Minister for Information, Fawad Chaudhry was seen passing sarcastic comments in Islamabad on Monday after being irked at a journalist's question about failure of some government policies.

Fawad Chaudhry was standing besides the Minister for Petroleum, Ghulam Sarwar Khan, who announced the government's decision to hike the gas tariff.

Interestingly, the information minister had last week announced that the government did not intend to increase gas prices.

He was visibly irked after the newsman questioned him about the failure of policies.

"Only our policies have failed," Chaudhry remarked sarcastically. "It's been only 19 days since we formed the government and all our policies have failed!"

He said the policies were being introduced. "Right now the ECC is governing and there has been only one meeting held so far."
