PPP will strongly resist presidential form of govt: Bilawal

Federal govt attacked provincial autonomy of Sindh by taking over hospitals: Bilawal

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Thursday urged Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi to accompany Prime Minister Imran Khan during his visits abroad as he has a habit of slip of the tongue.
He spoke to the media in Islamabad, and announced to oppose what he termed as “the Amnesty Scheme for the rich” and a deal with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) without taking the parliament into confidence.
He condemned what he believed was a misogynistic approach of the PM. “What message does it the remarks convey by calling a male ‘a female’?” he asked.
“If this budget doesn’t contain any relief, the people will protest themselves,” he said, adding that his party was standing by the 18th amendment and democracy, and would continue to do so.
He asserted that his party would strongly resist the presidential form of the government in Pakistan.
“People of Pakistan have been suffering through devastating consequences of high inflation,” he continued, adding that the economic state of the country is in front of everyone.
He maintained that under PTI’s tenure of the federal government, workers were being unemployed.
“The inflation has increased to such an extent that people are unable to manage essential commodities within their salaries,” he went on to say. “People are drowning in a tsunami of inflation. The Amnesty Scheme and relief are for the rich people only. Can the poverty-stricken people get relief?”
“What kind of system is this, what kind of government is this?” he further questioned.
Bilawal said their the government’s finance minister himself acknowledged that the people would cry out due to their economic policies.
“What kind of government is this that says there is no issue of inflation?” he asked. “Loan is being paid back by depriving workers of their jobs. In our tenure of the government, workers, farmers and poor people were happy.”
“People have nothing in their pockets, and you the government preferred to commit suicide instead of approaching IMF,” he concluded.
