LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman and former prime minister Imran Khan on Sunday strongly criticised the ruling alliance of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) for a massive and sudden petrol price hike, saying that the total mismanagement of the economy by the “imported government” has crushed the masses and salaried class.
The criticism from the ex-premier came after Federal Finance Minister Ishaq Dar, in a televised address, unveiled the revised prices of the POL products that went into effect at 11:00 am – 10 minutes later.
Reacting to the development, the PTI chairman took to Twitter. He wrote: “Total mismanagement of our economy by a corrupt and incompetent imported government has crushed the masses and salaried class with the latest hike in petrol and diesel prices and Rs33/$ devaluation to Rs262.60/$. Electricity and gas price hike and 35% unprecedented inflation expected with Rs200bn mini-budget.”
PTI Secretary General Asad Umar said that the public was already fed up with inflation. “May Allah have mercy on these people and deliver them from this punishment,” he added.
