KARACHI: Pakistan Peoples Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari while rejecting the increase in prices of petroleum products said that after inflation, unemployment, poverty, increase in dollar and corruption, Imran Khan has reached record levels in increasing oil prices.
The PPP chairman said in a statement that the increase in the price of petroleum products is a robbery on the pockets of the people and Pakistan will not accept it. He further stated that Imran Khan intensified his inflationary bombardment of the people.
Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said CNG stations have been closed for three months and now rising oil prices will further push up inflation and food prices.
The PPP chairman said oil prices had risen sharply for the elected government, but prices had never fallen slightly. When world market prices go up, oil prices in Pakistan go up. But when world prices fall, Pakistan’s prices stay the same.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that at least in the last days of his rule, Imran Khan should have sympathy for Pakistan’s poor. He said if anyone in the chosen government had sympathy for the Pakistani people, they should have a word with Imran Khan.
The BJP chairman said the long march from February 27 will take into account every robbery that happens in the pockets of the people, and the days of the puppet circus are over.
