ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb on Friday said that in the wake of the wheat and sugar shortages, Prime Minister Imran Khan and Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar should be summoned before an inquiry commission constituted to investigate the crises.
“The decisions taken by the prime minister and Punjab chief minister benefitted those who were hoarding and driving up the prices of sugar and wheat across the country,” she said. She added that people of Pakistan had been hurt by these decisions.
“Investors took advantage of the policies made by the incumbent government,” she said. “Those who made these policies are the real culprits, and should be summoned for investigations,” she remarked during a press briefing.
“The NAB-Niazi nexus has arrested the opposition and the media before inquiries into cases have been completed,” she noted, adding that the opposition and media persons were being kept in jail cells reserved for inmates on death row.
