Islamabad: Pakistan Peo­ples Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhu­tto-Zardari said that whenever and wherever Prime Minister Imran Khan goes he is greeted by crisis and he in turn brings in its wake devastation instead of change that he had promised to the people of Pakistan before the election, dawn reported on Tuesday.

Bilawal said this at a gathering of select party workers at the residence of a party leader in Garibabad locality on Monday.

He said that since people were were facing a lot of difficulties due to the rising prices the party will hold protests across the country before press clubs, beginning from October 29, against continuous price hike, increasing poverty and unemployment.

He accused Imran Khan of snatching away even the basic rights guaranteed by the country's constitution, including the right of freedom of speech to the right of vote and having an independent media and had attempted to rob the people of many other constitutional rights as well.

Bilawal said that the PPP had protested against Pak­istan Tehreek-i-Insaf’s IMF-dictated budget as “we do not do politics for ‘power’ but we are in politics to solely serve the people and solve their problems as it is centerpiece of our politics”.
