“We want to facilitate the government in every regard. I have few suggestions for the government in these testing times. I think government should reduce interest rates by 3 to 4 percent. Government can save Rs. 80 billion by reducing the interest rate.  Prices of petroleum products should also be reduced by at least Rs. 70. Those who have utility bills less than 5 thousand should be given relief,” he said.

“Government should negligence at Tafton border which resulted in spike in Coronavirus cases in Pakistan. Had government made separate quarantine centers, situation would not have deteriorated.
