PPP not only talks about poor but works for their welfare: Bilawal
KAGHAN: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said on Sunday if his party is catapulted into power it would serve the people of the country, ARY News reported.
Addressing a public gathering in Kaghan Valley, Bilawal said, “there are a lot of politicians who speak about the poor, but you know very well Bhuttos not only talk about them but work for their well-being.”
“Shaheed Zulifqar Ali Bhutto, Shahnawaz Bhutto, Mir Murtaza Bhutto and Benazir Bhutto laid their lives for you,” he told the participants of the gathering in his brief speech. “Inshallah if you support us, and Allah gives us an opportunity, our party will serve the people of the country.”
Referring to his political opponent – PTI chairman Imran Khan, he said, “this is just beginning. We will hold public meetings in the entire province and you know Khan will start crying.”
Addressing a public gathering in Mansehra a day before, the PPP chairman said that the country is going through a sensitive time, including border situations, but instead both leaders are just hungry for power and not willing to solve the real issues of the nation.
“Mian Sahab is speaking about saving himself and threatening institutions to undermine them,” he said. “While Imran is warning about making amendments to the constitution.”
“Both leaders are just greedy for power. They neither have the ability or the willingness to solve the problems of the people.”
“They have no manifesto, no plan, and even no ideology to take the nation forward,” said Bilawal maintaining that PPP is the only party which has a manifesto for all segments of the society.
Bilawal said that Imran Khan has raised hollow slogans of change and development on Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. “Imran Khan’s slogan is against corruption, while everyone is accused of. Whenever you have came on stage, you have spoken a new lie with the people of the country.”
Bilawal said that Imran Khan has instead used the resources of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa for politics in Punjab. “The next election will be my first election and Imran Khan’s last election,” he said.
He also criticised ousted Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and said that he is speaking about revolution but the people will not fall for it.
“You are not innocent, instead you are the culprit,” he said and the Supreme Court has disqualified him for life. He said that Nawaz Sharif lied in front of the courts, gave false testimonies and now is now asking why he has been disqualified.
“Have you an idea of a revolution. You are a conspirator, not a revolutionary,” he said.
He called on support from the people and vowed that the PPP will not abandon them and instead work for the development of the nation. “I believe in the power of the people. I will work for their sake and never abandon them.”
“I am in the place which played a pivotal role in the creation of Pakistan. The people of Mansehra played an important role in the history of Pakistan,” he said and the PPP has worked for the area whenever it came to power.
PPP has also worked for the development of the region, including health, education and road infrastructure whenever it came to power. “It is the manifesto of the PPP that the problems of the people are solved.”
