PTI leader Shahzad Qureshi has said that the government has once again dropped a petrol bomb on the people. Increasing the prices of petrol and diesel at a time when the people are suffering from inflation is the extreme of cruelty, he said, adding that the “fake government” does not care about the people, and unemployment figures are increasing due to these decisions.

Qureshi urged that the government should stop its extravagance, withdraw privileges from ministers and advisers and provide immediate relief to the people. Instead of following strict IMF conditions, imports should be reduced and exports should be increased, he said.
