KARACHI: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari said on Tuesday that his party is ready to safeguard the 18th Amendment of the Constitution and if needed, a long march will be held to let it remain intact.
The PPP chairman was addressing reporters after inaugurating a medical college in Gumbat.
Bilawal said that the party will appeal against the decision on the 18th Amendment. “We will not let them snatch away the hospitals in Sindh,” he vowed.
The PPP chief challenged Prime Minister Imran Khan to build a medical college similar to the one inaugurated in Gumbat.
“In the last budget, people such as PM Imran’s sister received relief but none was given to the poor,” said the PPP chairman.
Bilawal said that the way PM Imran is running the parliament is counter-productive for the country.
Bilawal said that PPP founder Zulfikar Ali Bhutto had dismissed Imran’s father on the basis of corruption. “Bhutto was the first elected prime minister and he was the one who introduced the concept of one individual, one vote,” said the PPP chairman.
He said that the country and the province of Sindh is facing multiple challenges but now it will be possible for the poor to get their treatment in Sindh.
