The lack of funds has forced the country to implement several austerity measures that have taken a toll on the common man as inflation has skyrocketed. ISLAMABAD: Pakistani Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has ruled out any talks between the government and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan unless the former premier acknowledges his wrongdoings and issues a public apology. Sharif made the statement while speaking to a crowd at a public rally at Minar-i-Pakistan in the early hours of Sunday. During his Tuesday speech to the National Assembly, Prime Minister Sharif noted that because of rising gas and electricity costs, millions of people now rely on food aid from the government. On Wednesday, a stampede that occurred during a free flour distribution in Pakistan’s Sahiwal left 56 people injured. According to officials, the incident occurred as a result of poor planning and management of the free wheat flour distribution. On Tuesday, stampedes occurred at free flour centers in four districts of south Punjab: Sahiwal, Bahawalpur, Muzaffargarh, and Okara. The other districts where deaths were reported are Fasailabad, Jehanian, and Multan. Police have been accused of causing mayhem at the centers by mistreating people. Armed guards accompany trucks carrying wheat and flour as they travel across Pakistan. With a battered economy as a result of low foreign exchange reserves and the effects of a significant flood still being felt, the government of Pakistan is struggling to meet the basic food needs of the populace. According to local media sources, the price of flour has increased to PKR3,000 per packet, and brawls and fights over flour are frequent on Pakistani streets. Social media has featured a number of videos of individuals fighting over wheat, however the most are unverified. Imran Khan slams government. Former prime minister Khan has denounced the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz government for its mismanagement at the free flour centers and held Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and Punjab caretaker chief minister Naqvi accountable for the deaths of innocent people. Khan said that the “government of thieves” has made people’s lives “a living hell.” (With help from organizations)
