ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Prime Minister Imran Khan has hinted at an increase in the petroleum prices, saying that the inflation flood is getting out of control.

Addressing a ceremony after laying the foundation stone of Lillah-Jhelum Road on Tuesday, he said that the oil prices had increased manifold and it was being feared that they would further increase.

"The difficult time is only until the winter. We know the people are in trouble and we will steer them out of this difficulty," he said.

The prime minister said that poverty had reduced in the country during the PTI tenure. "The nation cannot make progress by spending billions of rupees on the Metro just to win the elections," he added.

Speaking on the occasion, Federal Minister for Information Fawad Chaudhary said that commission cannot be proved in any project of Prime Minister Imran Khan.

He said that all projects of the Motorway were formed during the previous tenure.
