Prime Minister Imran Khan has thrown the country to the wolves: Bilawal Bhutto

Islamabad: Pakistan's key opposition leader and  PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari targeted Imran Khan on the economic conditions of the country and said the PM is unsustainably borrowing money from international leasing agencies and this unprecedented borrowing is akin to mortgaging the country's economic integrity and freedom.

“The selected Prime Minister Imran Khan has thrown the country to the wolves, and succeeding governments will bear the burden of lifting Pakistan out of crisis,” he was quoted as saying in a statement recently by The News International.

In his strong remark, Bhutto said the prime minister must resign and go home before Pakistan reaches a point of no return.

“Pakistan’s economic policies are now being dictated by international donor agencies, while the incumbent government and prime minister merely rubber stamping anything on their table,” he said, adding that Pakistan has been reduced to being left at the mercy of its creditors.

“This incompetent and selected prime minister has overseen Pakistan’s external debt increasing to $116 billion from $95 billion with an increase of $21 billion,” he was quoted as saying by the newspaper.

He said Pakistan will never be able to repay these loans, even if all national assets are mortgaged to our creditors.

“This puts Pakistan in a precarious position, from which the country might not recover,” he further added.
