  • Federal minister Asad Umar announces car sales went up this year.
  • However, his brother and PML-N leader Mohammad Zubair does not seem to be satisfied with the statement.
  • Economy was growing at 5.8% in 2018 and look what a mess it is now, says Zubair.


Federal Minister for Planning and Development Asad Umar Wednesday took to Twitter and announced car sales went up this year as compared to the last; however, his brother and PML-N leader Mohammad Zubair did not seem satisfied with the statement.

"Car sales up 31% vs last year in first 9 months of this fiscal year. Private sector credit off-take up 34%," the federal minister said.

"Jul to feb large scale manufacturing growth up 7.5%. Widespread growth visible while running a current account surplus, which unlike past makes growth sustainable," Umar added.

"This should all add up to a reasonable growth of around 4-5% but it’s going to be just 1.5% - one of the lowest in our history & lowest in the region," Zubair said.

"Simple economics hai (this is simple economics). Inflation is up, unemployment up & so is poverty. Economy was growing at 5.8% in 2018 & look what mess now," he added.

Following the brother's discussion, people joined in on the conversation and responded.
