Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday performed the groundbreaking of the Jalozai Housing Scheme for the low-income groups in Nowshera.

A total of 1,320 apartments will be constructed in 18 months under this project. The apartments will be distributed through balloting among people having income up to Rs40,000 per month.

Speaking on the occasion, Prime Minister Imran Khan said that the Naya Pakistan Housing Program has been launched across the country so that the under-privileged segments of the society, including labourers and workers, could also own their houses.

The PM said that the government is constructing houses and flats on the government land to provide low-cost units to the people. “For this scheme, we have announced a subsidy of Rs300,000 on each housing unit,” he added.

He said that the banks are also providing loans in easy installments so that the people could build their own houses.
According to the PM, the PTI government’s aim is to provide protection to the poor segments of society.

He pointed out that Khyber Pakhtunkhwa was the first province to provide health cards to each household. He said this will trigger a revolution in the health sector and encourage the private sector to establish hospitals and health care facilities.
The Prime Minister also expressed the commitment to further widen the network of Panagahs and that of ‘Koi Bhooka Na Soi Scheme’.

Imran Khan said there are mafias in every sector, including in the sugar industry. “These mafias increase the prices of the basic commodities to pocket more money,” he said, vowing that the government will bring the powerful people under the ambit of the law.
