Rulers must stop looking at Karachi through the lense of prejudice to check unprecedented inflation, Mustafa Kamal
June 4, 2022
Karachi, June 4: Pak Sarzameen Party Chairman Syed Mustafa Kamal on Saturday said that the rulers should stop looking at Karachi through the lens of prejudice, in order to check the flood of inflation and unemployment.
By curbing the incredible corruption in the ministries of education and health, the government can not only provide great relief to the common man but also can improve the overall economic situation.
From the common man to the industrialist, everyone is deeply effected by inflation and lack of basic amenities. Industrial units are shutting down due to non-supply of water, gas and electricity therby harming the whole of Pakistan. The hyper inflation is causing public outrage which is leading to anarchy, which can be exploited by the hostile forces.
Due to economic and political instability, industries are shifting abroad. Despite the massive presence and mobilization of police and Rangers in the city, the hydrant mafia is stealing daily billions of rupees water from the water lines and selling it to the industrialists and the people, due to which not only the cost of doing business has increas exponentially but also due to the closure of most of the industrial units, thousands of workers are becoming jobless on a daily basis.
Due to the poor condition of education in academic institutions and treatment in government hospitals, the common man is forced to pay atleast Rs. 25,000 to 30,000 per month in private educational institutions and private hospitals. This grim situation has deprived the white collar segment of society of even one time bread. If the rulers could only stop the ongoing leakages in the education and health sectors, then a white collar class can feed their children during the global recession by saving the expenses incurred on private educational institutions and private hospitals. He expressed these views while addressing a public coordination campaign at UC-27 Landhi in connection with NA-240 by-elections. PSP candidate from NA-240 Shabbir Ahmed Qaim Khani also addressed on the occasion. Syed Mustafa Kamal further said though the current spate of inflation is the result of decisions and agreements of the former incompetent rulers but nevertheless it is the responsibility of the incumbent government to provide relief to the people and industrialists.
The ruling PPP which has been in power for about 14 years and its ally MQM, which has bargained the mandate of Karachi for its personal gains are responsible for the devastation of Pakistan’s economic engine.
If the nation gives us a chance, we will fix the system because we know how to fix it. The people of Landhi and Korangi have no other option but PSP.
