Lahore, October 30, 2019 (PPI-OT): Jamaat-e-Islami Amir Senator Sirajul Haq has said the PTI came into power with a slogan that it will ensure provision of efficient and inexpensive justice to all but it failed to fulfill its promise in 14 months of rule.

Therefore, he said, the government could save its skin only if it ensure across the board accountability.

He said the national exchequer faced loss to billions of rupees due to strike of the business community. He said the prices of petroleum prices were going down in the world but the process was reverse in Pakistan where the OGRA sent a summary of increase in POL prices on every month.
