Chairman Pakistan Contractors Association (PCA), Kamal Nasir Khan, has revealed that he has offered Prime Minister Imran Khan to construct 50,000 housing units for Naya Pakistan Housing Scheme.
He made this remark while speaking at a local TV channel on Friday.
“Under Naya Pakistan Housing Program, PM Khan vowed to build 5 million houses in five years. We have approached them with an offer to build 50,000 units so that we can reduce at least 1 percent of the burden,” chairman PAC said on a private TV channel.
Kamal Nasir said the housing scheme was a welfare project which can change millions of lives and the association has decided to be a part of it.
He observed that the project involves delicacies of legislation and bureaucracy and wished for its speedy completion.
Chairman PCA said he wanted to construct these housing units in the suburbs of Lahore.
Since I hail from Lahore, I would prefer to be a part of the government’s housing program somewhere near the metropolitan city, in the first phase.We will then expand it to other cities including Faisalabad, Gujranwala, and Karachi.
He also announced that all the construction costs will be handled by the association.
We won’t take a penny from the government for this divine project. All we want is a piece of land with basic facilities [like electricity, gas, and water] so that we can get started.
Previously, an Egyptian billionaire Naguib Swarisi also offered to build 100,000 housing units for Prime Ministers’ scheme.
