Minister for Information Fawad Chaudhry was seen passing sarcastic comments on Monday after being irked at a journalist’s question about the failure of some government policies.
Fawad Chaudhry was standing beside the Minister for Petroleum Ghulam Sarwar Khan, who announced the government’s decision to hike the gas tariff.
Interestingly, the information minister had last week announced that the government did not intend to increase gas prices.
He was visibly irked after the reporter questioned him about the failure of policies.
“Only our policies have failed,” Chaudhry remarked sarcastically. “It’s been only 19 days since we formed the government and all our policies have failed!”
He said the policies are being introduced. “Right now the Economic Coordination Committee (ECC) is governing and there has been only one meeting held so far.”
