Foreigners can apply for permanent residency under NSP: Fawad


Staff Report

ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry on Friday said that in line with new National Security Policy (NSP) through which Pakistan declared geo-economics as core of its national security doctrine, the government has decided to allow permanent residency scheme for foreign nationals.
“New policy allows foreigners to get permanent resident status in lieu of investment in Pakistan,” Fawad wrote on his official Twitter handle.
Fawad tweeted a couplet from Saraiki poetry and a picture of opposition leaders and members to illustrate their “humiliating defeat” in the National Assembly the other day.
The couplet was taken from the poetry of a prominent Saraiki-language poet Shakir Shuja Abadi. “You are yourself wise Shakir… don’t ask for situation, just read our faces,” the couplet roughly means.
In the photo shared by the minister, opposition leaders and members can be seen sitting with gloom after the government succeeded in getting the bills of important nature passed from the lower house yesterday.
“Yet another defeat for opposition,” Fawad said in the tweet, expressing the hope that the opposition leaders would not be in the Parliament after the 2023 general elections.
The next elections would be the last polls for “Zardari group” and “Noon League”, he added.
