LAHORE: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari’s spokesperson Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar on Sunday criticised Prime Minister Imran Khan over his recent statement with regard to the 18th Constitutional Amendment.
Khokhar in a statement said the prime minister lately accepted that his target is the 18th Amendment.
The motive behind bringing Imran Khan to power has been exposed, the PPP leader said, questioning the federation had not become bankrupt in the past one decade since the passage of the 18th Amendment, how did it went bankrupt now?
PM Khan was leveling allegations to cover up his failures, adding economic situation has become a national security issue.
Addressing a rally at Khangarh in Ghotki on Saturday, Prime Minister Imran Khan had said after the 18th Amendment, the federation has become bankrupt. He had said the center had to face fiscal shortfall to the tune of Rs600 billion due to debt servicing, federal transfers to the provinces and defences budget that leaves nothing for development.
