“Over 50 percent of Pakistanis were living below poverty line. We have to make Pakistan a welfare state. We have to serve the people as coming in power in not for our one personality,’ said Imran Khan.

Imran Khan went on to say the government will go to the International Monetary Fund after thorough deliberations, Radio Pakistan reported.
Electing the Chief Minister and his cabinet was his responsibility, therefore everything will be made on merit and everyone will be held accountable.
All ministers will be given certain targets and they have to arrive office sharp at 9:00 am.
In Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, we have to bring more reforms in local bodies besides improving education sector.
