SIALKOT, May 12 (APP):Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan on Sunday said Prime Minister Imran Khan had been striving for grant of rights to the deprived segments of the society.  

Addressing notebales here at Koobe Chak, she said the prime minister wanted supremacy of law and the Constitution in the country. He had waged a struggle for the creation of Naya Pakistan and introduction of new local government system would be the first step towards that. The Local Government Act 2019 would ensure resolution of the people’s problems at their doorstep, besides availability of resources at the grassroots level.

Firdous said under the new LG system, powers would be devolved to the grassroots level to resolve the problems of the people at their door step.

She said in the past rulers restricted power to their families but the new system would empower the common people as its fruits would be enjoyed at the village level as well.

Firdous said the dream of creation of State of Madina could not be realised without empowering the grassroots people. In the State of Medina, under-privileged classes were empowered and their welfare was ensured. The new LG system would empower the people and ensure their welfare.

She said when the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf came to power, the national economy was in a shambles. The economic policies of present government would bring a revolution with far reaching welfare impacts for the people, she added.

She said Imran Khan was fighting for the rights of 220 million people of Pakistan and not his own children. He was fighting against the status quo and he would win that war with the support of the people. 

She said the government was aware of the problems being faced by the public due to inflation.  The problems would be overcome soon, she added.
