Sajid Turi MNA

Mr Sajid Turi speaks about the Pakistan current situation and said that Federally Administered Tribal Areas are merged with Khyber Pakhtunkhwa but PTI Government is fails to provide proper facilities or development to public and they are facing challenges & difficulties on every step. Mr Sajid Hussain Turi criticised the PTI government for ignoring its election manifesto in the budget on creation of jobs, construction of houses, and investment in the education sector.

Mr Sajid Hussain Turi said that people had expected decrease in the prices of edible and non-edible items after the PTI’s election to power, especially when ‘economists’ had been made the federal and provincial finance ministries, but they’re disappointed after being further burdened with higher prices.

MNA Sajid Turi said that PTI had made the people’s life miserable by increasing the prices of electricity, gas and edible items. He said that PPP is the only party standing always for the rights of Fata and its people. We are waiting for key Fata reforms and I appeal to Overseas Pakistanis to register their votes as soon as they can so we can pressurise Government for good Regulation & implementation of Fata Reforms.
