Lahore: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) representative Hamza Sheikh Baz said on Friday that a parliamentary committee should be established to identify the real culprits of the Muri tragedy.
He said that the inflation continues to rise across the country. Pakistan has become the third most expensive country in the world.
The incumbent government has injected an injection of Rs350 billion into the people s under the name of mini-budget implications and the rulers have nothing but words. The tragedy of Murree has hurt the emotions of people..
The opposition leader said that the indifference of the rulers broke all boundaries. Who were the people at the place where the incident took place? Hub train crash kills 70, no one brought to justice. Bazdar was taking the report of Murree tragedy as if he had done some extra ordinary work.
The opposition leader Punjab Assembly further said that when people were dying out if cold, Wasim Akram plus his group members were holding meeting.
Where is Usman Bazdar’s helicopter when people are dying? Such aloof rulers have never been seen in history. Are you making fun of people’s mood after 15 suspensions? PML-N won’t sit still until the real culprit is identified.
He went on to add that Pakistan is the third most expensive country in the world. The State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) is enslaved by the International Monetary Fund while the country’s economy has collapsed.
The PML-N leader said that Imran Niazi still remembers the Sharif family and that Imran Niazi will have to answer before the court of the people and Allah.
