Prime Minister Imran Khan’s friend, British Pakistani businessman Aneel Musarrat, has revealed that the premier will announce the 5mn houses project next week, and at the same time measures will be taken to revamp the legal framework around the housing projects and banking laws.

In an interview, Musarrat said that the prime minister’s task force on housing has been working hard to take the project to the announcement level, and that Khan himself will be making the announcement.

“We will take overseas housing expertise to Pakistan to help Imran Khan’s election manifesto in which he promised to build 5mn homes,” he said. “We will help execute his vision into a reality.”

“Pakistan will benefit from this project, as it will end joblessness and will create at least 600,000 jobs besides reinvigorating the industry,” Musarrat added. “More than 200 components will be needed to build each house which includes cement, nails, iron, sand, stones, wood and so much more and all of this will be produced in Pakistan.”

“This project will help open the closed industries. The whole sector will see new life infused into it,” said the businessman, who has been dealing in the housing sector from the age of 18 when he left school in Manchester to start his own business.

When asked about some of the criticism directed his way, Musarrat said he has relevant experience in delivering mega projects.

India's River Diversion Plan and South Asia's Waters

More dams are to come, as India’s need to power its economy means it is quietly spending billions on hydropower in Kashmir. The Senate report totted up 33 hydro projects in the border area with Pakistan. The state’s chief minister, Omar Abdullah, says dams will add an extra 3,000MW to the grid in the next eight years alone. Some analysts in Srinagar talk of over 60 dam projects, large and small, now on the books.
