She said that Pakistan Peoples Party strongly condemned dropping electricity bomb on the poor masses and demanded of the government to withdraw its decision.While slamming the decision of government to increase the prices of electricity here on Friday, Shazia Marri said that PM Imran Khan is looting the pockets of the people by increasing the electricity tariff and he has been implementing such decisions on the dictation of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in the country
Central Information Secretary of Pakistan Peoples Party Parliamentarians (PPP-P) Shazia Atta Marri further stated that if the prime minister will remain in the power, people would have to sell their utensils in order to pay the electricity bills and even to light up a bulb in their houses.
The PPP leader claimed that the farmers march to be observed on 21st of January will shake the foundations of PTI’s government. She said that long march would be held against the worst economic policies of PTI-led government across the country on 27th of February under the leadership of chairman PPP Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and Imran Khan would be held accountable for his policies by the people as they will reach at Islamabad.
The incumbent federal government has mortgaged the State Bank of Pakistan to the loan giant International Monetary Fund while the members of the PTI government are being held accountable by the people of their constituencies, she said adding that people were hoping that Imran Khan would prefer to quit instead of going to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for loans but he is dropping the inflation bombs on the people.
