Political ‘leeches’ responsible for government’s decisions to increase gas prices, end Hajj subsidy: Fawad Chaudhry

These leeches have been sucking the nation's blood for the last 10 years, he said

 

 

The PTI government’s decision to increase gas prices and end Hajj subsidy was taken because of political “leeches” who have been ruling since the last 10 years, said Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry. 

“The decisions have been taken because of the leeches which have been sucking the nation’s blood for the last 10 years,” he wrote in a tweet on Monday. “Now, everyone is feeling the pain caused by them. It is important to remove them and kill them.”

He added, “If we don’t kill them then the dream of one Pakistan will never be fulfilled.”

The government approved the new Hajj policy for 2019 without any subsidy on January 31. Without a subsidy, the pilgrimage will cost people in the southern areas of the country Rs436,000 while people in the northern areas will pay Rs426,000.

The expense for Hajj has increased by Rs100,000 compared to last year.

The ministry of religious affairs had requested a subsidy of Rs45,000 but the government did not approve it.

    Government should not give subsidy on hajj but value of rupee must be restored. Cost of hajj must be controlled by cutting unnecessary expenses.

    Atleast govt sh left hajj expense scheme for poor people. Only poor people avail this govt opportunity to fulfil islami arkan. Govt attitude towards pakistani people same as u seen before. Even wine was allowed in pakistani madina riyasat. Its ridiculous act of dis govt.islam not permit these acts.

    His language is pathetic, his speeches should be censored. As a Minister he should behave sensibly.
