KARACHI, June 3: Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party Bilawal Bhutto Zardari blasted Nawaz Sharif and his Ministers for calling the masses thieves and depriving them from electricity amid sizzling heat wave in the holy month of Ramzan.
The PPP Chairman was addressing the Party leaders and workers at an Iftar Dinner hosted by PPP Sindh at Chief Minister House today. PPP Sindh President Nisar Ahmed Khuhro, Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah, Ministers, Senators, MNAs, MPAs and Party office-bearers from all the districts of the province attended the Iftar Dinner.
He said that people of Pakistan are being tormented through load-shedding of long durations and those protesting against it are being labeled as thieves just to hide PML-N government’s own failures to generate more electricity and improve transmission and distribution. “Load-shedding is in the entire country not just in the corners of the country and protests are also being held around the country,” he added.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari pointed out that there was no electricity in Sindh but Takht-e-Raiwind is being supplied uninterrupted supply with zero load-shedding.
PPP Chairman pledged that his Party will end the load-shedding once for all after coming into power in next general elections as it has envisaged huge plans to meet the power needs of Pakistan for several future decades.
He said that Nawaz government has not only failed on internal as well on external fronts as Modi government has launched a genocide of Kashmiri youth as there is no foreign policy to exert diplomatic pressure against the Butcher of Kashmir internationally. “Relations with two friendly neighbours i.e. Iran and Afghanistan have also been brought to all-time low under Nawaz Sharif,” he stated.
The PPP Chairman said that an accountant is running the country and the PML-N presented budget for the rich while totally ignoring the poor classes. “PML-N has extended incentives to iron and poultry industries in the budget and people know very well who is leading the cartels of these businesses in Pakistan,” he added.
He pointed out that Nawaz Sharif initiated false and fabricated cases against Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto and dragged her from court to court but today they are making hue and cry over Panamagate probe.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that 50 million people are living below the poverty line and Nawaz Sharif government failed to provide employment to the jobless during its last four years in power. He said how the country thrown into slough of unemployment, poverty and load-shedding would walk on the path to progress. “Nawaz Sharif is incapable of managing the population of 200 million people. We will not allow RO elections or rigging in 2018 and would defeat him squarely,” he added.
