PPP to continue anti-govt campaign, Bilawal


KARACHI: PPP Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari on Sunday said that the PPP will continue its anti-government campaign until Prime Minister Imran Khan is ousted.

Addressing a rally at Karachi’s Bagh-e-Jinnah in commemoration of those martyred in 2007 in twin terror attacks in the city’s Karsaz area, Bilawal said that the countdown to the government’s end has begun.

He was accompanied by several other PPP leaders, including Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah, PPP Sindh chapter president Nisar Khuhro, and Bilawal’s sister Aseefa Bhutto-Zardari.

Bilawal criticised the incumbent PTI government and said that the masses are suffering from historic inflation which has been unprecedented in the country’s history.

Recalling how PM Khan had earlier said that growing inflation indicates that the premier is a thief, Bilawal said: “Pakistan has never seen a bigger thief in power than the current PM. This is the Naya Pakistan of Imran Khan where inflation is skyrocketing.”

He said that PM Khan “snatched employment opportunities from the people of Pakistan and took a U-turn on all his promises.”

“Whatever task Imran Khan undertook saw destruction instead of the promised tabdeeli (change),” he said.

The PPP chairman also criticised the government’s anti-encroachment drive as well as the introduction of the Single National Curriculum.

Bilawal went on to say that Imran Khan wants to turn the entire country into his [Corona Relief] “Tiger Force.”

He announced that the PPP will observe its foundation day, which falls on November 30, in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

‘Benazir returned to Pakistan dispute threats to life’

During his speech, Bilawal recalled the sacrifices rendered by his late mother — Shaheed Benazir Bhutto — and said that she was a brave woman who returned to Pakistan despite the threats to her life.

“Shaheed Benazir had returned to Pakistan to rid this country of dictatorship,” Bilawal said, adding that bomb blasts on PPP rallies could not dampen the spirits of the jiyalas (loyalists),” said Bilawal.

Prior to Bilawal, Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah delivered a speech and talked about the growing inflation in the country.

“PM Imran Khan takes wrong decision irrespective of who he consults,” said CM Shah.

He said that the incumbent government had made tall claims about its performance but failed to deliver, adding that Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari will rid the poor masses from the current government.

Following CM Shah, PPP Sindh chapter president Nisar Khuhro also addressed the rally.

Earlier, Senator Murtaza Wahab had shared a photo of the arrangements made at the venue.
