Country’s economy cannot be fixed by hurling expletives: Khursheed Shah
SUKKUR (92 News) – Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) leader Khursheed Shah on Monday said that the performance of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) government openly surface within 50 days and Pakistan’s economy cannot be fixed by hurling expletives.
Speaking to the journalists, Khursheed Shah said that the government has announced a failed economic policy, adding that due to this national debt has been increased worth of Rs10 billion.
“The country’s economy cannot be fixed by hurling expletives,” he asserted while adding that fear is gripping the nation regarding the economic situation. “The issue of the economy is the country’s issue and not one between PTI and political parties.”
Stating that the opposition has been fulfilling its constitutional role, the PPP leader said, “We will not create hurdles in the way of the government and will give them a chance to prove themselves.”
Shah said that confusion and scared atmosphere created after the arrest of opposition leader Shehbaz Sharif. He mentioned that the opposition parties were prepared for talks with the government before the sudden arrest of opposition leader Shehbaz Sharif.
“We were ready to accept all of government’s terms, but the opposition leader was abruptly arrested,” the PPP leader said. “Pressure is exerted through National Accountability Bureau (NAB), Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) and Federal Board of Revenue,” he alleged.
Responding to the by election, he said that the u-turn has been come in the vacated seats of the PTI due to the u-turn of the incumbent government including IMF bailout.
Taking jibe at PTI-led government, Shah continued that every party won the by election from their vacated seats except the PTI, adding that the public took u-turn and the PTI defeated from its vacated seats after 60 days due to the failed policy of the government.
He said that the PTI also lost its both the seats, saying that the public is upset from rapidly decline in the economy. “The government performance is not zero, rather it is in minus. The performance of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s experts is less than lay man.”
Criticising Prime Minister Imran Khan’s Naya Pakistan Housing Programme, Shah claimed that It is a drama and beyond understanding. It will be a bigger mistake than the Ashiana Housing scheme.
“How will a man who earns Rs3,000 pay back a loan of Rs1.5 million?” he asked. Khursheed further remarked that on the one side the government is talking about making millions of houses, while on the other hand they are demolishing houses and making millions homeless.
