KHAPLU: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari on Saturday said that ‘selected’ Prime Minister Imran Khan has destroyed Pakistan’s economy and foreign policy.
Addressing a workers’ convention here, Bilawal said that the rupee is depreciating and dollar exchange rate has sky-rocketed while inflation is rapidly increasing along with poverty and unemployment.
“Imran Khan’s government has taken more loans in one year than the PPP took in its five-year tenure,” he said.
The PPP chairman asserted that PM Imran used to claim that he would prefer suicide over taking loans but the result is in front of the whole country. “The premier has backtracked on all the promises he had made before coming into power,” he added.
The scion of the Bhutto dynasty said that he is very happy to be in Gilgit-Baltistan as former premier Benazir Bhutto was the first PM to visit Siachen.
“Shaheed Bhutto gave Ganche the status of a district while no government has thought about the region before,” he added.
He said that the PPP government provided employment to the youth to tackle poverty in the region. “Gilgit-Baltistan has always played a leading role for the country’s defense. I salute the martyrs for their bravery,” he added.
“The country is going through a difficult situation and things are getting worse with each passing day,” he concluded.
