ISLAMABAD - Pakistan Peoples Party former foreign minister Hina Rabbani Khar on Tuesday hit out at PTI government in Islamabad.

She slammed the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) for reluctance on giving the chairmanship of the Public Accounts Committee to the opposition.

Speaking in the National Assembly, Khar said the government can’t make tall claims about accountability while refusing the opposition to head the committee, which, among other tasks, is authorised to examine Auditor General’s reports for ministries, divisions, corporations, etc.

The former foreign minister also stated that the government has hiked up gas and electricity prices but claims that it won’t affect the poor. “This is a lie,” she said. link link

Why doesn’t Finance Minister Asad Umar, who used to criticise tax hikes, not decrease taxes now, Khar asked.
