Former Foreign Minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Shah Mehmood Qureshi has said that if the by-elections were rigged, the situation would be similar to Sri Lanka.
Former Foreign Minister and PTI leader Shah Mehmood Qureshi while talking to media said that the government has increased the prices of petrol and gas while the prices of ghee, oil and other commodities have gone up and inflation has skyrocketed.
He said that the government was responsible for inflation in the country and the rulers should correct their course. The by-elections should be transparent but if the by-elections were rigged then the situation would be like in Sri Lanka.
Shah Mehmood Qureshi said that the RO investigated the complaint of Zain Qureshi. PML-N candidates were holding a meeting in the presence of government officials. At present, the eyes of the entire nation are on the Election Commission.
He said that the country’s economy was under severe pressure at the moment and the textile sector had been shut down, which would create a further storm of inflation.
