Price hike: Govt sleeps while nation weeps, says Bilawal


ISLAMABAD: Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said Tuesday that the government’s empty promises were not worth the paper they were written on as the person, who promised the people five million houses and 10 million jobs, was the very reason for the growing hopelessness in the country.

“In this environment of economic constraints faced by the people, he feels for the poor countrymen who are suffering from the acute poverty, unemployment and price-hike of the daily use commodities,” Bilawal said in a statement,

The PPP chairman said that the ‘selected’ government and prime minister were busy benefitting from their rich cronies and did not care about the poor. He said: “The ‘selected’ thinks that the country can be run by opening shelters and food trucks but are unable to comprehend the difficulties faced by the common salaried population. The common people are finding it enormously difficult to stay afloat economically and raise their children.”

The callous government of ‘selected’ Imran Khan had made it impossible for a common citizen to buy medicine for the elderly, Bilawal said adding that the people were lagging behind in payment of the school fees of their children.

He said that the people were unable to feed their children twice a day. “Malnutrition is creating an ailing nation because the children cannot get enough nutrition required for their growth. The people have been left deserted by those who had taken oaths promising their welfare,” said the PPP chairman.

Bilawal says the longer this ‘callous and selected regime’ stays in power, the darker seems to be the future of the country. The nation is bearing the burden of incompetence and incapability of this government which has failed in all fronts, says Bilal.

“The selected are turning a blind eye towards the biggest challenge faced by this nation, which is the ever-increasing food inflation and poverty. This cannot continue as the people deserve better. The people of Pakistan want a real democratic government,” he concluded.
