ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Peoples Party co-chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari ion Tuesday said that bulldozing of mini-budget by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government will cause historic poverty.
Spoeaking to the reporters in Islamabad, Bilawal said the poor people of the country will have to bear the weight of the historic incompetence of the PTI-led government.
He said the bill regarding the State Bank of Pakistan was "bulldozed at around midnight, counting was not done, amendments were not heard. This was the biggest economic attack on the country in its history."
He further stated that after this legislation, the State Bank is not answerable to the government, parliament, judiciary, and the people. Rather, it will be run on the dictation of international financial institutions.
Bilawal reiterated his party will start a protest from Karachi against the government from February 27.
He said that all opposition parties will have to play role in this regard. "We have to dislodge the government, no matter the number of marches" he added.
While vowing to send the government packing, Bilawal said they will only use democratic means to get rid of this government.
He said that Prime Minister Imran Khan repeatedly speaks of Riyasat-e-Madina to "draw the people's attention away" from the government's "economic failures".
"Those who attempt to divert people's attention can say their prayers, can keep their fasts and can make arrangements for their eternal abode in heaven. We, too, will continue in our struggle," Bilawal said.
