RAWALPINDI  " Former federal minister and president of Awami Muslim League Sheikh Rashid Ahmad has said the coalition government during last four months gave the gift of sky-rocketing price hike to the country's masses. Talking to newsmen he said that before the general elections the ruling party was making commitments to provide roti, kapra and makan to the citizens but after coming into power it is snatching bread from the poor people. He said that they were criticizing the Q League government for flour shortage but now the Pakistan People's Party (PPP) and Pakistan Muslim League 'N' are ruling the country but attta is not available in the open market. Now who is responsible for it, he questioned. He said that food and petrol are two major problems of the people but both the departments are without ministers. About the 100 days performance of the government Sheikh Rashid said not a single point of the 100-day agenda has been fulfilled. He said the government, instead of giving relief to the common man, added to their miseries by bringing more inflation through withdrawing subsidies on essential item, including electricity, ghee, sugar, atta pulses and other utilities. He said nations face tough time but it is the leadership which copes with the crises with sagacity and valor. It is not clear who is running the economy, he added. It seems that nurses are doing the heart surgery, he feared. He said the number of 29 judges has been agreed among all the stakeholders but nation has not been told what would be tenure of Justice Iftikhar. About the impeachment of President Pervez Musharraf, he said the coalition government lacks the required number, adding that the most important things is economic situation and inflation and the government should focus on it instead of wasting time on non-issues.
