeted a video on their Twitter handle.
The Kamyab Kisan program provides interest-free loans to farmers; the Sasta Ghar scheme provides financing for housing unit construction; the Kamyab Karobar programme provides financing of up to Rs 500,000 for business establishment, and the Kamyab Kisan programme provides skilled-based scholarships to youth. Totalling the programme is being divided into five components.
The KPP will also be connected to the Sehat Insaf Card.
