In April last year, the PM laid the foundation stone of a housing scheme in Islamabad in a bid to further his government's policy for facilitating the country's underprivileged in owning properties.

Addressing the groundbreaking ceremony of the Farash Town apartments – a part of the Naya Pakistan Housing Scheme – the premier said that about 2,000 people will be able to own houses under the project.

"We hope that these apartments will be completed within the stipulated span of two years," he added.

In March, the premier also inaugurated a labourers' complex in the federal capital as part of the Naya Pakisan Housing Scheme.
