Imran Khan lashes govt for its economic policies
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Saturday criticised the federal government for its economic policies.
Speaking to media persons at his Bani Gala residence here before leaving for Karachi, Imran said that he would present a charter of demand during his protest against the federal government over the privatization of Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) in the mega city.
The PTI Chairman said that he would sit with the protesting employees of the national airliner and devise a strategy regarding the resolution of the crisis.
He also said in other countries taxes were taken from the rich and spent on the poor but the situation was totally opposite in Pakistan. About 98 per cent tax was imposed on diesel which directly affected the common people, especially farmers and small traders, he added.
“The federal government has initiating the Orange Line Train service by borrowing a loan billions of rupees, whereas it is not providing even clean drinking water to the people,” Imran said.
The PTI Chairman added that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had made China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) controversial by allowing Hamza Shehbaz and Chief Minister Punjab Shehbaz Sharif to tour China.
