ISLAMABAD, May 9,2022- Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Monday pointed out that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan had dangerous talk about Pakistan’s institutions in his speech yesterday and urged to take notice of it, or else the situation will get out of hand.
Addressing the National Assembly session, Shehbaz Sharif said that the previous government did not order oil and gas on time, when gas was the cheapest, they did not make deals.
Gas was not imported when it was 3 dollars per unit in the world market. Oil mafia overshadows government, he said.
The PM criticized the previous government saying that by not buying the cheapest gas, billions of rupees have been lost to the country. He said that plants are repaired every year. Incompetent, corrupt government did not care about repairing plants.
Prime Minister further said that 5.5 billion fiscal deficit is the highest in history. Total loans increased by 85% in four years. The former PTI government took loans but nothing was done in terms of development anywhere.
Shehbaz Sharif said that Imran Khan had the worst talk about the institutions, the examples of Siraj-ud-Daulah and Mir Jaffer given by Imran Khan are bad move that was poisonous about the institution and another conspiracy against Pakistan.
The Prime Minister said that if it was not stopped, God forbid, the country would become a grim picture like Syria and Libya.
Speaking at the session Defense Minister Khawaja Asif said that Imran Khan is stuck on the agenda of destroying institutions, Imran Khan has tried to create cracks in that institution in last few months, and termed it the ‘worst stink of Pakistan’s politics.’
