KARACHI: Pakistan Peoples Party chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that the people of Malakand have announced their decision against this puppet government in this people’s referendum.
He was addressing a mammoth gathering of Pakistan Democratic Movement in Batkhela, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
In his address Bilawal Zardari said that everyone is demanding “go Selected go”.
“The people are in acute financial difficulties due to the 7 years rule of incapable rulers. These people who had promised change are all liars, cheaters and hypocrites. Whatever Imran Khan had promised proved to be a lie. Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto had announced to do away with FCR in Malakand and he had fulfilled that promise.”
The people of Malakand have always supported the PPP and snatched their rights from the usurpers with the PPP. The people chased away terrorists from here. He said that at that time Imran Khan was displaying his usual cowardice. He was advocating those terrorists at that time. Imran Khan never calls terrorists by their name. Imran Khan wanted to open an office of terrorists in KP but the brave people of Malakand did not let him do it. The people of Malakand defeated Imran Khan.
“You have witnessed the tragedy of APS where innocent children were slaughtered by these terrorists and at that time Imran Khan was dancing in Aabpara. Imran Khan was a coward then and he is a coward now.”
Imran Khan released the killer of APS children, Ehsanullah Ehsan from prison because he is a coward. Recently the Hazara community was in mourning because terrorists killed their labourers but Imran Khan again displayed cowardice. Imran Khan could not give justice to anyone.
Imran Khan could not give justice to Bilour family, Mian IftiKhar, APS children and Hazara community. As long as we do not bring terrorists to book we will continue to be embarrassed as a nation, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said.
“The economy of the country has been destroyed by this puppet and selected government. Prices of daily use items, petrol, gas, electricity, sugar, wheat, medicines and vegetables etc have gone up. Pakistan has the lowest growth rate in the region. We have less growth rate than Afghanistan.”
“This has happened because a selected and puppet has been imposed on the country. Just day before yesterday the entire Pakistan was thrown into the darkness because the puppet does not know how to run the country.”
Corruption is rampant during Imran Khan’s rule and scandals of mega-corruption like Malam Jabba, BRT, Aleema Baji sewing machine corruption and Papa Jhon’s pizza are just a few. The Transparency International says that there is a record corruption in this PTI government. Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that there should be one law for every citizen from politician to bureaucrat and from Judges to generals.
Bilawal said that KP province produces more gas than its own consumption but the people of KP are deprived of gas. “We wanted merger of FATA in KP but it seems that KP has been merged into FATA. The youth of KP are being picked up with impunity and in mysterious circumstances.”
“It is not the fate of people of KP to remain poor and deprived. This is not the democracy our elders sacrificed their lives for. The future will only be bright when the people will take their own decisions. Bilawal Bhutto Zardari raised slogans with the people like “meray vote pe Daka na manzoor”, ” dastoor pe Daka na manzoor”, “Jaib pe Daka na manzoor” and “Pakistan pe daka na manzoor”.
Earlier on way to BatKhela, he briefly addressed party workers at Sakhakot and Dargai said that he feels very happy to be with the people of Malakand. He said that jiyalas have come out to send this puppet prime minister home. The countdown of this selected government has started and the people of Malakand will be with the PDM in chasing out the selected, he said.
He said that the people of Malakand are brave who supported Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto and remained steadfast in difficult times. He said that people of Malakand had to go through hard times at the hands of terrorists but the brave people defeated the terrorism.
“Now these courageous people will chase out the selected Imran Khan from Islamabad and a people’s government will be formed which will give relief to the poor people. We will not let this government to snatch your rights,” he said.
