June 25, 2020
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto has said that Prime Minister Imran Khan’s speech was not for the opposition or the masses, but the ‘selectors’. Expressing his views in the National Assembly on Thursday, he said that Imran Khan had launched the campaign of Indian PM Narendra Modi, saying that the Kashmir dispute will be resolved if he (Modi) became the prime minister. “Imran Khan’s foreign policy is the foreign policy of the puppet, which caused a great loss to the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project,” he maintained. He said that Imran Khan would have cared for each citizen had he been a selected prime minister. Bilawal Bhutto challenged Prime Minister Imran Khan to have a debate on his policies either in the House or if he wants, then any of the television channels. He said that Imran Khan had no plan to deal with Covid-19 and only opposed lockdown. “The lockdown was the time to increase the health capacity of the country, lockdown was the time to equip your hospitals, lockdown was the time to increase ICU beds in the hospitals, it was the time to plan to protect the lives and the health of the people,” he added. He said that Sindh is still doing the most tests according to its population and the patients’ recovery rate is the highest in Sindh. He warned that if the situation persists due to the failed policies of the prime minister. “No province in the country would be able to take the burden of the number of patients.” The PPP chairman said: “India has been elected as a non-permanent member of the Security Council of United Nations securing 184 votes out of 192 and prime minister calls it a good foreign policy? Our relations with China were established by Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto. During the PTI government, China complained about irresponsible statements about CPEC.” Bilawal Bhutto said that the prime minister is very fond of giving lectures but does not apply the things he preaches on himself. “In the history, this PTI government has taken more loans than any government and it is also a fact that we achieved the lowest growth rate during this government. Imran Khan is trying to hide behind the Covid-19 pandemic but he cannot. The economy was already sagging before the pandemic as has been claimed by government documents,” he maintained. Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that locust is attacking crops all over the country and the government is still not able to control it despite the fact that they had been warning the government of this threat. “Now, Pakistan will be facing the threats of health, lives and food security. The PPP will not leave the people of Pakistan alone,” he vowed.
