LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PMLN) Vice President and Leader of the Opposition in the Punjab Assembly Hamza Shahbaz on Thursday lashed out at the Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf (PTI) government for not fulfilling the promises that it made prior to general elections 2018.
Hamza Shahbaz said that the nation was lied about so many things including converting the governor house into a university, creating 10 million jobs, providing five million houses, eradication of corruption and police reforms.
He said that Prime Minister Imran Khan also could not fulfil his promise of creation of South Punjab so far.
“Joblessness has increased from 33 percent to 85 percent and they are trying to hide behind coronavirus pandemic,” he said.
The PML-N vice president said that the prime minister had said that he would commit suicide if he went to the International Monetary Fund (IMF). He said the ruling party had changed the finance minister three times in three years. He also said that the PML-N government had taken Rs25,000 billion loan, while the incumbent government had taken Rs48,000 loan.
He said they rose petroleum product prices the next day when they could not digest the federal budget.
