LAHORE: PML-N lawmaker Hina Pervaiz Butt has moved a resolution to the Punjab Assembly demanding the resignation of prime minister Imran Khan. Hina said that Prime Minister Imran Khan’s wrong policies have led the country to the verge of bankruptcy, therefore, he should immediately resign.
In the resolution, the lawmaker has said that the house has serious reservations on the report of The Economist which states that Pakistan has become the third expensive country in the world.
“There is huge inflation in Pakistan after Argentina and Brazil in the long list of 200 countries in the world. The wrong policies of the incumbent PTI government have created a storm of inflation in the country and poverty has been increasing fast,” the resolution reads.
The lawmaker says that the PTI government changed four finance ministers and they all failed to put the country’s economy on the right track. The wrong decisions of Prime Minister Imran Khan have led the country to bankruptcy.
“Therefore, the house demands that PM Khan should immediately step down so that the country could find the right direction,” she demanded in a resolution submitted in the Punjab Assembly.
