To another query about the populist measures undertaken by ruling government in the aftermath of its drubbing in the recently concluded parliament polls, Omar said that it was being done to ward off peoples ‘dissatisfaction’
“The whole idea of being defeated in an election is a message from people that they are dissatisfied with some of the measures you have taken. Having accepted defeat in the election and having recognized that there must be elements of dissatisfaction that need to be addressed and that is what we are doing,” Omar said, underling that every government is expected to work on the expectation of people.
