Fuel price hike nothing but rubbing salt on public wounds: Farrukh


Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Central Secretary Information Farrukh Habi came down hard on the inapt imported government and said that the dropping petroleum bomb thrice on the inflation-stricken masses in just 20 days was nothing but to rub salt on their wounds.

Responding to the corrupt ministers’ press conference here on Thursday, he said that they were well-versed in telling lies but did not have any roadmap and policy guideline to salvage the crippling economy.

Farrukh Habib that the imported government crushed the people under the back-breaking inflation while the gang of thieves were busy in befooling the masses through misleading talk on TV. Lashing out at Khawaja Asif his remarks against Imran Khan, Farrukh said that they all knew him well as his (Asif) sole distinction was to insult institutions but surprising the same person was made Defence Minister and now he became its spokesperson too.

He said that these corrupt gangs put the economy on the ventilator and they did not have any solution to it except increasing the POL price alarmingly through various lame excuses to hide their incompetence. Talking about threatening letter, Farrukh Habib said that the National Security Committee meeting twice endorsed the threat in the cipher, adding that imported rulers lied that there was no threat, in fact they were part of the dirty plot.

He said that if the Supreme Court probed into the matter, then the faces of all traitors would be exposed. He said that Imran Khan was working day and night to stabilize the country’s economy, however, the imported government destroyed everything within no time.

He counted the gifts of ‘Shahbaz Speed’, i.e., POL price hike, expensive power, gas expensive and food, annoying friendly countries and creating political and economic instability in the country. He said that wherever this corrupt gang went, they had to face humiliation, because they sold Pakistan’s sovereignty, plunging the country into worst economic and political crises to appease Pakistan’s enemies.

However, he made it clear that the history would never forgive these thieves and traitors and the nation would hold them accountable. Lashing out at Maryam Nawaz, Farrukh Habib said that a criminal was defending the wrong decisions of the imported government instead of giving proof of her corruption.—PR
