However, he urged the banking officials to accelerate the efforts to realize the dream of every Pakistani to own his home
He also said that the “Mera Pakistan Mera Ghar” scheme is a government’s scheme of subsidized loans for house construction but it would not just help the low-income group to have a house for themselves but will also boost the economy through increased construction activity
