'Eggonomics': PM Khan's poultry plans become laughing stock

Khan pinpointed several achievements of the PTI government. Among them were strengthening the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) to curb money laundering, establishing a task force to keep a check on government hospitals, signing agreements with 26 countries, and recovering Rs35o billion worth of land via anti-encroachment drive among others.


He also talked about PTI’s plans to counter economic crisis and promote social welfare. One of the plans has, however, stood out and shined the brightest and people just cannot stop talking about it. The clip that is making rounds all over social media is of Khan talking about how PTI plans to improve living standards of rural women by strengthening the poultry system.


In the video, Khan could be heard saying: "We will provide them (rural women) with hens and eggs. I am telling you these things do not need billions of dollars. We have already experimented. We will inject the hens to maximize their protein intake and this way, the rural women will have something to make money out of. All I do right now is for the underprivileged"

PM Khan’s plan has not impressed many, including members of the opposition parties.
