PM Imran Khan reveals the way forward to massively depreciate US dollar
Rawalpindi: Addressing the inauguration ceremony of the Sir Syed Express on Wednesday, the Prime Minister said that if the Sharif family and the Zardari family bring back even half of their looted wealth, the dollar will depreciate and the rupee will appreciate in value. Blaming corruption for the debts of all government departments, such as Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) and Railways, the Prime Minister said that countries become poor because of corruption. Talking about the main opposition parties, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz and the Pakistan people’s Party, Imran Khan said that in the past ten years even the children and grandchildren of both the Zardari and the Sharif family became billionaires, while the nation was burdened with loans. “In a democracy, public office holders and leaders are answerable for their actions,” the Prime Minister said, adding that he will hold the culprits responsible for pushing the country into tough times. Addressing the leader of the opposition, Shehbaz Sharif, Imran Khan said that if your family and Zardari family bring back half the money they have taken abroad, the rupee will appreciate in value.
The premier also congratulated the Railways Minister, Sheikh Rasheed, and commended his efforts for making the transport system better. He also said that Sheikh Rasheed had reduced the debt of the Railways from Rs. 36 billion to Rs. 32 billion in ten months, despite increasing fuel prices and devaluation of Pakistan Rupee.
