PTI, PAT sit-ins causing Rs 150b per day loss to economy

ISLAMABAD: The ongoing long marches and sit-ins have been causing financial losses to the tune of Rs 150 billion, on daily basis, to national economy besides rendering a large number of daily-wagers jobless.
According to Trade Development Authority Pakistan (TDAP) Chief Executive SM Munir, Azadi march of Tehreek-e-Insaf and Inqilab march of Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) were adversely affecting the national economy.
He said thousands of factories had altogether been closed down in the wake of a volatile political situation in the country.
Expressing concern over the current political impasse, he said that the national economy had been suffering badly for the past one month which was not being noticed by the top leadership of the PTI and PAT.
He said that it was high time for all political parties, especially the opposition, to resolve political issues and differences strictly in accordance with democratic values by holding parleys in the larger national interest.
