Addressing a press conference in Karachi, Bilawal Bhutto said that the government should immediately withdraw the ordinance regarding SBP.
“This institution is accountable only to Pakistanis and not to the IMF. It is against the ideology of the PPP,” Bilawal said.
“The government should immediately withdraw this ordinance and repeal it. We will challenge this illegal ordinance at every forum as it is a serious attack on Pakistan’s economic sovereignty, which will affect every Pakistani,” he said.
“We understand that the way this government has made its economic policy and economic agreements with the IMF is not in the public interest,” he said.
Bilawal Bhutto said that this government did not have the capacity to represent and negotiate with the IMF regarding the economic situation of this country, every Pakistani today is carrying the burden due to their wrong, failed and incompetent decisions.
He said that every Pakistani’s pocket has been robbed, the way in which the common man is facing inflation and poverty today has never been the worst economic situation in the history of Pakistan.
He said that it was a sad and historic failure that Pakistan’s economic growth was negative, Pakistan’s growth rate was behind Bangladesh and war-torn Afghanistan.
Chairman PPP said that we will fight the latest conspiracy to snatch the SBP, this government has constantly harmed the people due to wrong policies.
He said that when petrol was getting cheaper all over the world, there was a petrol crisis in Pakistan, which was taken advantage of by some cartels and the government. The people who took this decision were not just a special assistant or an individual but It was a collective decision of the cabinet.
Referring to the Special Assistant for Petroleum, he said that it was the decision of Prime Minister Imran Khan and yesterday he tried to save himself from this sin and historical oppression by making a Special Assistant a scapegoat.
“We demand that just as Nadeem Babar has been ousted, so should every minister and prime minister who sits in this cabinet, be removed and all resign,” he said. Should.
“It was a historic scandal and we will not accept that it was just a matter of a special assistant. When the government could have benefited the people of Pakistan by reducing the price of petrol, they created a crisis and benefited a few personalities,” he said.
He said that PPP will continue to give a tough time inside and outside the parliament as we have been doing since the inception of the government to date.
