Islamabad, 12 January 2021: Secretary Information Pakistan Peoples Party Parliamentarians, Shazia Atta Marri MNA in reaction to the press conference of minister planning, Asad Umar has said that over 2 crore people have been made unemployed not by Covid-19 but due to the wrong policies of the PTI’ incapable government. Asad Umar instead of taking credit of managing Covid-19 should advise the puppet Prime Minister Imran Khan to resign.
Shazia Marri said that it was very unfortunate that at a time of a pandemic, a selected and inexperienced government was ruling Pakistan. If 50 percent Pakistani were consuming half the amount of food they need then it was due to unprecedented price hike in the country. Marri said that if people bought 54 percent less than it was due to reduction in their buying power. 47 percent people were compelled to spend from their savings due to wrong economic policies of the government. Thirty percent people were forced to take loans from their relatives and friends because the government failed to protect their income.
Secretary Information PPPP said that Asad Umar did not mention the people made unemployed by this government from institutions like Radio Pakistan, Pakistan Television, PIA, Steel Mills, PTDC etc. The government pushed government employees towards poverty and hunger. The minister did not tell us that why the government employees are protesting against this government. The incapable government destroyed industries and the investment were dried up in this government. The tariff increase of electricity and gas has become a norm in this selected government, Shazia Atta Marri concluded.
