LONDON: Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry on Wednesday said the rise in price of dollar does not make a difference.
Speaking to the media in London, the information minister said, “It does not matter if the dollar price increases. The nation wants chickens who ate golden eggs to be held accountable.”
Stating that former president Asif Ali Zardari and ex-premier Nawaz Sharif “ate golden eggs”, the information minister questioned, “With what face are they lecturing us about the economy?”
“Nawaz and Zardari have fought their last election and their status is now similar to that of Yahya and Ayub Khan after removal from power,” he further said.
He continued, “An ordinance needs to be brought against them [Nawaz and Zardari] and their close friends so they account for the billions of rupees [they accumulated] in three months or all their money will be taken away. This way we will not even have to take loans.”
Chaudhry further said, “Our [Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s] greatest challenge is the promises that we made to the nation.”
