Gilgit-Baltistan: Bilawal Bhutto Zardari says people will vote against Pakistan PM Imran Khan's candidates

Islamabad: Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said the people of Gilgit-Baltistan will vote against candidates of PM Imran Khan's Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) in the upcoming Nov 15 polls.

The politician made the remark while addressing a corner meeting in Gahkoch area of Ghizar district.

He was quoted as saying by Dawn News that PPP would provide the people of GB their own province, right to rule and property, and right to choose the prime minister of Pakistan as the party had included these demands in its manifesto in the 2018 general elections in Pakistan. 

“Today people from every section of the society are protesting against Imran Khan and his policies as his government has brought poverty, hunger, price hike and unemployment to Pakistan,” he said.

“The PPP always gave subsidies to the poor whereas Imran Khan introduced amnesty for the rich. Now Imran Khan wants to hand over GB’s tourism sector to his friends but we will not him do so,” he was quoted as saying by Dawn News.

Pakistan PM Imran Khan on Sunday announced granting the provisional-provincial status to Gilgit-Baltistan region.

Khan visited the region to attend 73rd Independence Day celebrations.

"One of the reasons for me coming to Gilgit-Baltistan is to announce that we have decided to grant Gilgit-Baltistan the provisional provincial status," he was quoted as saying by Geo News as reported by APP.

Polling for the legislative assembly of Gilgit-Baltistan will be held on Nov 15.
