Elections best bet to save deteriorating economy: Asad


PTI General-Secretary Asad Umar on Thursday advised the newly elected coalition government to immediately call elections as it was the best way to save the country’s “rapidly deteriorating” economy.

“This is not just what Imran Khan wants but it’s also the mandate of the entire population of Pakistan,” he told journalists. “I’m telling you … If the government wants to take a smart and politically sound decision, it has to call elections. “Because the way the economy is weakening, there’s a ‘do more’ pressure on them,” Umar said, lamenting that by taking any other decision in these “critical circumstances”, the government would head towards its doom.

The former minister also said that the “imported government” seemed to be unhappy with the pace of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

“During the PTI government, more than 1,000 megawatt warehouses were built. We brought information technology, science, industrial zones, and roads to CPEC.”
