Bilawal Bhutto Zardari slams PTI govt, says Pakistan suffering unprecedented economic devastation

Islamabad: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, who is one of the key opposition leaders of Pakistan, on Monday slammed the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government for allegedly "backtracking on all its promises"

He said people were suffering from unprecedented economic devastation during the PTI rule.

Addressing a party workers' convention in Peshawar, Bilawal said PPP had already announced "waging a war against this incompetent government", adding that the party's planned long march would initiate from Karachi on Feb 27 which, he said, would be difficult to handle for the PTI once it reached Islamabad, reports The Dawn.

"This government had promised a change but it only pushed masses into economic crisis. The PTI after coming to power had vowed to provide 10 million jobs, but it rendered several people jobless in its three and a half years of power," Bilawal was quoted as saying by the newspaper.

He said the PPP would use its "democratic power" to shake the government and send it home.

"We are not a party that attacks the judiciary or approaches other institutions with a request to topple a government. We are also not a party that storms the PTV headquarters or parliament to get its demands accepted."

He also called out Prime Minister Imran Khan, saying if his government wanted to hold out an olive branch to terrorists "then it must do so with the consultation of the parliament, otherwise any such talks will have no legitimacy".

The PPP chairperson said that "terrorists" must first apologise to the nation for spilling the blood of citizens and personnel of armed forces.

"If you let loose these terrorists, your state will be in a great disorder," he said.
