PM Imran Declares Pension A Bigger Challenge Than Circular Debt

Prime Minister Imran Khan has declared the issue of pension a bigger challenge than the circular debt and pledged to address it in an organized manner.

During a cabinet meeting held in Islamabad yesterday, PM Imran said that the government has to allocate Rs. 470 billion annually for the pensions of former government employees. It is nearly equal to Rs. 500 billion which the government earmarks annually for the salaries of the existing employees.

He said that past governments were reluctant to take unpopular measures for reviving the economy, adding that the issue will be resolved even if the government has to hire top consultants from all over the world.

We will resolve the pensions issue as the country cannot withstand this situation.
