Queues for sugar draw ire of ShehbazArchive
LAHORE: PML-N President and Opposition Leader in National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif said on Monday that had the sugar and flour of the people not been looted under the patronage of Prime Minister Imran Khan, Pakistanis would not have to suffer in long queues and run from pillar to post for the commodities.
Talking to the party’s parliamentarians here in Model Town, Shehbaz urged the government to rescue the mothers and daughters of the nation from the humiliation of standing in long queues [while fasting] in the heat for a kilogram of sugar.
He said the lives of the people were put at risk by this government with its unpreparedness and ‘disastrous’ vaccination drive.
Shehbaz said blaming the officials for government’s own failures was a highly condemnable act.
He said the only one to blame for the disastrous inflation was the PTI government. He said the PTI government could not fathom the level of damage they had done to the national economy.
Meanwhile, PML-N information secretary Marriyum Aurangzeb in a statement said the entire nation saw how Imran visited empty markets. She said Imran hiked the price of all edibles during Ramadan and then shot a pre-planned video in cinematic fashion to deceive the people of Pakistan. “These movies cannot provide relief to the people. Imran’s modeling does not help reduce the price of sugar, flour, medicine, electricity and gas”, she said.
