62

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) MPAKhurrumSherZaman on Saturday held Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) government responsible for rising inflation and the worst law and order situation in Sindh. In response to a statement by Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah, the PTI leader said that instead of focusing on his responsibilities, the chief minister has become a spokesperson of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM). He maintained that the chief minister and his team were indulged in plundering national wealth instead of addressing the public issues. Last year in October, Special Adviser to the Prime Minister on Youth Affairs Usman Dar had said that they understood the grievances of the people amid increasing inflation but price hike was a provincial subject after the 18th Amendment. Talking on TV channel, the SAPM on Youth Affairs had said a better plan to manage wheat and sugar for the country could have been worked out but the advent of novel coronavirus caused a surge in commodity rates across the globe.
