  • September 15, 2021

ISLAMABAD – Central Information Secretary PPP Parliamrntarinans Shazia Atta Marri has said that the statement of Prime Minister’s Advisor on Finance Shau­kat Tarin regarding reduction in pric­es of flour, sugar was based on merely lies and ridiculousness. 

She said the advisor on finance was trying to cover-up the incompetence of selected PM Imran Khan and he should not make the fake interpreta­tions on rising prices and growing inflation rate in the country by giving the COVID-19 pretext. She said that government created crisis of sugar and wheat itself artificially. Marri add­ed that PTI’s government exported sugar and wheat on the cheap price and then imported simultaneously. 

She uttered that the high price of sugar and wheat in an agricultural country like Pakistan was the incom­petence of PTI’s government.

Marri questioned from government if COVID-19 was responsible for fix­ing prices of petrol, gas and electric­ity in the country. Is Covid-19 causing an obstacle in delay of procurement of LNG?” She surprisingly asked were the high prices of life-saving drugs linked with coronavirus pandemic. She said that PTI-led incompetent government was also blaming the COVID-19 situation for not increas­ing the salaries and pensions of gov­ernment employees. Marri uttered that Shaukat Tarin had said himself that notice often issued while speak­ing against National Accountability Bureau and added that former Presi­dent Asif Ali Zardari had rightly said that NAB and the country’s economy could not go together.
