KARACHI: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has strongly condemned the recent increase in the prices of petroleum products. “Everyone is going to be adversely affected by the petrol-bomb,” a statement issued Wednesday quoting the PPP chairman as saying. Bilawal said that PML-N government was pursuing ‘casino economy’ while poor were being squeezed and prices of the utilities had gone through the roof. The PPP chairman demanded immediate withdrawal of the price hike and threatened public protests otherwise. He said that rulers had dragged masses into a slew of debts and urged people it was time to rise-up. Meanwhile, Bilawal extended his heartiest congratulations to newly elected office-bearers of the Pakistan Broadcasters Association (PBA) on Wednesday.

In a message to newly-elected PBA President Mian Amir Mahmood, General Secretary Mir Ibrahimur Rehman and others, the PPP chairman hoped that the new body would work for freedom of the media. He said that the PPP had always fought for freedom of expression. Assuring complete support of the PPP, he hoped that new body would also play an active role in strengthening of democracy and democratic institutions. Separately, the PPP chairman Wednesday congratulated the newly elected office-bearers of the Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA). Bilawal expressed hope that the new SCBA body would struggle for supremacy of the constitution and law to strengthen democracy and parliament.
