“I am the greatest fundraiser in the history of Pakistan,” PM Imran stated. “I assure you that we have to meet our target of 30 billion rupees every year and we will meet more than our target as all Pakistanis have been mobilised today.”
The prime minister pointed out that when a nation and its government unites then nothing is impossible. He gave an example of how Japan and Germany were destroyed in the World War but are standing on their feet now.
