ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan  on Tuesday  reiterated   that Pakistan is going to be a great state which would reflect Riyasat-i-Madina

In his address to the nation, Prime Minister vowed to nab the "thieves who plunged the country in debt badly." 

PM Imran Khan announced to make high-powered  commission to investigate  loans taken in last ten years.

He said: "I am constituting a high-powered enquiry commission with a one-point agenda: how  they accumulated the debt so much in 10 years"

Khan said  that the commission would  comprise of the high-profile representatives from the ISI (the Inter-services Intelligence), FIA (Federal Investigation Agency), IB (Intelligence Bureau), FBR (Federal Board of Revenue) and SECP (Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan).

Imran Khan said that after putting to rest the initial focus of the government to stabilise the economy, his attention would be more targeted towards bringing the ones to task who had caused the country to fall into such dire straits.

Under those lofty principles all were equal before the laws, and even the head of the state was fully answerable before the laws and no one hurled threats at the accountability process.

The Prime Minister said from the day first, his opponents were questioning the “Naya Pakistan” and said Riasat-e-Madina was not created in one day and it evolved after passing through a process and with passage of time expanded from Arab peninsula to other parts of the world.

“Imran does not have a switch.

Referring to the PTI Government’s first federal budget, the Premier said, "This is the budget which reflects Naya Pakistan." He  added: "Pakistan is stable now. "

Taking a jibe at previous governments, Prime Minister Imran Khan put the blame for economic woes of the country on Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N).

The Prime Minister expressed his wonder that those who had caused huge losses to the country had now gathered against his government.

He regretted that a ruckus had been created inside parliament by the opposition parties and warned that he would not bow before their blackmailing and pressure.

Imran khan revealed that they [Zardari and Nawaz] came to an agreement that each would rule for five years and "not say anything to each other".

Speaking on the   arrests of Hamza Shahbaz by NAB and MQM founder Altaf Hussain by London police, Prime Minister Imran said: "I am thankful to Allah, the big figures  are now in prison. No one could have even imagined."

A day earlier, former president Asif Ali Zardari was  arrested by the National Accountability Bureau.

PM Khan  said:"The judiciary is free today, and   this is the new Pakistan."
