PTI struggles to make Pakistan an Islamic welfare state

APP news agency reported that Punjab Minister for Labour and Human Resource Ansar Majeed Khan said the nation cannot afford any kind of anarchy, confrontation or lockdown in the country.

He said Prime Minister Imran Khan was utilising all-out resources to steer the economy out of crisis. “Conspiracies against the democracy tantamount to divide the nation as opposition is only interested in point scoring by promoting the politics of chaos and agitation,” he said.
