GUJRAT/LALAMUSA: Chairman PPP Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Monday criticized Prime Minister Imran Khan for his tirade against the European Union ambassadors’ letter, which they had demanded of the Pakistan govt to condemn the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

While addressing a public rally in Lalamusa, Bilawal Bhutto said European Union is Pakistan’s biggest trading partner adding a lot of Pakistanis from district Gujrat were residing various EU countries.

He said these Pakistanis are sending in huge foreign exchange. Severing of relations with the EU states would damage Pakistani economy, he added.

He said: “If you have the courage to dissolve assemblies before we arrive in Islamabad, come down in fresh polls and compete with us; you will get to know the public’s response,”Bilawal reiterated his onslaught against the government’s IMF deal, alleging that such an agreement was the reason for the spike in petroleum prices, electricity tariffs and basic commodities’ prices. He claimed that the PM Imran Khan was panicking, which was reflected in the derogatory remarks he was using against the opposition leadership. The PPP chairman claimed that his party had steered the country “out of the crisis” during their rule. He accused the government of providing relief to the rich instead of the poor.
