ISLAMABAD: Spokesperson of Finance Ministry Muzzammil Aslam has claimed that he wrote Prime Minister Imran Khan’s last speech.
In a video clip, it can be heard that he is saying people called me to after the PM’s address to say ‘it seemed Muzzammil Aslam was speaking.’
Earlier, Muzzammil Aslam said that increase in demand for sugar and delay in crushing of sugarcane caused a hike in the price of the commodity.
Muzzammil Aslam, while addressing a press conference, said that the government has had sugar stock for 22 days but the Sindh government is not asking the Centre for cheap sugar nor is it starting crushing of sugarcane.
He said that price of sugar is a provincial matter and because of that Punjab government raided several warehouses which were hoarding sugar which reduced the price of the essential commodity but on the other hand, the Sindh government did not take any such action and is just busy in blaming the federal government for the hike.
