LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan on Thursday said that the former rulers have destroyed the economy to build their empires.
Addressing the traders during a ceremony in Lahore, Khan criticised the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) saying, “Development becomes possible only through [good] governance. These [corrupt] rulers have left the country deep in debt. But they are not worried, because their wealth lies abroad,” said the PTI chief. Pointing out that the rupee had slid behind currencies of other South Asian nations such as India and Bangladesh, Imran lamented that the depreciation would hike inflation and the cost of imports.
He said that unemployment remained one of the country’s biggest problems and that he would work to generate employment opportunities for the youth by fueling investment.
“The leader who lives abroad cannot understand the suffering of masses,” condemned Khan.
The PTI chairman went on to say that the leader who demands their citizens to bring money back to Pakistan but sends his own in foreign accounts can never think about the country.
“PTI will make a joint policy with traders. Our government will lower the taxes so that maximum people can enter the tax net. The problem of Pakistan is unemployment. In the past years, minimum investment has been witnessed. US ‘s economy went up after Trump lowered the taxes,” asserted Imran Khan.
