Khan: Opponents blame Imran Khan for rising fuel prices in Pakistan

Islamabad: Pakistani opposition Thursday accused the government of rising fuel prices.
Pakistan People’s Party (PP) Chairman Bilawal Bhuto-Zardari said Prime Minister Imran Khan had deceived the people of the country by raising the price of gasoline to the highest level in the country’s history.
“When the value of the dollar and the price of petrol are at their highest levels in history, everything is out of the reach of people,” said the PPP chief, Dawn reported.
“Billions of rupees collected from rising prices of petroleum products will be wasted by this incompetent PTI government,” he added.
Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) intelligence secretary Mariam Aurangzeb has urged Prime Minister Khan not to mock the misery people faced after the gasoline price was raised.
“Pakistani people don’t have the money to buy flour and sugar for their survival, and Imran wants them to buy horses and bicycles,” she added.
After the hike, the new price of gasoline in Pakistan will be 123.30 rupees per liter and 120.04 rupees per liter for diesel. The News reported that gasoline and diesel prices have risen by 5 rupees nationwide.
