ISLAMABAD: Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan Monday said JUI-F chief Fazlur Rehman’s open admission that he had come to remove the democratically elected government of PTI amounted to revolt.

Addressing the oath-taking ceremony of the Federation of Realtors of Pakistan here, she said Fazl should now make a new song of ‘Maulana Ja Raha Hay (Maulana is on the way out). She said some elements trying to hoodwink the masses would fail in their negative tactics. She said the government under the leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan was striving to fulfill its promises made with the people. She advised the opposition to wait for 2023 elections instead of trying to create anarchy. She said a mafia used money in the hoarding of edibles and created an artificial crisis in the country.

Awan said the government was aware of the importance of the real estate sector in the country’s development and was taking multiple initiatives to resolve its problems. She said over 50,000 people were attached to the real estate sector and protection of their jobs was a priority of the government. She said the government, under the ''ease of doing business initiative” had introduced the one-window operation system and digitalization of the system was being carried out to ensure transparency in dealings and transactions.

The SAPM said Construction Industry Development Board was being constitutedwhich would prove to be a milestone in the resolution of the problems of this sector. She said a special tribunal for the real estate sector would also be constituted for timely decisions in case of litigation.

She thanked the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) for reducing Capital Gains Tax on the property from 2 percent to one percent.

She said Prime Minister Imran Khan intended to provide shelter to every poor person of the society and this dream could not be materialized without the cooperation of the real estate sector.
