Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Wednesday assured that the federal cabinet would work to find a solution for unemployment and rising inflation in the country.
A day after the federal ministers and three advisers took oath of their offices, the prime minister chaired his maiden cabinet meeting during which the ministers were briefed regarding the economic condition, energy and law and order situation in Pakistan.
Addressing the members after the meeting, PM Shehbaz said that the current cabinet had experienced members who had offered great sacrifices in the past.
“I want to thank the leadership [of all coalition parties] for giving you [cabinet members] this responsibility,” he said, recommending they all work hard.
“We have to struggle with challenges like poverty, unemployment and inflation as the previous government failed miserably in its fight against hardships,” the premier stressed.
Touching on provincial issues, the premier said that Balochistan’s problems needed to be recognized. “We need to pay full attention to the problems of the Baloch people and other provinces,” he asserted.
The premier went on to say that the goal of the coalition government was to serve the 220 million people of Pakistan, keeping all personal likes and dislikes out of the picture.
“The only way to move forward is hard work, hard work and hard work,” he said.
