LONDON: Dollar hike does not matter, nation wants to know about the chickens who ate golden eggs, said Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry, on Thursday.
Speaking to media in London, the information minister was asked to opine about the prime minister’s ‘chicken and egg plan’. Fawad Chaudhry responded by saying that one should not be concerned about the dollar hike.
“The increase in the price of dollar does not make any difference,” he said. “The nation wants to know more about the chickens who ate the golden eggs,” he added.
Fawad Chaudhry lashed out at the PML-N and the PPP leadership, saying that there should be a system in place where leaders of the two parties are held accountable for their performance.
“How can they even dare to lecture us on economy?” he asked. “The status of the PPP and the PML-N leaders is like Ayub Khan and Yahya Khan after they lost power.”
Fawad Chaudhry called for an ordinance to be brought against corrupt leaders so that the money they minted could be recovered.
“We won’t even have to take loans then,” he said.
