PTI govt failed to provide relief to masses: Maryam Nawaz

Maryam Nawaz's remand extended till Sept 4 in Chaudhry Sugar Mills case

LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) vice president Maryam Nawaz on Saturday levelled heavy criticism against the government, accusing it of “creating divisions among the masses”.
Maryam Nawaz was addressing a press conference in Lahore. Responding to a question regarding the Commission of Inquiry that has been formed by the government to probe the rise in debts over the past decade, Maryam said that the commission should begin its investigation from 1999 instead of 2008. She also called for investigation into the loans taken over the past 10 months by the incumbent government.
“The nalaiq-i-azam (incompetent prime minister) has borrowed Rs5,000 billion in the first 10 months of his government. The total amount borrowed by the PML-N during its tenure was Rs10,000bn,” she said.
“Despite borrowing so much money, he has not spent a penny to provide relief to the masses […] That man is forming a commission [to investigate debts] today?”
“PML-N has several [development] projects to show for the loans it took that include power projects to produce 11,000 megawatts, Neelum-Jhelum, Kachhi Canal, state-of-the-art, world class motorways stretching to 1,700 kilometres. It also includes world’s most expensive operations to eliminate terrorism, like Raddul Fasad, Zarb-i-Azb and Karachi operation,” Maryam said.
“What do they have to show [for the loans they took]? Have they spent even a single rupee for the relief of the masses? Do they have that billion trees [tsunami project], that have not even been planted, to show for the money they borrowed? Or the BRT Peshawar project that has turned the city into ruins?”
“The loans that were spent on the masses will not be probed. Investigation will be held into the loans that have been wasted due to the incompetency of the [prime minister].”
