People behind sugar crisis who trying to whiten their black money: Firdous
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Special Assistant on Information Firdous Ashiq Awan on Sunday termed that the sugar and flour crisis has been created by those people who invested their money in crops to whiten their black money.
Addressing a press conference, the special assistant mentioned that the people who made illegal assets would be accountable before the law. “We have come to know of a network behind the fake sugar crisis. People invested their money in crops to whiten their black money,” she added.
Govt to deal with corrupt mafia with iron hand
Firdous reiterated that the government is committed to deal with corrupt mafia with iron hand and accountability process will continue across the board.
She said corrupt mafias are behind the artificial shortage of flour and sugar with a planned effort to malign the government but they will be frustrated. She said that National exchequer had been badly plundered during the previous regimes.
She expressed the confidence that the PTI government will achieve good governance by introducing reforms in various institutions, including FBR and Police.
Mafia frightened from PM’s success
Firdous Ashiq Awan said that the mafia has been frightened from the success of Prime Minister Imran Khan. “The struggle of Imran Khan against the past systems is in the final stage and they currently face challenges in bringing reforms in the rotten system,” she maintained.
She also said that the corrupt mafia knows that their failure lies in the success of Imran Khan and therefore they created a flour and sugar crisis in the country. She blamed that the wheat was stored in godowns using black money but the prime minister has directed the provincial governments to take stern action against the hoarders.
The special assistant further elaborated that the mafia was trying to foil the reforms agenda of the prime minister but the latter would not step back an inch from the promises he made with the people of the country.
