The prime minister said that Pakistan’s biggest issue is corruption, which kept people at bay from making any investments.

Imran earlier arrived in Karachi for a daylong visit during, which he held important meetings with different political representatives from Sindh.

The prime minister said the federal government was conscious of the basic challenges faced by the residents of Karachi and was fully committed to address them on a long-term basis.

Talking to a Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) delegation, led by Federal Minister Dr Khalid Maqbool Siddiqui and comprising Mayor Karachi Wasim Akhter, Nasreen Jalil, Amin ul Haq, Faisal Sabzwari and others, he said a pragmatic approach was needed to resolve the mega city’s problems.

Minister for Planning Khusro Bakhtiar, Minister for Water Resources Faisal Vawda, Minister for Parliamentary Affairs Azam Swati and former Finance Minister Asad Umer were also present on the occasion.

The prime minister said the country’s commercial hub could not be ignored and the federal government would ensure that its potential was fully explored.

The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government stood by its commitment and would help resolve the issues of water scarcity, inadequate waste management, poor transportation and others for good, he added.

Imran Khan said quality life, security and proper means of livelihood were the basic rights of every citizen that could be materialised through meaningful efforts along with coordination among all the stakeholders.

Central parts are the route from Lyon to Moscow in the north and from Milan to Constanţa in the south. The southern route would link Central Europe with the Black Sea area and
