Lahore: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that Punjab should adopt the same system of local institutions as Sindh.
Speaking at a ceremony in Punjab Province, he said that the people of Pakistan are currently in a difficult situation. The government is snatching roofs from the poor. People know that PPP is hiring people everywhere.
He went on to say that instead of providing 10 million jobs, it was better to say that these jobs were taken away. The people want to get rid of the government. The workers will be the strongest arm in my struggle.
Bilawal said that PPP has always distributed the power and never snatched it. Zardari was the most powerful civilian president; Zardari gave all powers to the parliament. Bilawal said that he wants powers to be given to provinces and local body system to be strengthened. Murad Ali Shah has given a new local body system in Sindh.
The economic condition has never been this bad in the history of Pakistan. The economy of the country is worse than the times when East Pakistan was separated and during the war. The incumbent government is anti-people while on the other hand, PPP is a party of the poor and a people-friendly party. Bhutto had given 5-Marla Scheme in 1970.
Earlier on Jan 5, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari had said that the scrutiny report regarding the foreign funding case has unveiled an ugly corrupt face of Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan.
The PPP leader said that Imran Khan took oath of speaking the truth yet hid Pakistan Tahreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) bank accounts from the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP). He further said that Imran Khan taunted everyone of corruption whereas the “selected prime minister” has himself embezzled millions.
Bilawal Bhutto also claimed that the prime minister ransacked the country under the guise of a so-called anti-corruption campaign. He added that the devastated national economy proves that the current government is corrupt.
