ISLAMABAD - Once again the government has gone back on promises pledged with the nation during the holy month of Ramazan, said Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Monday.
The electricity problem is to some extent self-created, said Imran Khan. He continued by saying that the circular debt could have been reduced had the present government changed from using furnace oil to coal, which they did not. He added that a subsidy of over Rs 1 trillion has been paid, electricity tariff has been doubled but no solutions have been found to the electricity crisis.
In fact, said Khan, the energy crisis has been due to the present Prime Minister’s rental power scam that was meant to loot and plunder. It is because of corruption, said Imran, that every plan proposed by this government to solve the energy crisis has never been implemented.
Zardari as well as the PML-N leadership have one main purpose, according to Chairman PTI, and this is not to resolve the problem but to look for business opportunities. If this electricity situation remains unresolved, the ruling elite should be ready to face the wrath of the people, Khan added.
