KARACHI: Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has asked the puppet Prime Minister Imran Khan should take responsibility for not controlling inflation, resign and go home.
In a statement issued from Media Cell Bilawal House, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari addressing Imran Khan said that inflation was touching the highest level in the country and that people’s patience was running out.
“More than 100 per cent increase in the prices of medicines is tantamount to depriving the common man of his right to life. Flitting between his ‘illegal’ Banigala mansion and the aircondioned rooms of the Prime Minister House, the selected PM has no idea of the plight of parents who are having trouble paying their children’s school fees and house rent,” he added.
He pointed out that there has not been a single Eid since Imran Khan has been Prime Minister where it has been easy for a poor family to buy new clothes due to high prices. “Imran Khans false crusade against corruption has lured the people into long queues for sugar.”
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that if Imran Khan wants to argue that three years are too short for the change he claimed he would bring in ninety days, then how does he explain his parties eight years in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa? Can he name a single thing that has changed apart from increasing prices at government hospitals?
The PPP Chairman added opening Lungar khanas will not end poverty, as one has to practically and actively implement policies aimed at eradicating poverty, instead of pursuing policies aimed at eradicating the poor.
He said “People are compelled to pay Rs. 68 more for 20 kg bag of flour”.
The people will never forgive Imran Khan for crushing the poor under the burden of taxes imposed on the orders of the IMF. “Imran Khan’s change is to give tax breaks to his capitalist friends and tighten the noose on the common man,” he concluded.
