KARACHI: Spokesperson of Sindh Government Senator Murtaza Wahab on Thursday demanded to hold inquiry against corruption of the Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf (PTI) government.
The word corruption could not be written without PTI now, Murtaza Wahab said while addressing a press conference in Karachi.
He said Prime Minister Imran Khan had said that he would take action against sugar cartel. Then, he asked, what action was taken by him. The PM said he would take action against petrol cartel, but in the history of Pakistan for the first time the country saw shortage of petrol.
The Sindh government spokesman said that because of the wrong and corrupt policies of the government scandal of medicine prices had surfaced twice and wheat scandal had also surfaced.
He said when the PTI came into power sugar was Rs55 a kilogram and now it had climbed to Rs92 a kg. He blamed the prime minister for his direct involvement in the hike in sugar prices.
“When will you respond on the loss inflicted in the scandals of wheat, sugar and oil prices,” he queried adding that money embezzlement and the PTI government were going hand in hand.
Murtaza Wahab said the PM did not need to take notice of things, rather he should take action.
The senator apprised that media that palm trees were planted in Thatta according to the international standards and within 30 days oil from those trees would be started extracting.
“We want to make Pakistan a palm oil exporting country, rather than the country that is importing it,” he said.
