Lahore: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President and Leader of Opposition in the National Assembly Mian Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif has strongly reacted to the shortage of petroleum products in the country and the difficulties faced by the people and termed it as failure of the government.
The leader of the opposition party said that the government should sit down with oil companies and immediately propose a solution because people are suffering because of the shortage of oil products.
He said that the government’s repeated mistakes in the oil sector are the same as those in the national economy, natural gas and the dollar exchange rate.
President PML-N said that when people should observe SOP to maintain social distance to curb the spread of coronavirus, the shortage of gasoline has caused congestion at gas stations.
He said that despite the historic decline in oil product prices, the government was still unable to provide relief to the people.
Shehbaz Sharif said that the Prime Minister has urged private companies to pass on the benefits of falling oil prices to the people, but he has not taken any action on this. He added that why the benefits of historic oil price declines were not passed on to people by lowering electricity and natural gas prices.
