LAHORE ( Web News )
Former prime minister and Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan took former army chief General (retd) Qamar Javed Bajwa and the present Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) government to task on Thursday as he pinned the blame for Pakistan’s financial woes on them.
Continuing his attack on the Bajwa and the incumbent government, Imran Khan said that Pakistanis were paying a heavy price of the regime change conspiracy where a bunch of criminals have been foisted upon nation by ex COAS. “Rupee slaughtered,” Imran exclaimed as he noted that the Pakistani currency has “lost over 62% or 110/$ in 11 months of PDM.”
“This has increased public debt alone by Rs 14.3 trn & historic 75 yr high inflation of 31.5%”, he said.
