Addressing a ceremony marking completion of the first 100 days of his government on Thursday, Prime Minister Imran Khan said they tried to benefit the common man from their policies.

The prime minister took the nation into confidence regarding PTI's 100 days in power at the ceremony held at Jinnah Convention Centre in Islamabad.

During his address, Khan credited his wife, Bushra Bibi, for the performance of his government in first 100 days as he took only one day off during this entire period. He said his wife supported him in difficult times.

He said they tried to benefit the common man from their policies in the first three months. The prime minister said the same reason was behind friendship with India as it will help increase trade between the two countries.
