After the meeting, the MNAs told reporters that Prime Minister Imran assured that development funds for the members would be increased from Rs150 million to Rs500 million.

During meeting of the party’s parliamentary committee, the MPs requested the prime minister to take notice of the delay in execution of the Karachi Transformation Plan, to which, he said no delay in this regard would be tolerated.
