Shigar: Chairman Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that every oppressed Pakistani is standing with Ali Bhutto, Benazir Bhutto and with him.
He said this while addressing a corner meeting in Shigar in connection with the elections 2020 in Gilgit Baltistan. The journey Zulfikar Ali Bhutto had started with the people of GB is still on and will continue till the people of GB get their rights.
This is my duty and responsibility to fulfill the dreams which Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and Shaheed Benazir Bhutto had envisioned. He said that he will send the people’s representatives of GB to Islamabad.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that he derives strength from the support of the people. He does not take instructions from no one but the people. The PPP will deliver the rights of the people. This is not the fate of the people of GB that they remain poor and they do not get the facilities for education and health. PPP had provided employment to the people of GB and during the last government in GB, the chief minister GB who belongs to the PPP had provided 25000 jobs to the youth of GB.
PPP started subsidy on food items for the people of GB during Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto’s time. The people of GB are still benefitting from that subsidy. President Zardari began the BISP which is helping the poor women all over the country. PPP has established a network of free hospitals in Sindh where heart and liver treatment is carried out free of cost. Similar health facilities will be established in GB along with educational institutes, he said.
Chairman PPP said that Zulfikar Ali Bhutto had provided jobs to the people of Pakistan by establishing institutions like Steel Mills. He gave the people the right to have a passport so that people can go abroad and provide their families. Even today the people are employed in foreign countries and supporting their families in Pakistan. PPP has always provided jobs to the people of Pakistan.
On the other hand, the selected and puppet government of Imran Khan has troubled every section of society. Today, every section of society is protesting in Islamabad from lady health workers to the government servants. We have to stop this selected government from destroying everything we have like it has destroyed Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. We have to protect GB from similar kind of destruction.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that Imran Khan destroyed the country in the name of change. This change has destroyed the country. Imran Khan never fulfilled a single promise he made before the elections which were massively rigged. The selected Imran Khan had promised the people of South Punjab a separate province. He had promised to establish Southern Punjab province in 100 days but it proved to be a lie as usual.
Chairman PPP said that his party is close to the people of GB. He said that a lot many young people come to Karachi for employment and education. The Shigar House in Karachi will be improved by Sindh government. PPP will establish hostels of GB students in Karachi. Only PPP can work for the people. Imran Khan failed to establish a single hospital or educational institution in 7 years in KP and over 2 years in Islamabad. It is PPP which never leaves the people alone. We increased salaries and pensions.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari vowed to remain with the people of GB till the elections are held. He said that PDM is holding public gathering but he wants to remain with the people of GB for the entire election campaign. He asked people of GB to vote for the PPP candidates so that he can celebrate the victory of PPP with the people of GB.
