QUETTA: Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif decla­red that if Pakistan did not take “hard decisions”, the country would have to knock on the doors of the IMF.

In a ceremony of an agreement for providing solar power facilities in Balo­c­h­istan, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif said that: “If we do not introduce reforms and take hard decisions, we will have to approach the IMF again after three years when the new loan programme will have concluded and it will be a shame if we again have to seek the IMF help. We have to get the new IMF progra­mme during the current month and then together we will work hard day and night to solve our problems.”

During the ceremony at which an agreement was signed for providing solar power facility to agriculture tube wells in Balo­c­h­istan, the PM said that he remained in constant touch with the leadership of the province as well as army, adding that Balochistan would be the biggest beneficiary after terrorism was rooted out of the province.

He also said a 10 percent quota had been earmarked for the students of Balochistan, who would be sent to China at government’s expense for latest professional training in the agriculture sector. Similarly, a 10pc quota has been reserved for the students of Balochistan to get training in the field of Information Techno­logy in Chinese technology company Huawei.

Moreover, talking to delegations of the three parties, he said PML-N believes in public service and the party’s elected representatives should focus their attention on the welfare of people.
