Sweeping changes being introduced in foreign ministry: FM Qureshi
MULTAN - Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has said that revolutionary changes were being introduced in the foreign ministry.

All the diplomatic missions in foreign countries had been instructed to follow austerity measures and work with dedication for the betterment of overseas Pakistanis, he added.

The austerity measures are being taken in the light of Prime Minister Imran Khan's vision to lessen expenses. In his victory speech after the elections, the PTI chief had said, “I pledge this to you today, it will be my foremost aim to remain as simple as possible … in this poor country, these huge symbols, these mansions and protocols, on public’s money, I pledge that there will be a different kind of governance in Pakistan”.

During a visit to his constituency in Multan, Qureshi said that the diplomats had been directed to work for raising the foreign investment in the country.

According to a press release issued by Babul Qurashi, he said South Punjab province could be made easily if the PML-N and the PPP extended cooperation in this regard.

He said that almost all the government departments were facing numerous problems, adding that the masses were fed up with police culture.

Qureshi said that people had voted the PTI for change and the incumbent government was committed to bringing about change. He added that the PTI would come up to the expectations of masses.

He urged people to identify problems in their areas and the government would resolve them on a priority basis.
