PDM Hyderabad: Shahid Khaqan lambastes the govt. over tsunami of inflation
Following the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) powershow in Hyderabad, PML-N leader Shahid Khaqan Abbasi lashed out at the incumbent government over inflation and unemployment.
“He (Imran) has destroyed the economy, taken out the funeral of Pakistan’s democracy and locked Pakistan’s journalists and legal institutions,” said Shahid Khaqan.
He said the prices of wheat and sugar had risen and the electricity per unit price rose from Rs13 to Rs25 “because the elections were stolen in 2018”.
“The 11 parties in front of you gained 70 per cent of the votes in the last elections despite fraud,” the PML-N leader told the crowd. “All they say is that the country should be run according to the Constitution.”
Khaqan Abbasi also accused the government of having “crippled” the parliament, where he said lawmakers were unable to talk about people’s issues such as inflation.
“This is the same government that promised one crore jobs. I ask the people of Hyderabad whether they have gotten even one job from those one crore jobs, the leader questioned.
Incompetent government brought a tsunami of inflation: Bilawal Bhutto
On the other hand, Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto has criticized Prime Minister Imran Khan over rigging during the 2018 elections.
Terming the government “puppet, selected and formed as a result of rigging”, Bilawal said none of the provinces and even Gilgit-Baltistan and Azad Kashmir belonged to Prime Minister Imran.
He further said that,
“We will snatch our rights by reaching Islamabad. Sindh is being given Rs 200 billion less than NFC this year. We will protect our democracy, we will protect our rights.”
Bilawal also criticized Imran Khan for not calling Sindh a province.
“How can any Prime Minister use these words for the land of Sindh?” said the PPP chairman.
Bilawal said that this incompetent government is buying the crops from outside instead of buying them from the country.
“Our farmers are bearing the loss, so much damage has been done that 50% of the families are suffering from malnutrition.”
