The leadership of the Isteqam-e-Pakistan Party (IPP) on Sunday highlighted the problems facing the public and expressed grave concern over rising inflation across the country.
In a statement, IPP chairman and veteran politician Abdul Aleem Khan accused the incumbent of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM)-led government’s seeming inability to contain peak inflation.
Aleem highlighted how the average citizen is now plagued with deepening problems as the prices of essential commodities have risen by 42 percent. Basic necessities such as rice, flour, sugar, cooking oil and legumes are out of reach for many.
He called attention to the economic crisis the country is currently facing, noting that the situation has deteriorated even after three and a half years of Pakistan’s Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) regime. The IPP president stressed that people are unhappy with the status quo as the country’s economy continues to sink.
He further emphasized that the government’s policies will only exacerbate the people’s already growing problems.
