Mirza Ikhtiyar Baig (Economist):
Construction of houses for poor people, revival of industry and creating job opportunities is PTI’s manifesto. Housing project is a mega project and many sectors are associated with this project. Housing project will revive industries and will facilitate the poor people of Pakistan to materialize the dream of their own shelter. We should give time to the new government to come out of economic crises. The issue must be handled with utmost care and maturity. The incumbent government is fully committed to take concrete steps to cope with current economic crises.
Humayun Iqbal Shami (Economist):
Naya Pakistan housing Program is an appreciable step of the government because we are in dire need of new houses to provide shelter to the poor people of Pakistan. The housing project would not only provide shelter to the poor but will also help in revival of the industry which is directly connected with the construction of houses. Success of any project depends on the transparency of the project. It is imperative to monitor the project carefully to ensure transparency.
Dr. Murtaza Mughal (President, Pakistan Economy Watch):
More than 40% of people in Pakistan are living below the poverty line and are deprived of basic necessities of life including shelter. This is a great initiative of the government to provide shelter to the people who cannot afford it. This is true representation of the people and it would motivate young entrepreneurs to start their business and participate in housing project. The incumbent government has vision to facilitate poor people of the country. Whoever looted and damaged the country deserve capital punishment. The naya Pakistan housing program will create business and job opportunities.
Kanwal shauzab (Leader, PTI):
Naya Pakistan housing program is a significant and relevant project in accordance with the needs and wishes of the people of Pakistan. The incumbent government is committed to take action against land mafia and provide shelter to the deserving poor people. The housing project will help in reviving the economy by engaging many industries and creating job and business opportunities. It is imperative to ensure transparency in order to give rights to the deserving one. The people who are living under the poverty line deserve a respectful living. A competent team is leading the project and special measures are taken to ensure the transparency.
Abida Raja (Leader, PTI):
Naya Pakistan Housing Program is a great blessing for the poor people who cannot afford to make a house at their own. Housing is a major issue in populous province Punjab and owning a house is a dream of a poor man. The housing project will not only help in materializing their dreams but also help in reviving the industry to retrieve the economy.
