Some ministers spend more time in Kohisar Market than their offices: PM

Prime Minister Imran Khan has revealed that some of his ministers are spending more time in Kohisar Market in Islamabad than in their offices.

In a meeting with the PTI social media members on Saturday, PM Imran Khan said that positive criticism on social media is always welcome, adding “I’m always prepared for any untoward crisis.”

“However, I’m always ready for any situation,” the PM said, adding “There are certain elements involved in the negative propaganda against the government.”

“Every morning when I get up I check my mobile phone to find out a new crisis awaiting me,” PM Imran said and added “People should confirm before attacking the government.”

Visibly-perturbed PM said “Even if it’s not the opposition, it turns out to be one of our ministers whose reckless statement lands the government in hot waters.”

About the wheat crisis, whose report early in the day was submitted to the PM by the FIA in which the whole crisis was found out to be artificial, the PM said “I’ll not spare those responsible for the crisis no matter how powerful they are,” while adding that the government will publicise the report.

Alluding to the administrative negligence of some ministers, the PM said “There’re some ministers who’re spending more time in the Kohisar Market in Islamabad than their offices.”

Earlier in the day, Federal Investigative Agency submitted its detailed report as it was assigned by the federal government to probe the reasons that led to wheat crisis in Pakistan.

The report that was promptly shared with the federating units on the PM Imran’s directives revealed there was no wheat crisis in the country as it was artificially created. The report also suggested that despite there is still as much provision as 2.1 million metric tons of wheat in Pakistan, “It was maladministration that caused the food crisis in the country.”
