Islamabad: Minister for Information and Broadcasting Chaudhry Fawad Hussain said on Friday that Pakistan’s current economic woes were gift of a ten-year regime of Asif Ali Zardari and Nawaz Sharif.

On his official twitter handle, the minister said today if the government did not have to repay $ 12 billion in debt and interest this year that money could have been used to subsidize prices of oil and electricity.

The federal minister further said the government would have taken steps to protect the consumers from the adverse affects of rising prices of commodities in the international market if the former rulers had not ruined the national economy during their ten years of misrule.
