Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry on Friday blamed the Sindh government for the increase in sugar and flour prices while also criticising the economic policies of previous governments.
Addressing a press conference in Islamabad alongside Minister for National Food Security and Research Syed Fakhar Imam, he began by saying that the PTI government had to pay back the debts incurred by previous governments.
He said the country was suffering as a result of the bad “economic policies” implemented by previous governments.
“To those who tell us that we always blame previous governments, we can’t fix their [mismanagement] in three years,” the minister argued.
He singled out the “horrible” economic policies of former finance minister Ishaq Dar and noted how former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and PML-N leader Miftah Ismail had also been vocal about their criticism of the same. “But now they are offering justifications.”
