LAHORE - Alleging that the government is protecting the real culprits behind petrol crisis, PTI leader Mehmoodur Rasheed has demanded that a judicial inquiry should be held to book the responsible people for creating chaos across the country.

Talking to the media on Sunday, Mehmood alleged that the petroleum minister was the real culprit behind the whole crisis but the government was protecting him and only a judicial inquiry could hold the culprits accountable.

“The government might have resolved half of the problems of the masses if it had focused on their issues instead of witch hunting of its political opponents,” he continued.

The PTI leader said that the ministerial incompetency forced masses to wait in long queues for several hours in order to get fuel. He remarked that all the promises of the ruling party during the election campaign of 2013 appeared false “which would never be fulfilled”.
