Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Tuesday declared the government had “no other option” but to enforce the International Monetary Fund (IMF) programme.
He lamented that if they yearned to provide any donation in any sector, they had to go to the IMF, ‘which is a factor and a painful reality’.
He said the union administration never wished to disseminate the responsibility of fee hikes. In history, the PTI administration blatantly breached the consensus with the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
Meanwhile, the prime minister said that they had conceived an agenda to instantly restore all the federal government commodities’ facilities to solar power by April following year in order to cut a huge piece out of the country’s expensive fuel substance bill hovering around $27 billion.
Unveiling details, the prime minister said that the methods for modification to solar power should be fast-tracked as they had established April 2023 as the timeline for the commission of this plan.
Dealing with a solarisation meeting, the prime minister said under the plan, all the national government ministries, divisions, administrations and their offshoots in the regions would instantly change course to solar energy.
He declared it would be a prototype for the remainder of the regional administrations as the national administration would not make extra payments over the solarisation procedure.
The prime minister also exhorted all the pertinent governments and the stakeholders to finalize the required procedure by the end of April following year and meet the timeline which had been set.
“Consider it as our political, social, national and religious duty to implement it as soon as possible,” he opined.
