Special Assistant to Prime Minister (SAPM) on Political Communication Shahbaz Gill said that there was a conspiracy behind the sugar crisis and Sindh government was also a part of it.
Addressing a press conference on Sunday in Lahore, he said that a crisis was created through conspiracy and now long march was announced over it. He further added that three sugar mills were closed in Sindh as part of the conspiracy.
It was the responsibility of provincial governments to control prices after the 18th amendment but the issue was politicized only for personal interests, he said. Sindh government was against the national interest of the country just for the sake of some political benefits. Gill was of the view that the sugar mills, which were supposed to start work in October, were deliberately closed by the provincial government.
“There is a wave of inflation in the whole world and middle-class is affected everywhere,” the SAPM said. He further added that Prime Minister Imran Khan was having a fight with the mafia.
Our government imposed more than Rs40 billion fine on the sugar mafia but they went to court and got a stay order. The government faced the wrath whenever there was a sugar crisis in the country but there was no one to check this sugar mafia and only PTI government took action against them, said Gill.
Talking about the Pakistan Democratic Movement, Gill said that the people of Pakistan rejected these leaders and they would be rejected again because they only looted the country.
