PML-N Secretary Information Marriyum Aurangzeb has slammed Imran Khan for the unbearable inflation and unemployment in the country that had put a progressing country and its people on a murderous road to doomsday in a matter of three years.

In a statement, Marriyum told Imran to resign immediately instead of killing hundreds of thousands with poverty and starvation. She said Imran plummeted the national currency down to Rs173 against the dollar, drowning people under his tsunami of inflation and destroying the national economy.

“Imran did nothing in these three years other than making national institutions controversial by creating one after another spectacle of matters of routine procedures, only for his petty, shameless, personal interests. Imran shook the very foundations of the country by surrendering the fate of the country and its people to the IMF. He took a country with 5.8 growth rate projected to be the world’s fastest growing economy and dragged it down into a dark pit where there is no hope! Over the past three years, Imran did nothing other than lying, deceiving and robbing the nation. His incompetence, cluelessness and arrogance annihilated the country’s economic and foreign policy. Imran has buried the country so deep into debt that it would taje a miracle to revitalize the economy”, she lambasted.

The former Information Minister pointed out that over the past 3 years electricity tariffs have jumped from Rs11 to Rs24; gas tariffs from 600 to 1400; flour from Rs35 to 80; sugar from Rs53 to Rs120; Ghee and cooking oil to Rs340; Petrol from Rs70 to Rs138; cost of medicines went up by 300 percent; tea was upto Rs25 more expensive and cost of a single piece of bread skyrocketed from Rs8 to Rs25.

“How will the poor of this country survive in this insane inflation? How will they feed, educate, pay for electricity, gas, a roof over their heads medicines and medical treatment? How will they do anything when Imran Khan’s disastrous policies have already snatched whatever livelihoods they had?!”, she questioned.
