LAHORE (92 News) – Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Sunday said that the incumbent government accepted the all conditions of International Monetary Fund (IMF).
Addressing the PPP workers in Lahore, Bilawal Bhutto claimed that the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and the Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) considered the progress of the rich people as development in the country.
“The economic policies of PTI, PML-N and PPP are completely different, adding that the former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s government had also not spent on the poor people. “We want to bring poor-friendly policy,” he added.
“The incompetent rulers have ruined the lives of masses and creating the hurdles for laborers and weak segment of the society,” he maintained. He further said that the incompetent rulers cannot run country and economy, adding that the situation in the country is worsening.
“The burden of inflation on the public has been increased. The government has given nothing but unemployment and inflation to public,” the PPP chairman said.
Earlier, PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto
has said that Islam puts a great emphasis on the rights of women.
Talking to the media on Thursday, he said that the PPP had given the rights to women.
“The first female judge was appointed during the PPP tenure. Moreover, the Benazir Income Support Program was launched during the PPP government in 2009. The international bodies have lauded the program. About 1.5 million women benefitted from the project,” he said.
Bilawal Bhutto said that farmers and labourers should get the equal rights. “The Sindh government approved a six-month leave for a woman giving birth to a baby,” he added.
He said that critics used to say that a woman cannot become the prime minister. “Those who say Aurat March should not be held. I say that it will be held at all costs,” he added.
The PPP chairman said that no one can oppose a woman if she wants to join a profession. “We demand that the federal and provincial government should provide security to Aurat March,” he added.
He said that they will make the ‘selected’ prime minister flee like Musharraf and Zia were forced to flee.
