He also made it clear that the ministries were awarded not on personal choices but on the basis of individual capacity and interest. Anyone not performing well, PM Khan has said, will have to go back to home.

Moreover, it is unprecedented in the history of Pakistan that a PM himself chaired a meeting and reviewed the performance of all minsters and also gave them future tasks. Even ministers are required to be asked by someone about their performances; this would make them realize that they have responsibilities to perform and tasks to achieve that too in a given period of time.  This is established that Pakistan is prospering under the leadership of Mr. Khan who has promised to make a Naya Pakistan.
