The economy of Pakistan is estimated to have grown 2.4 per cent in the current year. The average expansion in the economy over the past three years is down to 2.6 percent a year with the population growth rate of around 2.1 per cent. The average growth rate of per capita income is less than 0.3 percent since 2008 which is the lowest increase since 1951. The poor people of Pakistan have been facing problems like energy deficit which has reached its highest point. Political leaders should strengthen the economy instead of blaming each other.
