Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan expressed concern over deteriorating law and order situation, corruption and price hike and urged the rulers to “stop hoodwinking people.”
Addressing a press conference in Dera Nawab Sahib, he alleged that 40,000 innocent lives were lost and $50 billion wasted because the rulers followed the “dictates of foreign masters”.
He criticised the government’s purported plan to restore Nato supply routes. Imran also accused the leaders of pocketing debt money saying that
despite such hefty amounts of aid, neither the economy nor the standard of living of Pakistanis has improved.
He added that ‘imprudent’ government policies have already pushed the country into a quagmire of crises.
