ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan on Wednesday said that he would not give in to unreasonable pressure of the business community as it would be traitorous to his countrymen.
“If anyone believes that I would step back after countrywide strikes by the business and trading fraternity, they should that I would do no such thing,” he added.
While addressing an event organised by the Gujranwala Chamber of Commerce & Industry (GCCI), the premier said he did not campaign over religion grounds to win over people’s votes but had been more vocal about the state of Madina after winning the election and assuming office.
The premier also said that the important rules of the state of Madina included mercy, fairness, and justice, and saving the weak from oppression but at present, the country’s notorious thieves were being let off easy by availing air-conditioned rooms in the jails even after depriving the nation of billions. “Everyone knows how those who commit petty crimes are treated in jails,” he added.
