LAHORE: Slamming the federal government for its economic policies, (PTI) Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leader Hammad Azhar on Monday said that the economy is deteriorating, and the dollar is not even available even at the existing rate.Addressing a press conference in Lahore, he said that LCs of spare parts have not been opened.
He added that the market lost its trust during Miftah Ismail’s time and now Ishaq Dar is in the same situation.
He further said that the government is counting on Beijing and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to save it.
“This government is not running this economy, it has never been disclosed who the minister of energy is,” he remarked.
The former federal minister said that the only way forward is to give everything to a caretaker government and bring in a new government.
He also called for reducing unnecessary expenses.
Flaying the government, he said that if a journalist says something like this, he will be killed outside.
“The people and their opinion should be recognised first,” he demanded.
“In our era, if something was lacking, people used to hold shows against it,” he said. “Anchors who had become self-proclaimed economic experts have not closed their mouths shut.”
“They are afraid of Imran Khan, this is why there are not coming to the forefront,” he further said.
Azhar said that the government first made oil more expensive, then they said that the money is coming from Qatar, and the flood relief money is coming as well. “If you are not doing anything, let others come,” he said.
“The entire economy and social order were paralysed due to the fear of Imran Khan,” the former minister said.
“The economy cannot survive anymore; the private sector does not have the dollars to buy raw materials,” he said.
“Even his ministers do not care about Dar Sahib,” he claimed.
He further said that the PTI will only discuss immediate elections with the government.
