QWP leader flays PTI govt for reneging on pledges

Peshawar

September 1, 2020

CHARSADDA: Qaumi Watan Party (QWP) provincial Chairman Sikandar Hayat Khan Sherpao said on Monday that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) rulers had claimed to establish a state on the Madina State model, but they had compounded the miseries of the people through their acts.

Addressing a gathering in Shodag Union Council here, he said that the PTI rulers had added to the country’s foreign debt. On this occasion, PTI workers, including Amir Zaman Khan, Mohammad Ameen Khan, Nasir Khan, Rabnawaz Khan and others announced joining the QWP. They reposed confidence in the QWP leadership and vowed to work for strengthening the part at the grassroots level. Sikandar Sherpao said inflation and unemployment had made life miserable for the have-nots, but the rulers were least bothered to provide them relief.

“The unprecedented inflation and price-hike have eroded the purchasing power of the people,” he said, adding that the people had become fed up with the government that has reneged on all the pledges made with the people during the election campaign. The QWP leader said the government failed to revive the economy despite borrowing heavily. He feared the flawed policies of the PTI government would push the country towards bankruptcy. “The PTI leaders lack the ability to steer the country out of the prevailing crises,” he said, adding that the rulers have been exposed in the last two years. He said that the country’s sovereignty had been mortgaged with the International Monetary Fund.
