System overhaul tedious, takes time: PM Imran Khan

LAHORE: Prime Minister Imran Khan has said changing the system is a hard task, and it takes time to accomplish that task in the face of status quo forces resisting all such efforts. However, he assured that the country was heading in the right direction.

Addressing the foundation-laying ceremony of the LDA City Naya Pakistan Housing Project here, he said the country was faced with a defining moment, though the ‘political mafias’ were trying to maintain the status quo. He called upon the country to “transform itself” if it was to meet the challenges of the 21st Century. He said the status quo did not want Pakistan to change for the better. He said that over the years, the country adopted a system where illegal gratification to get something accomplished had become a norm.

Replying to his critics who question his government’s intention to establish a state in Pakistan similar to Riyasat-e-Madina, he said a war was continuing for implementation of the same law for the poor and rich. He regretted that political mafias were resisting the law and creating hurdles in the way of turning the country into a Riyasat-e-Madina like state. However, he warned that all the mafias would be dealt with sternly and they would be brought to book. He promised that all these mafias would be eliminated with the help of masses and society would be liberated from their influence and negative impact.
