LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) leader and member of the National Assembly (MNA) Ahsan Iqbal said that the incumbent government has taken sky-high loans which are unprecedented in the history of the state.
“The country is collapsing economically […] industries are being shut down while people are in a state of misery,” he said while talking to the media.
The minister compared the tenures of the PML-N and the PTI-led federal government and stated that the country had been progressing in the rule of the PML-N.
He accused the PTI of working on a “foreign agenda” as the government has not allocated funds for the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) during the passage of the budget [for the fiscal year 2019-20] adding that the incumbent government has imposed to sabotage the CPEC.
“The general public has been burdened due to incompetency of the current government,” he went on to say, adding that the PML-N has made a deal only with the public and the Constitution.
“There’s no concept of any deal […] the constitutional way is only to hold new elections,” he concluded.
