PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has claimed that if no-confidence motions are brought in the assemblies, the government would not survive.
“We also tell other parties to use the democratic option of no-confidence to get rid of this incompetent government,” Bilawal said while asking the jiyalas (party’s die-hard activists) to come out on October 29 against their “economic massacre”. He said that the common man, including laborers and farmers, were looking towards the PPP at the moment because decisions were made when the party’s government was in power.
He said inflation was at an unprecedented level today. He was separately addressing party’s activists of three union committees – UC-16, 17 and 18 – on the third day of his visit to the city on Wednesday.
Bilawal said that the level of unemployment and poverty in the country today had never been this way in the past. “When the PPP was in the government, we used to take out people from hardships, but the present federal government is giving more problems to the people,” he said.
Separately, Bilawal said that Kashmir issue should be resolved as per the aspirations of Kashmiri people, which was only solution of the dispute. In a message on Kashmir Day, he said that freedom was the basic right of the people of India-occupied Kashmir and Pakistan would never allow India to snatch that right from them. Bilawal Bhutto said that the Modi-led government in India has turned the beautiful valley of Kashmir, known as paradise on earth, into the world’s largest torture cell.
He urged the international community to work for the resolution of the Kashmir dispute in order to ensure durable peace in South Asia. Bilawal said PPP has been fighting for the liberation of Kashmir right from the day it was founded. “My party supports settlement of the dispute in accordance with the United Nations’ resolutions,” he said. He assured the people of Illegal Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) that the PPP would continue to offer them support the way former prime ministers Zulfikar Ali Bhutto (ZAB) and Benazir Bhutto (BB) did.
Former president Asif Ali Zardari, meanwhile, urged the United Nations to play its role for the resolution of the Kashmir issue. “The issue should be resolved as per the wishes of people of the IIOJK,” he added. “PPP pays tributes to the Kashmiri freedom fighters and other people who have been giving sacrifices for the last seven decades,” he said.
