Shehbaz criticises government on failure to control essential commodities prices
Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly and PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif criticised the government on failure to control the prices of essential commodities, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
In a statement released, Shehbaz Sharif said, “The rulers have no knowledge of the economy and the sufferings of the people as people are hungry and unemployed but it is being propagated that everything is fine.”
Shehbaz Sharif said that people are starving for two meals a day and the country is facing a crisis of rising commodity prices.
He said that people are facing shortages of flour, wheat, sugar, vegetables, cooking oil, poultry, milk, eggs, medicines and commodity prices are out of reach of the masses.
The PML-N president also commented that the reason for inflation in the country is the government because every day their corruption scandals are being reported.
Citing prices of the commodities, the NA Opposition Leader said that the price of flour has gone up by Rs 57 per kg which is an increase of 73 percent while sugar per kg increased up to Rs 130.
Sharing the evidence of ineligibility of the PTI government, Shehbaz Sharif the government did not ensure the availability of flour in the wheat surplus country.
Earlier Marriyum Aurenzaib commented, “It’s laughable considering the total increase in three years is only 17 percent. Average of less than six percent per annum. Compare this with the PML-N period when we grew 20 percent per annum. You are actually commending your pathetic performance.”
