Increasing power tarrif by Rs. 4.30 per unit is a shameful decision of PTI’s Government: Shazia Marri

Karachi, January 14, 2022 (PPI-OT): Central Information Secretary PPP-P and member of the National Assembly Shazia Atta Marri has said that the decision of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf led government regarding to increase in the power tarrif by 4.30 rupees per unit is a shameful and anti-people act and Pakistan Peoples Party strongly condemned dropping electricity bomb on the poor masses and demanded of the government to withdraw its decision. This she expressed in her reaction while slamming the government decision to rise the prices of electricity tarriff heron today.

Shazia Marri said that Imran Khan is looting the pockets of the people by increasing prices of the electricity tarriff and he has been implementing such decisions on the dictation of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in the country. She added that If Prime Minister Imran Khan would be remained in the power, people would have to sell their utensils in order to pay the electricity bills and even to light up a bulb in their houses. She claimed that the farmers march to be observed on 21st of January will shake the foundations of Imran Khan’s government.

She said that long march would be held against the worst economic policies of PTI-led government across the country on 27th of February under the leadership of chairman PPP Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and Imran Khan would be held accountable for his policies by the people as they will reach at Islamabad.

Current federal government has mortgaged the State Bank of Pakistan to the loan giant International Monetary Fund while the members of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government are being held accountable by the people of their constituencies. She added that people were hoping that Imran Khan would commit suicide instead of going to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for loans but he is dropping the inflation bombs on the people.
