He said the PTI government has steered the country out of difficult times including corona and economic instability. Imran Khan said the whole world has acknowledged our strategy during the Covid pandemic.

He said the government has achieved record production of wheat, maize and rice besides record revenue generation through tax reforms.

The Prime Minister said Pakistan saw four hundred drone attacks from 2008 to 2018 but the past regimes could not even condemn these attacks because they have billions of dollars abroad and off-shore companies.

He said the opposition parties are busy in horse trading for the no-confidence vote.
