Steps being taken to control price-hike: Dr. Firdous
GUJRANWALA: Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan has said the whole nation is still awaiting the answers of 18 questions asked by the government from Shahbaz Sharif.
Talking to media in Gujranwala, she said instead of responding to the money laundering allegations, PML-N spokespersons are trying to divert public attention by unduly criticizing Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government.
To a question about petition filed by Maryam Nawaz seeking her removal from the Exit Control List, she said Maryam has not approached the government. The court would decide the matter under law and constitution.
Dr Firdous said the PML-N spokespersons want to evaluate one-year performance of the PTI government, but they are not talking about those who remained in power generation after generation, plundered the national wealth and put the national economy on ventilator.
She said the government is fully aware of the problems confronted by the general public and necessary measures are being taken to control the price-hike.
Referring to the recently launched ‘Youth Entrepreneur Scheme’ by the Prime Minister, she said under the programme, the youth would be given business loans to make them self-reliant and useful members of the society.
