Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Saturday said that the decision on whether to raise or lower the price of petrol irks the most and causes him to have restless and sleepless nights.
Speaking at the Mufti Mehmood Conference, which was held in memory of late Jamiat-e-Ulema-e-Islam leader Mufti Mehmood, the Prime Minister claimed that raising the price of gas or petroleum products causes him to have restless nights.
“This decision, (especially) when we have to raise the prices of petroleum products, gives me sleepless nights, even today, we have to take one,” said PM Shehbaz Sharif.
Shehbaz Sharif also paid rich tribute to Mufti Mehmood and said that he not only served Islam but brought a lot of dignity to the politics of the country.
While praising Mufti Mehmood, PM Shehbaz also deeply criticized his major opponent and former PM Imran Khan by saying that in comparison with the politics of “dialogue and mutual respect that Mufti Mehmood promoted, today’s politicians, especially Imran Khan, promoted the politics of intolerance and insolence.
Shehbaz Sharif also claimed that Imran Khan, during his days as PM, destroyed the country’s economy but is still shamelessly blaming the current government for the country’s problems during his speeches at PTI rallies.
“A man (Imran Khan) not only destroyed our economy but was also praying for the country to default when out of power,” said Shehbaz Sharif.
PM Shehbaz maintained that his economic team worked day in and day out to steer the country out of economic crisis and is still giving their best to put Pakistan back on track with development and give people relief by bringing down the inflation rate.
