20 August, 2017
MANSEHRA: Pakistan People's Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Zardari addressed the party rally in Mansehra where he slammed the political opponents, accusing Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan of 'lying'.
He highlighted the problems in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa's (KP) education system, saying there are inadequate arrangements, adding that PTI-led government is privatising healthcare system and destroying it.
Addressing a 'mammoth' public gathering in Mansehra, he acknowledged their services for the country's freedom, mentioning the efforts of PPP government in Hazara for the prosperity of the poor, provision of employment, health and education.
"Khan accuses everyone of corruption, his govt in KP did nothing for FATA reforms, IDPs and fight against terrorism," he said. Bilawal claimed that 2018 general elections will be his first and Kaptaan's last.
He said in the skipper's view everybody except him was involved in corruption. He said Khan boasted about KP Ehtesab Commission which arrested a sitting minister. "What happened to that poor minister's allegations of corruption against KP chief minister?" he asked.
"When investigation would be held into Khyber Bank scandal and mines contracts? I am not levelling allegations against Khan Sahib, these are the allegations levelled by PTI MNAs and MPAs."
Bilawal said Imran Khan was taking credit for reducing terrorism. "Did you ever speak against terrorists? It was you who called for talks with the Taliban, and it was you who gave funds to a madressa. It was you who opposed operation against terrorists."
Later on, Bilawal slammed Nawaz Sharif, saying, "The word 'revolution' doesn't suit you. You can be fascist and conspirator but not revolutionary."
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said "Mian Sahib could be a conspirator, a saboteur but not a revolutionary. You are guilty, you are not innocent . . ."
He criticised Nawaz for only appearing in parliament when he got into trouble, highlighting his rare visits to National Assembly and Senate, and damaging the public institutions.
He accused the former premier of corrupt practices and damaging the economy with weak policies. He also recalled that Nawaz Sharif took money from Osama Bin Laden and intelligence agencies to derail the government of Benazir Bhutto in past.
He said Nawaz placed the country under foreign debt and made fake claims about development. He opined that both the leaders don't have any solution to the nationwide problems while PPP's manifesto is for the poor, farmers, labourers, traders and people friendly.
"We will all join hands to make this country prosper," he hoped.
Separately, Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Khurshid Shah said the PPP will make the country Bhutto's Pakistan.
Addressing a public gather in Mansehra on Saturday, he said that politics of Nawaz Sharif had been brought up under the dictator Ziaul Haq and he laid foundation of politics of lies.
He said that farmers, labourers and poor people of the country were deprived of basic rights due to self directed policies of ruling PML-N. Politics of PPP gives equal rights to all citizens of the country, he added.
Shah said that PPP founding chairman Zulfikar Ali Bhutto always considered farmers, labourers and poor people as his real strength and asset.
