Karachi. 19.10.2015: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) MNAs Imran Zafar Leghari, Roshan Din Junejo and Syed Ghulam Mustafa Shah while expressing serious concern on proposed increase in POL prices fromNovember 1 this current year warned the PMLN’s federal government should avoid imposing anti-masses policies on dictation of IMF or else the masses would lose their faith and trust in politics, politicians and governments of political parties. It is obvious that the federal government has decided not to listen to the masses and keep imposing anti-masses policies.
In a statement issued from PPP Media Cell Sindh, they said that though the POL prices had declined to the lowest level in history but the people of Pakistan are denied of the good benefits of it because the IMF does want to see a prosperous Pakistan and well-being of the people of Pakistan. Henceforth, the incumbent federal government of the PMLN has pledged to the IMF to fulfill its agenda.
The federation of Pakistan has since long been victimizing the smaller provinces and despite the passage of the 16th constitutional amendment, the provincial autonomy is grossly violated, which in future would affect the harmony. The people are very angry on anti-masses policies of the PMLN’s federal government, which might be vent in form of agitation one day.
They said the federal government had already imposed decisions on people of Sindh that proved devastating in which the federal government had imposed 1 direct 30 percent increase in residential consumers’ electricity tariff and now an increase of Rs.2 in POL prices is being proposed that might be effective from November 1, 2015.
They warned the federal government to avoid actions that suppress the provincial autonomy and agonising the poor masses of the province because these actions would never bring good results in future.
