Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Senior leader Shiekh Aftab Ahmed has said the PTI leaders will not be in a position to face public in next polls due to highest ever prices of daily commodities, especially food items and utilities.
Addressing party workers at Hassanabdal on Monday, he said that inflation in the country was high because the prices of oil, electricity and gas had increased.
He was of the view that ever since the government presented this budget, inflation rate had shot through the roof and the prices of virtually everything had increased manifold.
He said that the increase in the prices of sugar, flour and ghee shows that the government is completely blind to the rising poverty in the country and the plight of the poor. He said that inflation in the country had already peaked at 20 percent, according to the sensitive Price Index.—Raza Naqvi
