LONDON: According to sources, British-Pakistani entrepreneur Aneel Musarrat would provide advice to Prime Minister Imran Khan with regard to the latter’s plans to build five million homes despite not taking up any formal role in the cabinet.
Since Khan assumed office, there has been a lot of speculation about the role of Musarrat, whose pictures with Imran Khan and few other top Pakistani officials went viral. The latest of these rumours are based on images wherein the premier is seen with Aneel Musarrat and Sahibzada Jahangir — both British nationals — during a meeting, with some people questioning if they the duo would be getting a position in the new government.
Musarrat, a millionaire, was seen again in Monday’s cabinet meeting wherein Khan reviewed progress on the formulation of a roadmap for the construction of five million houses across the country.
It is worth mentioning, providing 5 million homes and 10 million jobs is the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf pledge to provide withing 5 years of their scheduled tenure.
