Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has called for the opposition parties to mount a no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan.
He explained that this is with the view that it will be much more effective than the ongoing rallies of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) opposition alliance.
“Even 10 rallies will not yield the kind of results as a strategy meeting over a cup of tea, which is sure to cause the government to break a sweat,” Bilawal said, while addressing the inauguration ceremony of the Larkana Industrial Estate.
He said that he will speak to the opposition parties to “strike” in the assembly.
“The democratic way to send this incompetent, illegal, unqualified prime minister (away) is through a no-confidence motion,” said the PPP chairman.
Speaking of the newly-inaugurated project, Bilawal said that the Larkana Industrial Estate will benefit local industry and create employment opportunities.
He lamented the “damage” caused to the economy over the last two years, since the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) took the reins of power.
“The PTI government wishes to use brute force as a corrective measure to get the economy running,” he said, adding that the Sindh government “did not employ such tactics to collect tax”.
He also claimed that the provincial government had increased tax revenue.
The PPP chairman said that the Sindh government deems it its duty to take care of the business community, traders, and the underprivileged sections of society.
Bilawal said that a “Labour City” with this in mind had been inaugurated a few days ago in Sukkur.
The PPP chairman said that Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah will also release funds for an industrial zone in Larkana.
He said that in contrast, the people have yet to see the 10mn jobs and 5mn houses promised by the PTI government, adding that “Imran Khan’s approach in dealing with the industries is there for all to see”.
“The PPP and the chief minister are obstacles in the way of Imran Khan’s anti-people policies,” Bilawal charged.
He said the party’s people had been “targeted by the NAB (National Accountability Bureau)”.
Bilawal said: “We know what we have to do to get rid of non-democratic forces. The federation may have abandoned Sindh, but we never will.”
