Govt seems totally clueless about the economy, says Bilawal
KARACHI: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said this government seems totally clueless about the economy and has no sense of direction.
“This government has no sense of direction when it comes to the economy. Those who claimed that they will break the begging bowl and announced that they will not go to the IMF are now asking for the biggest loan in Pakistan’s history,” said Bilawal.
He added that the PPP government faced the worst economic crisis when it came to power, but still managed to keep the inflation rate low it does not believe in putting the poor at risk.
“The current government has given us nothing but inflated prices of basic necessities. Global oil prices were at $148 per barrel but we did not increase prices,” he said.
He questioned the incumbent government’s intentions and said the only thing the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government has done is to make the lives of the nation more difficult.
“Those who claimed that they will give relief to the nation are actually snatching away the rights if the poor people.”
Bilawal pointed out that these policies could lead to an economic meltdown as there is a probability that inflation rates could go up to 14 percent. He said that Imran Khan’s ‘Naya Pakistan’ is turning out to be a nightmare for the people of Pakistan.
“This government has promised to build five million homes but it seems as if they will take away everything from the poor.”
