PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari slammed Prime Minister Imran Khan for “the worst economy in our country’s history” shortly after a press conference by Cabinet members in which they highlighted the government’s achievements over the past two years.
Taking to Twitter, the PPP leader slammed the prime minister for Pakistan’s “democracy & human rights suffering”, stating that unemployment was at an all-time high.
“Two years in power & @ImranKhanPTI has given us the worst economy in our country’s history, foreign policy failures from Kashmir to Saudi, democracy and human rights suffering, unemployment at an all time high, Transparency International has said corruption is higher than before,” he tweeted.
PML-N president and Opposition leader in the National Assembly Shahbaz Sharif said that the two years of the PTI government had been an unmitigated disaster from foreign policy to economic affairs to the governance of the country.
In a series of tweets, the PML-N president said Imran Khan’s “mismanagement of national affairs” had increased the woes of the masses. “People continue to pay heavy price for this failed experiment in political engineering,” Shahbaz said.
“In two years of PTI government: GDP growth rate registered a massive decline from +5.8% in 2018 to -0.45% in 2020, rendering millions of people jobless and pushing many more below the poverty line. Prices of sugar, wheat and medicines almost doubled. Per capita income went down steeply,” he noted.
