Imran, Qadri sit-ins inflict ‘billions of dollars’ loss on fragile economy: Khawaja Asif

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has lost “billions of dollars” due to the recent anti-govt sit-ins led by Imran Khan and Tahir-ul Qadri, said Defence Minister Khawaja Asif.

Addressing a press conference, he accused both Imran Khan and Tahirul Qadri of damaging the economy and attempting to derail ties with China.

Defence Minister Khawaja Asif said that due to sit-ins and protests led by Imran Khan of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Tahir-ul Qadri of Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT), several projects could not be started.

He also held the two leaders responsible for the cancellation of a visit by Chinese President Xi Jinping, when the government expected to sign agreements worth $ 34 billion.
