Federal Minister for Planning, Development and Reforms Khusro Pervez has said that that the PTI-led government is mobilizing all its resources to weed out corruption from the country.

The minister said that the elimination of polio was one of the top priorities of the government, adding that concrete measures would have to be taken to overcome the crippling disease.

On Thursday, the Cen­tral Development Working Party (CDWP) cleared a revised $986 million polio eradication program and deferred a decision on a Rs48 billion small dam project in Sindh due to unresolved issues.

Under the revised Emer­gency Plan for Polio Eradi­cation program, international agencies would fina­nce a $347m exercise to be concluded in 2021.
