Saeed Ghani lambasts centre for inflation, mismanagement at FO
KARACCHI: Sindh Minister for Local Government Saeed Ghani on Tuesday took a dig at the federal government for increase in commodity prices and mismanagement at the Foreign Office, ARY News reported.
“In ‘Naya Pakistan’, when prices on different products go high it is termed that it is being done to provide facilities to the masses,” he said while talking to media.
While, the LG minister said, in ‘old Pakistan’ if prices on gas, urea, electricity were raised, it was completely wrong because it would affect common men.
He mockingly said Finance Minister Asad Umer must have “a magical wand” (to resolve all issues) and soon people would realise it.
Saeed Ghani said the biggest incompetence of the ruling government had established in management of the foreign office.
He said some American official phones and says something and they run something else in the news conceiving as if nobody outside the country would see their news.
“When they saw the news they made correction about what they had said,” he said.
The minister said when French President Office’s officials called the PM House to set time for phone call to congratulate Imran Khan on his assuming the office, it was quoted that the French president himself called and he was asked to call another time for the PM was busy in a meeting.
“This is next level to immaturity,” he said.
During a speech in the National Assembly, Asad Umar rejected opposition’s criticism over increase in gas prices by saying that the prices of natural gas had increased drastically in the past few months so the government had only shifted the burden on elite class not middle class or poor sections of society.
