MWM leader asks govt to bring down prices of essential goods

Karachi

May 14, 2019

Majlis-e-Wahdat-e-Muslimeen (MWM) head Allama Siraj has demanded from the government to bring down the prices of essential items.

In a statement issued here on Monday, he said that agreements or MOUs signed with the IMF were not the concern of the poor people of this country. He said it was in the larger interest of the masses to bring down the petrol, gas and power tariff, and this would be the real relief for the people.

The MWM head said prices of essential items were now beyond the reach of the common man and the federal ministers in press conferences continued to say that “you will very soon hear good news”.

The MWM leader said the rulers were not aware that industrialists had started removing workers and the industrial wheel had come to a halt. The daily-wage workers, he said, had no work to do and they were compelled to take food from charity houses and their families were starving.

He said Karachi provided jobs to people coming from different parts of the country, but these people were now leaving the city. He said that by saying all was good, nothing became good. He said the government announced some relief for the people, but this Ramazan it had dropped two bombs on the masses, one by increasing petrol prices and another by raising the power tariff.
