Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari, while addressing a public gathering at the Aga Khan Shahi Polo Ground on Sunday (Nov 18), once again criticized the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) government, adding that life and properties are not safe in Naya Pakistan. “In Naya Pakistan, our life and property are not safe. Those wanting to build a new Pakistan had shaken the country’s foundations”.
Like other opposition leaders he also criticized the Prime Minister’s Imran Khan’s U-turn statement and said “PTI had taken more than a hundred U-turns before the completion of its first hundred days”. “Consultation, tolerance and parliamentary ethics will not work in ‘Naya Pakistan’, rather whatever Khan sahib would say only that would happen,” he lambasted.
Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday (Nov 16) opens up about his “U-turns” quality, which is criticized by opposition several times. In an interaction with journalists at the PM house, he said that “a leader who does not take U-turns according to the requirements of the situation is not a real leader”.
Bilawal promised to keep struggling for “strengthening Pakistan and putting an end to exploitation of masses”. “My struggle is your struggle. This is a struggle for the rule of the people,” the PPP chairman said.
“Peoples Party gifted them Karakoram Highway and subsidy on wheat,” Bilwal said. “Shaheed Benazir Bhutto established Civil Secretariat here, brought judicial reforms.” “Your fund was reduced in the beginning of this change. Rs4 billion were cut from Gilgit-Baltistan fund and 18 projects were ended,” he told. “The subsidy on wheat was ended and the quantity of flour that previously cost Rs1200 now costs Rs3000.”
He said the current rulers promised 10 million jobs, but they were depriving the masses of employment. “They promised five million houses, but instead they are razing mud houses and shops.” Bilawal said the economy is headed towards a collapse, while inflation is at its peak. “What kind of ‘Naya Pakistan’ is this which is taking us to economic downfall,” he asked.
