Masses, traders pinning high hopes on Freedom March: PEW

The Pakistan Economy Watch (PEW) on Sunday said the masses and business community has pinned high hopes on the JUI-F led anti-government “Freedom March”.

The masses and business community distressed due to high inflation, surging unemployment, and other issues are hoping relief in the aftermath of the protest, it said.

Masses and the business community has run out of patience as the failures of the government on all the fronts and economic stagnation has left them confused and upset, said Dr. Murtaza Mughal, President PEW.

Masses think that they have been cheated in the name of a change and now the only way to get relief is through agitation, he added.

Dr. Murtaza Mughal said that the recent wave of popularity of PML-N is not due to the efforts of leaders of the part but the blunders of the current government which has made life very difficult for everyone.

He noted that now politicians are being pushed to the wall on unwise changes while those holding important offices are busy in adding fuel to the fire.

Investors are facing uncertainty while the traders are on the streets protesting against taxation measures.

A large number of traders believe that the government should first target the wealthy industrialists and landed nobility before pursuing them which will leave them with no option but to pay their taxes honestly.

The protest is likely to be a major showdown between the Government and the opposition.
