Hamza controlling poultry prices from jail, claims Firdous Ashiq

As the poultry products including chicken and eggs prices are skyrocketing with every passing day Special Assistant to Chief Minister on Information Firdous Ashiq Awan Tuesday came up with bizarre excuses to shift the blame on opposition and cold weather, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Talking to the media, Firdous alleged that Hamza Shehbaz was controlling the poultry market from the jail and that’s why the prices of the meat has been soared to new highs.

The chicken meat is being sold from Rs300 per kg to Rs360 per kg in the country while the eggs prices are shattering all records in the country as it has reached from Rs200 per dozen to Rs220 per dozen all around the country.

However, Firdous has left the masses flabbergasted when she suggested that the eggs prices were increasing due to the severe cold weather as the consumption of the eggs have increased.

She also claimed that opposition leader in Punjab Assembly was behind the increase in the prices of chicken as he is pulling the strings from the jail to monopolies the market.

It was not the first time the blame for the poultry prices increase has been put on Hamza for his business interests in the industry as when he was in the government it was also usual blame put on him by the opposition.

But even him being in opposition and even in jail the former opposition who is now in the office still resorted to same allegations raising questions on their ability and claims of corruption-free practices and good governance.

Her comments left people bemused as it was not the first time that cold has gripped the country but it is the very first time that the eggs prices have hit a double century.

While reacting to Firdous allegations regarding, PML-N Punjab spokesperson Azma Bukhari said the government is in habit of putting blame on the former government for all of its failures.

And it cannot be more true with the further bizarre actions and claims of Firdous.

As a black cat entered the press conference and take a round around the dais when Firdous was attacking the opposition, the cat also termed to by an opposition’s ally.

Firdous said this was the same cat who protects the milk of opposition.

Even the poor cat has to face the wrath Firdous has for the opposition.
