People should eat one roti instead of two: Mushtaq Ghani

April 07, 2019

PESHAWAR: Speaker Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly Mushtaq Ghani has said that with the country undergoing a financial crisis, the public should survive by eating one roti instead of two. During the Khyber Union of Journalist’s programme ‘Meet the Press’, the provincial assembly speaker stated with the colossal debt that the country is presently under and the crisis it is going through, the public should survive by eating one roti instead of two. He further added that soon a time will come where they will get a chance to eat not one or two but ‘two and a half rotis’.

“If a person who eats two rotis in a day, brings the number to one then the next day he can afford to eat two to three roties,” he stated. Soon after his statement, ample criticism made way towards the speaker as social media users were unable to comprehend the logic behind his statement while many questioned how many rotis he has given up in this time of inflation.—Agencies
