"There's no concept of any deal […] the constitutional way is only to hold new elections," he stated

LAHORE (Dunya News) – Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) leader and Member of the National Assembly (MNA) Ahsan Iqbal said on Saturday that the incumbent government has taken sky-high loans which are unprecedented in the history of the state.

“The country is collapsing economically […] industries are being shut down while people are in a state of misery,” he said, while talking to the media.

The minister compared the tenures of the PML-N and the PTI-led federal government, and stated that the country had been progressing in the rule of the PML-N.

He accused the PTI of working on a “foreign agenda” as the government has not allocated funds for the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) during the passage of the budget [for the fiscal year 2019-20].

“The general public has been burdened due to incompetency of the current government,” he went on to say, adding that the PML-N has made deal only with the public and the Constitution.

“There’s no concept of any deal […] the constitutional way is only to hold new elections,” he concluded.
