This is selected govt with selected PM and selected ministers: Bilawal Bhutto
28 September, 2018
Pakistan People’s Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari continued his strongly worded criticism of the Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf government on Thursday.
Speaking to the media at the Parliament House, he said he was ready to face prison if that was the cost of speaking truth to power in the PTI government’s term. He said PPP leaders were imprisoned during Ziaul Haq and Pervez Musharraf’s governments, and they were ready to go to prison during Prime Minister Imran Khan’s term as well.
“We served prison sentences during Zia and Musharraf’s time and are ready to do so in PM Imran’s term as well,” the PPP chairman said.
Lashing out at the government, Bilawal said, “This is a selected government with a selected prime minister and selected ministers.”
He also criticised the mini-budget presented by the PTI-led government, and said it was unjust to the poor. “PTI vowed to make a common person’s life easier after coming into power but injustice has been done with the poor through the budget,” he said, “The budget only benefits non-filers and Prime Minister Imran Khan’s ATMs.”
