LAHORE: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said on Saturday that Lahore has been thrown to terrorists’ accomplices. He warned the rulers to ‘correct their direction’ as times have changed.
Talking to workers convention after setting aside the stance of conciliatory politics, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that rulers imposed on Punjab are no less than punishment from God and said that neither are they ‘khadim’(servants) nor ‘ala’(great).
Criticizing the rulers, he said that on one hand, Army is fighting the terrorists whereas the rulers are destroying the economy. He said that policies of rulers are not masses-friendly and are also denying farmers of their rights.
Bilawal said that corruption is rampant in government whereas National Accountability Bureau (NAB) is nowhere to be seen. He inquired as to when the investigations for Nandipur power project will be held.
Addressing the PM, Bilawal said that the premier’s policies are hurting farmers’ livelihood yet he is bent on building metros. He implored that if the rulers cannot make sure that farmers earn their bread then they have no right to rule. He said that in the rule of the ‘Khadim-e-Ala’, farmers had been forced to throw their potatoes on the roads.
Bilawal called the current government as pro-capitalist government as the farmers are suffering. Calling out CM Punjab, Bilawal said that the former had promised to end load shedding in 6 months otherwise he would change his name. Bilawal inquired as to what the new name of the CM should be.
