KARACHI: Tariq Malik, President of KATI has advised the incoming government headed by Imran Khan to set the direction of the government in first hundred days so that the people of Pakistan should know that the incumbent Prime Minister meant business by strictly paving the way for good governance as present crises facing Pakistan was because of bad governance and rampant corruption.
