Victims’ welfare of undergoing war is government’s responsibility: PM
Islamabad: Following a Federal Cabinet meeting chaired by Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, an announcement regarding a proposed policy ensuring provision of the academic and employment opportunities to the children of those who died in various terror-linked incidents across the country made public on Thursday.
After almost four months of time span, the Premier convened the cabinet meeting to formulate new strategies and improve the existing ones to counter wide range of countrywide issues faced by the country, particularly the ruling party itself. The meeting mainly focused issues pertaining to the implementation of National Action Plan (NAP), China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), probe of Panama papers’ leaks, and growing waves of fresh violence in Indian Occupied Kashmir.
Members of the federal cabinet and Prime Minister Nawaz asserted that the welfare of victims of undergoing war against terrorism in the country was government’s responsibility.
Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif ordered to conclude a policy ensuring provision of academic and employment opportunities to the children of the terror victims.
He also asked to prepare a feasibility report regarding the establishment of a National Endowment Fund for concerned matter.
The meeting also concluded that all major projects including Gwadar Port Project, social and economic development programs, energy and infrastructure development projects would be completed at the earliest.
Referring to the never-ending energy crisis in the country, the prime minister said, had the valuable coal resources were utilised previously by the past governments in Pakistan, the situation would have been different by now and instead of going through an energy crisis, we would have been exporting energy today.
Top decision makers of the Pakistan Muslim League–Nawaz government also gave a detailed briefing to the premier on the CPEC project.
