- Omar Ayub says this proof of both incarcerated leaders’ bravery, resilience
- Terms Rs3.08 per unit rise in power tariff as another bombshell for public
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Secretary General Omar Ayub on Wednesday congratulated Makhdoom Shah Mehmood Qureshi and Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi over their reappointments as PTI Vice Chairman and President respectively, which, he said, was a testament of their bravery, resilience, and a long association with PTI.
PTI Secretary General, in a statement, said: “Heartiest Congratulations to Shah Mehmood Qureshi over being reappointed as PTI Vice Chairman and Pervaiz Elahi as the party President.”
He said that it was a testament to their bravery, resilience, and a long association with PTI, as they both stood with Prime Minister Imran Khan and endured tremendous hardships.
Meanwhile, Omar Ayub lashed out the caretaker government for dropping another bombshell of inflation by jacking up power tariff by Rs3.08 per unit.
He said that Rs3.08 per unit electricity price increase was an inflationary bomb. “Electricity price is now effectively approx Rs85 per unit. These are the landmines put by PMLN, PPP, MQM, JUI-F and others PDM parties,” he added.
“I had been predicting this since last year. The people of Pakistan should reject these parties who have decimated the economy, brought back breaking inflation and increased electricity and gas prices to unprecedented levels,” Omar maintained.
PTI Secretary General reiterated that the only solution to navigate the country through current muddy water was to vote for PTI in the forthcoming general elections scheduled for February 8, 2023.
