Karachi: Former Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi says that nowhere in the world is petrol getting less than the purchase price, difficult decisions will have to be taken to manage the economy.

Talking to media after appearing in the accountability court in Karachi, former prime minister and PML-N central leader Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said that the devastation of 4 years could not be improved in days. Imposed on and wreaked havoc in all spheres.

He said that the value of dollar would be strengthened by the government, adding that caretaker setup could not be established in the country for a long time.

Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said that constitutional positions should fulfill their constitutional responsibilities. Government officials said that they cannot work in the presence of NAB, it is now up to the government to decide whether to keep NAB or abolish it.

Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said that if NAB remained then the country could not function so the solution was to end NAB but not to end opposition cases. Install cameras in the courts to see what the NAB is doing. Let there be cases against politicians, so as not to give the impression that we abolished NAB for our cases.
