Govt coming to an end: Bilawal Bhutto

Karachi: Chairman Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that the “puppets” are leaving now and their government is coming to an end.

Addressing the inaugural function of the People’s Square-style Fishermen’s Chowrangi Public Project in Korangi District, the PPP Chairman said that the elected representatives of his Party were the real representatives of the people, who were with the people in their difficult times.

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that if the census is conducted in a wrong way, there will be objections on it, and the PPP has been resisting on this issue on every forum since day one. He said that MQM’s staying with the PTI government is not a demand of their own voters, but it is not known what compulsion they have to stand with this government.

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that we were born in Karachi, live here and also. No one has done as much work as the PPP has done for the infrastructure and development of this city. “Even before I was born, the MQM and now the PTI are” selected “from here. They should be asked what they have done for areas like Korangi and so on,” he said. He added that the media does not report on the positive work of the PPP government. Our focus is on Karachi, and despite the economic difficulties, we are reaching everywhere. As the saying goes, “Rome was not built in a day”, all the problems of Karachi cannot be solved immediately, but we are working day and night to provide world-class facilities to the citizens here.

The PPP Chairman pointed out that the Sindh government’s ability to generate its own revenue was much better than other provinces. The Sindh government has worked on many projects that shine less, but they are very useful. The work of underground water and drainage lines under the Neighborhood Project by the provincial government is commendable.

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that PPP has been standing as the voice of fishermen against the occupation of the islands and now the illegitimate presidential ordinance of the federal government has come to an end. The islands belong to the local fishermen. Until the fears of the people of this land are allayed and they are satisfied, we will not allow a single brick to be laid on these islands.

The PPP Chairman said that fishermen have been living in Karachi even before the formation of Pakistan, which is now under siege and pressure from all sides. There are complaints that they are harassed when go to sea. The Sindh government is working on this issue and a solution will be worked out jointly with the concerned institutions but the respect of the fishermen should be kept in mind.

Meanwhile, Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah, while addressing the function, said that at present the opposition is convening meetings and making plans to tarnish image of the PPP provincial government, which is doing a lot for the people.

He said that the federal government has given Rs 63 billion less than fair share to Sindh during the current financial year. Provincial Ministers Syed Nasir Hussain Shah, Saeed Ghani, Sohail Anwar Sial and Shehla Raza, Advisor to the Chief Minister Murtaza Wahab, Special Assistant Waqar Mehdi and other leaders were also present on the occasion.
