LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan on Thursday said that the former rulers have devastated the economy and only built their empires.
Addressing the traders during a ceremony in Lahore, Khan criticized PML-N saying, “So far I came to hear that the PML-N has an experienced team and will improve the condition of the economy.”
“Development becomes possible only through [good] governance. These [corrupt] rulers have left the country deep in debt. But they are not worried, because their wealth lies abroad,” said the PTI chief. Pointing out that the rupee had slid behind currencies of other South Asian nations such as India and Bangladesh, Imran lamented that the depreciation would hike inflation and the cost of imports.
He said unemployment remained one of the country’s biggest problems and said he would work to generate employment opportunities for the youth by fueling investment.
The leader who lives abroad cannot understand the suffering of masses, condemned Khan.
“Three-time PM sons are settled in London. They became a billionaire over there and do not consider themselves as Pakistanis,” he said.
The PTI chairman went on to say that the leader who demands their citizens to bring money back to Pakistan but send their own in foreign accounts can never think about the country.
“PTI will make a joint policy with traders. Our government will lower the taxes so that maximum people can enter the tax net. The problem of Pakistan is unemployment. In the past years, minimum investment has been witnessed. US ‘s economy went up after Trump lowered the taxes,” asserted Imran Khan.
