Former prime minister Yousuf Raza Gilani, who was representing the PPP at the rally, while addressing the PDM Bahawalpur rally said the charter signed by PPP chairperson Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari, Maryam, Rehman and other PDM leaders, once implemented will end the problems faced by the public.
Gilani said the solution of issues faced by the residents of Bahawalpur and other south Punjab cities lied in them being given their own province and legislature.
He said the federal government had suggested that the secretariat of a future south Punjab province would either be in Multan or Bahawalpur but stressed that “We have asked for the province, not the secretariat.”
He said Prime Minister Imran undermined the PDM but even then its voice was censored and suppressed. “Why do you censor us? Because you are scared? We will fight you on the ground and in the assembly; the end of oppression is near,” he added.
Rigging Done For The Illegitimate Government: Maulana Fazl
Maulana Fazl thanked the masses who participated in the grand rally.
He further added that the PDM leadership will hold demonstrations in solidarity with Kashmiris across the country for their basic rights.
“In the coming days, I see anarchy in the country. We should handle matters before heading towards anarchy,” he said.
Back-lashing the incumbent government, the PDM Chief stated that Imran Khan with other crisis, was also not able to protest the Occupied Kashmir.
“Illegal government is in power in Pakistan, rigging had been done for the illegitimate government while we [PDM leaders] are here to save the future of Pakistan,” added the JUI-F Chief.
PDM Bahawalpur: “The Days For PTI Government Are Over,” Maryam Nawaz
Maryam Nawaz once again lashed out at PTI government and asked do we call expensive electricity and essential commodities a change?
She further added that the PML-N party workers are continuously raising voice for the youth who was martyred in Islamabad by the police.
Maryam further targeted Prime Minister Imran Khan and condemned the terrible act in Balochistan, where eleven coal miners were shot dead.
She pointed out at the premier saying that he has doubled the country’s debt without laying a single brick for the betterment of the country.
Counting all the woes of the people due to the inflation, she said the International Monetary Fund, to make matters worse, has now “directed for the electricity prices to go up by 25%”.
“I feel your pain. Will the people of Bahawalpur make ends meet to feed their families, to pay their children’s fees, to pay utilities or pay for the treatment of the elderly at home?”
“This is why I want us to send this fake, incompetent prime minister packing who, after two-and-a-half years has thrown his hands in the air to declare he does not know how to run the country’s affairs,” Maryam said.
Maryam said that “what to speak of chicken, no one will soon be able to afford vegetables even”.
