LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) vice president Maryam Nawaz on Saturday rejected hike in price of petroleum products and said that the increase is like a lightning strike on public.
Talking to media persons, Maryam Nawaz said that hike in petrol price has a spiral effect and everything gets expensive. People still have to make their ends meet in just Rs20,000 as not everyone lives in Banigala and has ‘ATMs’.
The PML-N leader said that government has robbed the people and now poor are paying price of government’s incompetence.
Maryam also criticized government’s response regarding dengue and said that people are dying because of government’s incompetence and indifference towards pain and suffering of people. If Shehbaz Sharif was ruling Punjab, people would still be getting free medicines, she added.
