Karachi, April 12: PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Monday criticized the policies of the government, saying that his party has been criticizing the policies of PTI-IMF from day one.
Connected with party leaders, Bilawal held a news conference to discuss issues under discussion during the party’s recent Central Executive Committee meeting.
He spoke about the $500 million loan to Pakistan from the IMF. “This [IMF deal] is constantly targeting the poor people of Pakistan,” he said, adding that the government was putting a burden on the shoulders of the poor.
“Neither the details of PTI’s agreement with the IMF have been shared with the people or their representatives,” he said. “All the information we have is from IMF documents,” he added.
He accused the government of making a “historic attack” on the country’s economic independence, saying that through the draft State Bank of Pakistan Ordinance to be passed by the Center, the government was making sure that the central bank responded to the country. Don’t give
“The PPP Central Executive Committee has rejected the [ordinance] and we will launch a campaign against the PTI-IMF agreement in Ramadan as well,” he said.
‘Contradictory, contradictory policy on Kashmir’
The PPP chairperson said the government’s policy on the disputed Kashmir issue was “contradictory and disturbing”. He said that it was the responsibility of the government to represent the oppressed Kashmiris in times of need and make their voice heard.
He said that the BJP’s manifesto spoke of annexation of occupied Kashmir. “Nevertheless, during India’s election campaign, the Prime Minister of Pakistan said that the Kashmir issue would be resolved only if Modi won,” Bilawal stressed.
The PPP chairperson said that “history will remember” Prime Minister Imran Khan’s statement.
Criticizing the Prime Minister, he said, “History will remember that there was a Prime Minister who was incompetent and failed in this matter.”
Bilawal lamented that Prime Minister Imran Khan had reacted to India’s illegal move on August 5 by saying: “What can I do?”
“And suddenly Imran Khan remembered that Modi, for whom he campaigned throughout the election, was a fascist,” he said, mocking the Prime Minister.
He later pointed out that the government had initially said it wanted to trade with India but later rejected the move. “It seems that Khan does not make mistakes on Kashmir,” he said. He said, and he [repeatedly] makes mistakes on Kashmir.
“He [Imran Khan] sometimes says that he is the ambassador of Kashmir but then acts as a lawyer for Kulbhushan Jadhav.”
Bilawal said that when “a leader leads the country with the confidence of the parliament and the people”, then the country can deal with India and other world powers.
He said that the PPP CEC has decided to raise the issue of Occupied Kashmir again and again through its Kashmir Action Committee, adding that it was the party’s commitment to put Parliament on board in matters of the people. Make sure to keep
Census 2017 results
Bilawal said the CEC also discussed the results of the 2017 census, adding that the PPP had already accepted the results of the 2017 census.
He said that the resources of the country have been distributed among the provinces on the basis of the results of the census. Bilawal said the results of the 2017 census were “de jor” and not “de jor” figures.
“It doesn’t actually count the people who live there and the people who consume the data,” he said, adding that it was the PPP’s demand that de facto results be included in the census.
He demanded the government on the results of the census during a joint sitting of parliament. “A transparent census is necessary to empower the people of Pakistan,” he said.
Resignations from assemblies
He said the CEC had concluded that resignations from national and provincial assemblies should be “like an atom bomb”.
Bilawal said the PPP’s position that the opposition should not abandon the battlefield of Parliament and Senate had been confirmed.
He said that if the PPP had listened to other opposition parties and boycotted the Senate and by-elections, it would have damaged democracy.
“We did not give the PTI government an open field to form a two-thirds majority in the Senate,” he said, adding that when the PDM candidate won the Nowshera by-election, the government had its own “palm”. Lost to
“We will not undermine the benefits that the PPP has reaped after so many sacrifices,” he said. “When the PML-N was in power, we protected the parliament and today we will protect the parliament.”
He said that those who want to resign from the parliament should do so.
“But, no one should try to impose their will or dictation on any other political party,” he said.
