People will witness reduction in inflation within week: Prime Minister

Islamabad, October 24, 2020 (PPI-OT):Prime Minister Imran Khan says the people would witness reduction in inflation within a week. In an interview with a private news channel, he resolved that the government would not make its people face inflation at the hands of powerful cartels. He said the wheat crisis was caused by reduced crop production due to untimely rains during the last two years.

The Prime Minister vowed to bring PML-N leader Nawaz Sharif back to the country and put him into jail. He said the government is in contact with British authorities and is trying to get Nawaz Sharif deported from the UK. Imran Khan also reiterated his resolve of not giving any NRO to the opposition leaders.

He said former President Pervez Musharraf by giving the NRO to PML-N leadership and allowing Nawaz Sharif to go into exile in Saudi Arabia for 10 years had committed a mistake. Imran Khan reiterated that Nawaz Sharif enjoys the support of Indian and Israeli lobbies being represented by Hussain Haqqani in the United States. He said the opposition is not worried about the country or democracy but they are worried because the present government has put Pakistan on the right direction.
