MULTAN: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari Monday took the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) to task, saying that it had ruined the agriculture and textile sectors.
During a press conference in Multan, the PPP chairman said that the thrice elected PM had given nothing except mass transit. He added that southern Punjab had been deprived of its due rights.
“The PPP wants equal justice for all,” he said, adding the Sharif family was going through VIP accountability.
Taking a jibe at the ruling party’s claim of ending load shedding, Bilawal said perhaps load shedding had been eliminated from ‘Takht-e-Raiwind’.
He said that the masses were least bothered about the ouster of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif. “What they want is resolution of their problems,” added Bilawal.
Referring to the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), the PPP scion said, “We want such an election commission which is acceptable to all. The ECP should bring reforms itself.”
He said that it was the PPP that laid the foundation of Pakistan atomic programme and the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). Recounting some of the achievement of the PPP, he said that the party had always worked for the general public and launched the Benazir Income Support Programme.
He said that the Sindh government had revolutionized the health sector and free treatment was being provided to patients at state-of-the-art hospitals. He said that the PPP had not focused on a single city unlike the PML-N.
