In his address in National assembly Bilawal said while criticizing the rising rate of inflation in the country, that the federal government had failed to provide relief to People of Pakistan.
Bilawal has also asked Prime Minister Imran Khan to resign in the country’s best interest, the people are suffering due to unprecedented inflation and unemployment, he added.
He said that the ruling PTI has borrowed a highest-ever debts of the country’s history. “The government-owned State Bank has confirmed that Rs11,000 billion loans have been borrowed since the PTI came into power whereas during the last 61 years only Rs6,000 billion were borrowed.”
While reminding the PM Imran’s pledges which he made during the victory speech after the general elections in July 2018, Bilawal said that Imran Khan used to say that he would rather commit suicide instead of borrowing foreign loans.
Chairman PPP took a dig at lawmakers of the PTI and called them “junior minsters”, “only junior ministers and state ministers attend the National Assembly sessions,” he stated.
“A helpless parliament is discussing inflation when the common citizen questions the government on whether they should feed their child or pay exorbitant gas and electricity bills,” said Bilawal Bhutto.
Bilawal also claimed that the federal government has tried to sabotage the Benazir Income Support Program (BISP) and label it as their own under pseudonyms.
