LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president and opposition leader in National Assembly (NA) Shehbaz Sharif has termed the relief package of Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan as bundle of lies.
In a statement, the PML-N leader rejected the relief package announced by the premier and asked how can we control the inflation with increasing prices of petrol, gas and electricity.
Today's address of Imran Khan spells further doom for the masses. This speech was an admission of incompetence, helplessness and utter administrative paralysis. PM came across as someone who has lost control on everything. PTI govt has become a liability.— Shehbaz Sharif (@CMShehbaz) November 3, 2021
He said that the conditions imposed by International Monetary Fund (IMF) have badly affected the people of Pakistan.
The reaction came after PM Imran Khan said that the price of petrol in Pakistan is low, the prices of petrol will have to be increased further otherwise the deficit will increase.
The premier said the package would be “the biggest welfare programme in Pakistan s history”, which he said would take the country towards becoming a welfare state.
