He said Prime Minister Imran Khan announced incentives for the construction sector and the government would fulfill its promise to build five million houses by the time it would complete its term.

Commenting on the All Parties Conference of the opposition parties, Shibli Faraz said it will be a gathering of accused and losers which want to create law and order situation and chaos in the country.
