Economic recovery top priority of govt: Musadiq Malik



Minister of State for Petroleum Division Dr. Musadiq Masood Malik said on Sunday that economic recovery was the first priority of the present government, the prices of commodities and other essential items would be reduced in the coming days.

Addressing a press conference here at Lahore Press Club, he said that PDM government was standing with the poor man, adding “Our aim is to solve the problems of the poor.” The prices of food items and other essential items would start decreasing soon that would subsequently help reduce the hardships of the poor strata, he assured.

Malik said that government would soon reduce the gas and electricity tariff for common man, and they would be paying reduced gas and electricity bills as compared to the rich man.

He said that Imran Khan was sitting at his home and advising the children of the poor to be jailed. Imran Khan was true by saying that there were two Pakistans, one for the poor and the other for the rich, he said, citing that the bread thief was being punished and there was no questioning of thief, who stole diamonds and costly gifts, while the PML-N leadership was disqualified for not taking salary from his son. The PML-N leaders and workers had to endure great hardship and were imprisoned during PTI government, as Imran Khan had implicated his political opponents in false cases.

Musadiq Malik said that there was a Pakistan in which a person who took 450 kanals of land from Malik Riaz was now roaming freely and the person, who gave him the benefit of US $ 250 million assumed himself as the leader of this country.—APP
