Petroleum price hike is PPP’s New Year’s gift to public


LAHORE – PML-N senior leader Ashan Iqbal has condemned the hike in petroleum products and said this is New Year gift to people by the government.
In a statement issued here on Friday, PPP-led government had been involved in lavish spending, corruption and mismanagement and people had been bearing the brunt. “Common man’s life has turned worst due to government’s anti-people policies,’ he added.
Ahsan Iqbal deplored that if government implemented the suggestions recommended by PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif in his letter to President Zardari, neither people were overtaxed nor prices were increased over and again.
