Islamabad, January 02, 2021 (PPI-OT): President Dr. Arif Alvi says in view of controversy over the results of population census, the next census should be held early by incorporating the suggestions of all stakeholders to evolve a consensus. In an interview with a private television channel, he said as per law, the consensus on census result is essential for holding the elections.

The President said the PTI government had inherited several issues like artificial rupee values, current account deficit and low revenue generation. However, he said the national economy made a turnaround despite COVID-19 and also maintained a balance between lives and livelihood by allowing business activity.

Dr Arif Alvi said currently, the investors are coming to Pakistan as the stock exchange is also responding well. About the NAB law, he said it covers the corruption made during last 40 years in which the number of cases on opposition parties would be far more than the PTI, which has just two years of rule.
