ISLAMABAD: Minister for Information and Broadcasting Chaudhry Fawad Hussain on Monday said Prime Minister Imran Khan will soon announce a massive relief package to mitigate impact of inflation on the common people.

After the meeting of the core committee of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), which met in the federal capital with PM in the chair, he said the package will benefit 10 million people.

He said the committee has expressed concerns over the growing oil prices in the international market and called for devising a mechanism to face this challenge.
