- Economic survey does not accurately identify the problems of the people,
- Statistics regarding poverty and unemployment are omitted
- People are paying a high price
ISLAMABAD, (June 11, 2021): Rejecting the Economic Survey 2021, Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said it did not depict the country’s actual conditions. He criticized the government for omitting the statistics regarding poverty and unemployment from the economic survey – especially since there has been a historic rise in both.
In a statement issued from the Media Cell Bilawal House, the Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said. “Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has seen a historic rise in poverty. Since the incompetent government wants to hide these numbers from the public, they have removed the statistics regarding poverty from the economic survey.”
Condemning this move, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari stated that hiding poverty and unemployment stats and making excuses for inflation is not the solution. “A record rise in the unemployment rate in Pakistan’s history is the real face of Imran Khan’s change,” he declared.
The Chairman PPP warned the selected PM to take note of the plight of the underprivileged who are suffering due to PTI’s negligence. “If the economic survey does not accurately identify the problems of the people, how will these issues be solved?” he said. “Pretending something does not exist will not free the nation of the predicament.”
Chairman Bilawal Bhutto continued, “The Prime Minister is not bearing the burden of the PTIMF budget. It is the people who are paying a high price for Imran Khan’s ineptitude by being exposed to a devastating rate of inflation, unemployment, and poverty.
