PM Khan wants only to save his seat: Bilawal


THATTA, Jan 03 (DNA): Chairman Pakistan People’s Party Bilawal Bhutto
Zardari has said that any option of dialogue at national level is only
possible when the current anti-people and illegitimate puppet Prime
Minister steps down adding that Imran Khan wants only to save his seat.

PPP Chairman expressed these views while addressing a press conference
in Thatta after offering condolences to the family of the late Aijaz Ali
Shah Shirazi, former advisor to the Sindh Chief Minister. Murad Ali Shah
Chief Minister, Sindh, Provincial Ministers Nasir Hussain Shah, Suhail
Anwar Sial and other PPP leaders and legislators were also present on
the occasion.

He said that the only platform for the national dialogue would be the
Parliament, but before that the anti-people Prime Minister would have to
resign, so that political solutions could be found. Criticizing the
Federal government, he said that every section of the country, including
farmers, laborers, small traders, students and doctors, were fed up with
the present government, which was unable to send their children to
school or provide them with medicines. People have to bear the brunt of
the inflation and unemployment situation only because of incompetent and
incapable puppet Prime Minister.

He said that the Prime Minister should go who could not increase the
salaries and pensions of the people and reduce the inflation even in
electricity and gas bills. The people should have the opportunity to
choose someone who can solve their problems because Imran Khan has
dragged the country’s economy into shambles as our growth rate has
fallen negative and below than Bangladesh and Afghanistan’s, he added.

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that the PTI government has announced more
concessions for the construction and other mafias and there are bailout
packages worth billions of rupees for the rich, but it is not ready to
do anything for the poor.

The PPP Chairman strongly condemned the brutal killing of coal miners in
Balochistan and demanded that the government ensure the safety of the
workers and start implementing the National Action Plan, which the
present government has completely forgotten. “Ever since the current
government came to power, we have seen big terrorists fleeing from
custody,” he said. Such tragic incidents would not have happened if the
Prime Minister and Interior Minister had fulfilled their
responsibilities instead of making noise against the PDM, he added.

In response to a question, he said that PDM is united. The PPP’s Central
Executive Committee has ratified all the decisions of the opposition
coalition adding that the victory of the PPP is the victory of the PDM,
and the victory of the PDM is the pride of the people. Whether
by-elections or other matters, all decisions will be made by consensus.
We will remove the current puppet regime and hybrid system from power.
This puppet regime can only target measures like the 18th Amendment, the
NFC, and Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP), he stated.

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that the role of PPP has been at the
forefront in the struggle against the occupation of the islands, which
has also raised the issue from the platform of PDM. He pointed out that
despite Sindh and Balochistan producing the most gas, they were not
getting their fair share in supply. DNA
