–Bilawal blasts PTI federal government, says leading making ‘false claims’ of decrease in Covid-19 cases, offering relief to masses by means of federal budget and POL costs
LAHORE: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari on Wednesday stated that Pakistan International Airline Companies (PIA) was banned from operating flights to European countries because of the allegations of a “minister whose own degree is fake”.
Attending to an interview in Lahore, the PPP chief commemorated the police officers coming from Jamshoro, Nawabshah, and other parts of Sindh who showed guts throughout the attack on Karachi Stock Market (PSX).
He likewise commemorated the police officer who came from Lyaari Hassan Baloch and the other brave children of Sindh. He stated that the Sindh federal government has actually revealed benefits for them all because people are living quietly in Karachi due to the sacrifices of these martyrs, who have actually likewise conserved our economy.
He stated that Punjab’s young medical professionals required a danger allowance a few days ago and PPP supports their need and the medical professionals, nurses and health employees ought to all be provided a danger allowance. We have actually offered a danger allowance to all medical professionals in Sindh however the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) federal government has actually not made a boost in the wages and pensions of individuals, he added.
Bilawal stated that throughout history, Pakistan has actually never ever dealt with such obstacles. “We are combating the locust issue. Floods have been predicted and the PTI makes each issue a disaster such as in the case of Covid-19 and the locust issue which have been made into disasters. The government has increased the issues facing us,” he stated.
He likewise stated that individuals ought to be offered with relief by enforcing taxes on the abundant. “The way that they have dropped a bomb on the people by increasing the petrol price is through an illegal notification which they released and the losses suffered by oil companies are being compensated for through burdening the people. These are all the PTI government’s frontmen and now we are expecting a tsunami of the price hike. In every budget of theirs, there is a pain for the people and relief for the rich,” he stated.
“Imran Khan speaks in our absence and does not answer our questions; I had challenged him to a debate on television. The problem with Imran Khan is that he is not ready to be the prime minister of our country but is happy to be that of his own party. We want Imran Khan to sit with us and debate so that he understands what Covid-19 is and what is locust and what are the threats but Imran Khan is a prime minister only on Twitter and Facebook,” he added.
Highly condemning PM Imran Khan for calling infamous terrorist Osama bin Laden a shaheed (martyr), Bilawal stated that he calls a terrorist who eliminated Pakistani residents, soldiers, reporters, men, women and children a shaheed.
“Who was behind Yousaf Ramzi, who was behind 1994 failed mutiny, who was behind destruction in Swat?” he asked. “Imran Khan refuses to call Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto a shaheed but calls a terrorist a shaheed. So far, Imran Khan has not clarified his statement and thus, bringing Pakistan to disrepute.”
The PPP chief stated that the loss due to Imran Khan stuck as prime minister is the damage of Pakistan’s diplomacy, economy and failure to combat Covid-19 “Imran Khan is the first prime minister who ran the election campaign of Modi,” he stated.
“Imran Khan has become a joke and whenever he opens his mouth, a joke comes out. He has never met representatives of doctors, nurses and labourers. Whenever he met, he met rich people. There is no health or education in his budget. He is only giving relief to his cronies. This budget is a PTIMF budget,” he added.
Bilawal stated that Imran assaults the constitution regularly. “He attacks the 18th Amendment because he wants to revert to one-unit. Pakistan will be at a great loss by reverting back to one-unit which means ending the autonomy of the provinces. Imran Khan is against provinces and federation and against those who talk in the interest of the country. Mir Shakeelur Rehman is still languishing in jail without a case against him. Similar is the case of Syed Khursheed Shah who is in jail for no crime but on the other hand, those PTI ministers who have cases against them are free,” he stated.
He declared that the federal government wishes to murder President Asif Ali Zardari. “When President Zardari was in jail he was not provided medicines and today NAB wants him to be infected with Covid-19,” he stated. “Zardari has two cases against him, in one case he has an exemption to come to the court and the second case is in which NAB wants him to come to the court. Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani was infected with Covid-19 when he appeared before the court in the same case. This government does not respect old people as well as women but rest assured that we will not go back on the 18th Amendment.”
He likewise stated that “PPP does not want any NRO and will face the cases but your cases do not have substance and you are unable to convict us”.
He even more stated that PM Imran has actually provided numerous NROs to his “cronies” and the first NRO he provided to his sibling Aleema Khan, who has actually not provided her money path. “Imran Khan introduced amnesty scheme for thieves because he himself is a beneficiary of General Musharraf’s amnesty. He said that the prime minister has many faces but the reality is that he is the biggest hypocrite in the history of the country,” he added.
Bilawal stated that the prime minister’s boasts about money offered to bad people through the Benazir Earnings Assistance Program (BISP) which was presented by the PPP federal government to assist women. He altered the name of BISP to Ehsaas and the money (Rs12,000) was accumulative money of this regular monthly assistance to individuals provided by the PPP federal government, he added.
“It is also a fact that Imran Khan took back that Rs12,000 from the poor people in the shape of electric bills,” he stated, asking if the premier has any compassion for the bad people then why he assigned Rs34 billion less for bad people.
The PPP chief stated that governance can just be seen in Sindh and Balochistan. Punjab, the greatest inhabited province of Pakistan has actually been turned over to a “trainee chief minister” who is in quarantine for the last 2 years.
He stated that the federal government not just denied Sindh of its due share from the divisible swimming pool however likewise took away Rs483 billion of Punjab. “This PTI government is unable to collect its own revenue so why the failure of the federal government should be shouldered by the people of Punjab. If people are not given relief, then the people will drag prime minister Imran Khan out of the prime minister house. Imran Khan did not accept my challenge to show me a single hospital anywhere in the country which parallels the NICVD,” he stated.
Bilawal stated that PM Imran has “destroyed” our national airline company because he does not understand that through what problems a pilot and other personnel go through throughout their work. He does not understand that every pilot’s licence is examined every 6 months. “A minister whose own degree is fake accuses pilots of having fake licenses. This is shameful,” he stated.
He likewise stated that Pakistan will be separated like Sweden because of mismanagement by the PTI federal government. He even more that the PTI federal government wishes to capitalize of one mishap and offer the national airline companies. “This government also wants to sell Roosevelt Hotel,” headded “These are Pakistani assets. Our pilots are our assets because they are famous for their excellence all over the world. Many airlines have employed Pakistani pilots because they are the best in the world. Imran Khan is selected and his government is a fake government and now it wants to destroy PIA.”
Bilawal stated that the auditor general of Pakistan released a report which says that throughout in 2015, this PTI federal government did corruption of Rs273 billion. “This is Imran Khan’s corruption and he will have to be accountable. He would have to be accountable for sugar report. He will have to be held accountable for giving benefits of billions of rupees to his front men,” he stated.
Reacting to the concerns of reporters, Bilawal stated that we have actually never ever discussed “minus one” however Imran himself is speaking about minus one. “Democracy is threatened by Imran Khan and his ego. The PTI government is on a vilification campaign against Sindh government because Sindh is the only province which has shown governance,” he stated.
“Imran Khan does not have a mandate, he is selected and his mandate is fake, which can evaporate any time. He said that he hopes that PML-N will support PPP’s stance with zeal and vigour and also hopes that Shehbaz Sharif will get well soon and will contact PPP for holding an APC,” he added.
He even more stated that PPP takes no one’s signal however listens to individuals of Pakistan. He challenged that the “people who rigged Senate election should come out in open and tell the people how this rigging was managed”.
The PPP chief stated that there is a consentaneous viewpoint in the society versus PTI federal government and Imran Khan. He stated that PPP will put this point throughout in the APC that the speaker of the National Assembly is running the sessions of the lower house partly and they will raise the problem of no self-confidence versus the speaker in the APC.
