Bilawal Bhutto concerned over diminishing agriculture

Islamabad: Chairman Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has expressed concerns over the diminishing agriculture of the country.

Calling out Prime Minister Imran Khan for the unfair distribution of water to crucial areas of Sindh, Chairman PPP pointed out that the ruling government was entirely responsible for placing Pakistan’s agriculture at stake.

While other politicians are in denial regarding Pakistan’s future, the impact caused by the downfall of crops has painted a clear picture of the harsh conditions that will befall the country soon.

In a statement issued from the Media Cell Bilawal House, the Chairman PPP revealed that the nation had not faced such an acute water crisis in the past 60 years. He also emphasized upon the dire effects this preferential distribution can lead to, including an irreversible bump in poverty and inflation. “The cotton crops of the country have already declined according to the statistics. Shockingly, the puppet Prime Minister and his government are unable to realize the thousands of lives that will be affected since those living in rural areas are highly dependent on crop generation,” exclaimed Chairman PPP Bilawal Bhutto Zardari. “Who will provide them with food, water, and their daily necessities?” he questioned. “We will not remain, mum, while countless of our people die of malnutrition!”

The Chairman PPP also expressed his disbelief over the exaggerated corruption statistics presented by the government. “Imran Khan Niazi has been delivering false facts since the day he assumed power. The nation is well aware of his U-turns and overstatement of reality – especially when it comes to complimenting his government,” he said. “And now he is making claims of economic growth. If the economy was growing, why have thousands of people been rendered jobless? Why are people sleeping with empty stomachs? The PM is answerable to the suffering he is endowing upon the citizens of Pakistan.”

Chairman PPP Bilawal Bhutto Zardari further highlighted that the poverty rate is over 21%, and these numbers do not show any economic growth. “If the economic growth rate has increased, why is PTI cutting the budget of higher education institutions in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa?” he inquired. “You cannot photoshop reality!”

He further stated that the international community estimates the poverty rate at 40%. This is an extremely alarming situation that can lead to catastrophic inflation. “Imran Khan’s must leave office if we want to eliminate inflation, unemployment, and corruption from the country. Enough is enough. We can no longer risk the future of Pakistan.”

He also pointed out that the basis of Imran Khan’s failure is his lack of experience. Running the country is not the same as playing cricket, and the current PM is entirely unaware of economic problems. He does not know how to run the country.

“With half a century of experience, Pakistan Peoples Party is the only party that can correct the country’s economic direction,” concluded Chairman PPP Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.

PPP stands for the right of freedom of expression, condemns attacks on journalists

Islamabad, 1 June 2021: Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari visited journalist Asad Toor’s residence to express solidarity with him. He was accompanied by Fahatullah Babar, Senator Raza Rabbani, Faisal Karim Kundi, Nasir Shah, Murtaza Wahab and Nazir Dhoki.

Afterwards Chairman Bilawal talking to journalists said that the attacker who assaulted Asad Toor were coward who thinks themselves as brave people. They have sent a message of weakness and cowardice and insecurity that they cannot tolerate even a Vlog.  These kinds of incidents do not happen in democratic countries. He said that he will take this issue in the human rights committee of the National Assembly. He requested Asad Toor to present his case in the committee. We will also request PFUJ to work with us for journalists’ security. We have to hold these attackers responsible.

Chairman Bilawal said that this government cannot provide security to the journalists in the federal capital where foreign embassies are situated and the prime minister brags wrongly about freedom of the press in Pakistan. The prime minister tells lies to the entire world. Chairman Bhutto said that we all as a society will have to fight for the freedom of the press in the country. If we do not stand with journalists then if we become the target of such attacks then no one will stand with us. We condemn these attacks and also the campaigns of character assassination and fake news against journalists. We salute the bravery of Asad Toor and we know that with such attacks Asad Toor cannot be silenced.

Responding to questions, he said that we all in the government and opposition have to be at one page and condemn the attacker and bring them to book. Such attacks have become a norm in the country and journalists cannot work in this environment of terror. He said that before this attack Absar Alam was attacked and before him Mutiullah Jan as well so we have to talk about these issues in the standing committee. 

Earlier in the day, Chairman Bilawal met the party senators and discussed the issues regarding the budget for the next financial year. He was also briefed about the Pakistan Media Development Authority ordinance. Chairman PPP said that PPP will oppose every effort to crush the freedom of expression by this puppet government. He said that it is unfortunate that the government is running on ordinances ignoring the parliament. The PPP will oppose this anti-people budget in the parliament.
