Former prime minister and PTI Chairman Imran Khan has said that the nation will not forget those “traitors” who imposed this ‘imported government’ upon them, accusing the incumbent rulers of destroying the country’s economy.
“I will not accept these thieves and will continue to compete with them and their backers till I am alive,” he said while addressing a rally in Punjab’s Chakwal district on Monday.
Imran said all sectors of the economy were flourishing during his tenure when the then opposition along with the “conspirators” toppled his government which he said triggered economic crisis in the country.
“They run a propaganda campaign against my government with the help of their paid media houses that the country’s economy was sinking during my tenure,” he said.
The former PM said the price of electricity has been increased three-fold since the PML-N-led government came to power earlier this year.
Likewise, the prices of other commodities including flour and rice have also witnessed exorbitant increase during the last five months, he added.
“People have been crushed under the inflation… country’s economy grew at the highest rate in 17 years during my tenure,” he insisted.
“They [government] have committed an economic murder of the farmers… exports are falling, industry is shutting down and unemployment is rising,” he claimed.
