Khuda Bux Brohi Thatta/Karachi
PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said on Sunday that his Long March was aimed to rid the people of inflation, loadshedding, shortage of gas and steer the country out the crisis.
This he said while addressing a public gathering on arrival in Thatta after starting his march from Karachi early on Sunday. He said that neither can Sindh nor Pakistan progress untill the PTI-led incumbent government is in power. He said Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf goverment had done nothing for betterment of people during it’s more than three years’ rule and rather has destroyed agricultural system by creating water and fertiliser shortage.
He said the PPP during its rule had employed a large number of youth, introduced, Benazir Income Support Programme to help deserving people and gave NFC award to provinces but the PTI government was trying to rollback it. He said that Imran has failed to fulfil his election promises for employing 10 million youth and giving 0.5 million homes to shelterless people. He was welcomed by people of Thatta, party workers, local leaders at Ghagar railway crossing, who were led by PPP district president and special assistant to CM Sindh, Sadiq Ali Memon, MPA Haji Ali Hassan Zardari, PPP district general secretary Imtiaz Qureshi, information secretary Syed Mahmood Alam Shah Bukhari and Sassui Palijo.
Earlier, in a brief address at the Quaid-e-Azam mausoleum before commencing the march, Bilawal said the Awami March is a “call of war against the PTI government and it’s time Imran Khan goes home”.
The Pakistan People’s Party began its long march on Sunday aimed to oust the PTI government and Prime Minister Imran Khan. The protesters are expected to reach Islamabad via 34 cities in Sindh and Punjab.
Bilawal raising the slogan of “go selected go”, said that Karachi is a city where people came from every province and that the economy of the country ran with their sweat and blood.
