Not by making roads, Imran says, nations are made via public investment
LAHORE: In a clear message to the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) in the centre, Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf Imran Khan suggested the government on Saturday that instead of making roads and bridges, it should invest in public services, such as education and health because great nations in the world were too made through public investment.
Sharing his views with students at the National University of Modern Language (NUML) Khan said, “Nations are not made by making roads and bridges. They are made through public investment.”
“Some 25 million children are out of schools and our leaders are making schemes like Orange Line,” said Khan.
He even condemned academic institutes and termed them “money-making shops”.
Time and again, the PTI Chairman and his party members continued to criticised the federal government’s heavy investments on bus and train projects when, according to them, the amount could be well utilised for the well being and progress of local people across Pakistan.
