KARACHI: Coming down hard on the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) chief Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said on Wednesday incapable rulers had pushed the nation into a deep crisis.
In his address to a party convention in Gujar Khan through hologram technology, the PPP chief questioned how the country would progress if there was economic injustice and inequality in opportunities for the citizens.
“Our power-hungry politicians and incapable rulers have failed to pay attention to the real problems facing the nation,” Bilawal said, adding, “Price hikes have rendered the nation helpless since the country’s wealth is only restricted to a few clans.”
According to the PPP chief, every year 300,000 youth become part of the unemployed population.
Stating that his party continues to promulgate its ideology of progressive politics, Bilawal said: “Shaheed BB kept Shaheed Bhutto’s tradition alive after he handed over the nation’s hand to her.”
He remarked that “Shaheed BB fought for the underprivileged and the masses’ and ‘gave them an ideology”.
He further said that 50 years ago, his mother had raised the flag of rebellion against the system when a dictator was imposed on the nation and a namesake government was ruling the country. “There is not a lot of difference between the circumstances back then and now,” concluded Bilawal.
