PM Khan launched PTI’s ambitious flagship Naya Pakistan Housing Programme’ on Wednesday, which is aimed at building five million low-cost and affordable housing units across the country, fulfilling one of the ‘cornerstones’ of his party’s election manifesto.
Addressing the launching ceremony at the PM Office, he announced that the government would provide the land, facilitate and remove bottlenecks and work under public-private partnership to construct housing units with all basic amenities.
“We want to build houses for those who ordinarily do not even dream of owning a house, as they fall in low-income group and barely manage to find a shelter,” Imran Khan said.
He said the data of federal or provincial lands was being collected and registered by a land bank so that the government could provide land for the housing programme to be undertaken by the private sector.
Vowing to personally supervise the project, the PM announced setting up of a Naya Pakistan Housing Authority in 90 days. Meanwhile the 17-member Housing Task Force would oversee the housing programme, he added.
