HASSAN ABDAL: Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf (PTI) parliamentarian has lashed out at his government, accusing it of begging from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and causing inflation unemployment in the country.
PTI MNA from Attock Major (retd) Tahir Sadiq said criticized his own government over failed policies and the worst economic situation in the country.
Addressing a convention of Major Youth Wing at Hassan Abdal, Sadiq said,“PTI is suffering due to wrong decisions of the party leadership and neglect of merit.”
Tahir Sadiq also lashed out at the government for allegedly failing to take action against the persons responsible for the wheat and sugar crises and allowing them to go abroad. “People are exhausted from the burden of food and fuel inflation and million have become food insecure due to unemployment,” he said.
“If the government does not pay attention to solving the issues of inflation and unemployment, people will take revenge in the next elections,” he predicted.
Sadiq said that the decision to join PTI was made in the public interest; however, “if the officials make decisions against the public interest, we will be forced to stand up and do what we should not want to do.”
“Incompetent advisers including Zulfiqar Bukhari were asking for a share in the development funds and schemes as if the government was distributing candies among children”, he alleged.
He disclosed four ministers sitting in the parliament have been elected from Attock, yet no megaproject could be initiated in the area and no steps are being taken to employ the youth of the constituency.
The MNA said there was no threat to the government from the opposition, adding that the weaknesses of the government were incompetence and corruption from which the opposition was benefiting.
