Prime Minister Imran Khan has reiterated that Pakistan is still the cheapest country to live in, claiming that the skyrocketing inflation will subside within three to four months, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Imran Khan said this while addressing a ceremony in Mianwali on Saturday where he announced the second phase of the development package worth Rs27 billion for the city and inaugurated multiple infrastructure and environment-related projects.

The prime minister said "The prices of essential items have increased across the world. Pakistan is suffering from it too. But I promise that this phase will end in the upcoming three to four months." 

Imran Khan pointed out that even today Pakistan is one of the cheapest countries in the world. "I owe my post [of prime minister] to the people of Mianwali," he said and added "They trusted and stood by me when no one else did." 

"I will repay this debt by transforming Mianwali into a modern city. Let me promise you that by the time my government completes its five years, this city will transform into one of the most developed areas of the country." 

The prime minister said that this was his plan not just for Mianwali but also for Bhakkar, Rajanpur, Dera Ghazi Khan, Balochistan, and every area which was ignored by the previous governments. 

The prime minister inaugurated City Park at Old Cattle Mandi; the dualization of the first phase of Sargodha-Mianwali Road and a Miyawaki Forest at Namal Lake.

He also launched development work on the upgradation of Kalabagh-Shakardara Road and DHQ Hospital Mianwali; the construction of the Balkasar-Mianwali Road and a Wooded Land at Namal Lake.

The prime minister also visited Namal University where he addressed the students.
