PML (Q) gives five-point agenda to govt

The Pakistan Muslim League (Q) on Wednesday gave the government’s economic team its five-point action plan to counter the economic difficulties being faced by the country.

The PML (Q) agenda included: provision of immediate relief to the masses, devising energy strategy, improving law and order situation in Karachi and Balochistan, elimination of corrupt practices, end to terrorism and review the foreign policy.

Briefing the journalists after the meeting with the government team, PML (Q) President Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain said that the government could implement this plan within days without spending even a single penny from the national kitty.

“Our agenda is purely on technical basis and rising above the party-lines, we have suggested the government a comprehensive strategy to tackle the economic crisis. If the capital flight from the country is plugged and all money invested or kept in foreign banks is recovered, the country would have no need to seek loans from the IMF or World Bank,” he asserted.

Giving outlines of his party’s agenda, PML (Q) Secretary General Mushahid Hussain Sayed warned the ruling party of a Tunis-like public rebellion if the matters were not redressed immediately.

He said his party had asked the government to devise an ‘effective and doable’ price control policy to be implemented by federal and provincial governments to provide immediate relief to the people.

On law and order and internal security, Mushahid urged the government to undertake efforts to stop target killings in Karachi and Balochistan forthwith.
