Employees upset due to rising petrol price, sought permission to take donkey-cart to the airport
Donkey car should be allowed to be brought to the airport
Raja Asif Iqbal, who lives in Islamabad, has written a letter to the Civil Aviation Authority stating that he is unable to come in a motorized private vehicle as the price of petrol has hit a record high. So they should be allowed to bring their donkey cart to the airport.
The spokesperson said, this is a media stunt.
Iqbal has been serving in the Civil Aviation Authority for 25 years and is currently working at Islamabad International Airport. Civil Aviation Authority spokesperson Saifullah Khan, however, said that the letter was simply a media stunt. People do this to become news in the media. In fact, fuel allowance is given to every employee. He said that they are provided with pick-and-drop service. A metro bus service is also available to the airport staff.
Imran Khan curses the government
It is worth noting that the Pakistan government has once again increased the fuel prices on Friday. Petrol in Pakistan is now getting Rs 209.86 per liter and diesel Rs 204.15 per liter. Former Prime Minister Imran Khan has cursed the government on the rising price of oil. He said that the country’s leaders do not want to buy cheap oil from Russia because they are afraid of America.
Justified the increased oil price
Finance Minister Mifta Ismail blamed former Prime Minister Imran Khan for the rising oil prices. He said that the country cannot be allowed to go bankrupt due to wrong decisions of the previous government led by Imran Khan, as international prices were rising and the government was losing around Rs 120-130 billion per month on petroleum subsidies.
