Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader and former Prime Minister (PM) Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has said that dissolving assemblies is not the solution to the current economic crisis in the country.

Speaking outside the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) office in Islamabad, he said, “The government is working hard to get the situation under control” and urged that political parties should sit together to derive a solution.

Khaqan said that the decisions need the support of institutions and the people because Pakistan is everyone’s responsibility.

“Our country has always had unconstitutional intervention in politics. That intervention also plays a role in getting us where we are today,” he added.

“This destruction started four years ago when the PTI government came to power,” he claimed. “Today, Imran Khan is the sole person responsible for the economic turmoil in Pakistan. You cannot expect a government to immediately fix things that he spoiled.”

The PML-N leader’s statement has come when the dollar rate is at its peak. This spell of the dollar’s persistent rise against the rupee began last week.

Earlier, it was reported that government would either dissolve the assemblies or increase the petrol prices in the upcoming days.

It was said that if the government does not increase the fuel prices Pakistan may face a much worse situation than what is happening in Sri Lanka.
