Hamza slams govt for hike in power tariffs


Opposition leader at Punjab Assembly Hamza Shehbaz on Friday lamented government for increasing inflation and said that government was ‘torturing masses’ by increasing electricity prices.
In a statement, Hamza said that government will mint more money from poor people by enhancing power tariffs. He said that circular debt has been doubled during PTI government’s first three years.
‘Increasing electricity prices is sheer injustice’ Hamza said, adding that government’s incompetency and inflation had bribed people.
He said that people must remember that Prime Minister Imran Khan was personally involved in increasing inflation and other economic turmoil.
He said that a gas shortage was also looming but government hadn’t planned anything yet to overcome it.
