Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif addresses the nation. The prime minister issued that statement a day after the government raised fuel prices, with petrol reaching Rs233.89 — unprecedented in the country's history. Taking to his Twitter handle, PM Shahbaz said, "Acutely aware of the impact that a fuel price hike causes. Govt is left with no choice but to raise the prices due to the IMF deal that the PTI govt signed. Will take the nation into confidence on the specifics of the IMF-PTI deal soon."
