Country sold for $1.5 billion, says Bilawal
GARHI KHUDA BAKSH: Without direct reference to the financial aid Pakistan received from Saudia Arabia, Chairman Pakistan People’S Party Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said the country was sold for $ 1.5 billion, ARY News reported Friday.
He was addressing a large public gathering on occasion of 35th death anniversary of PPP founding leader Zulfikar Ali Bhutto in Garhi Khuda Baksh.
He spoke in categorical terms that terrorists wanted to deprive Pakistan of its identity.
Taking exception to government decisions, Bilawal said government was appeasing its ‘blue-eyed’ persons in the name of privatization. “We know which bank earned the most of $1.5 billion aid,” he added.
He said government was mourning the death of Hakimimullah Mehsud at one hand while it also sympathizing with martyred army men on the other hand.
Bilawal said country was again being dragged to the war of others. Government policies are unclear, he lamented.
He also expressed regret on annulment of Pak-Iran gas pipeline project.
Bilawal stated that the Sindh government was not like the Punjab government which remained silent over barbaric Joseph Colony incident.
