Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has on Thursday claimed that his party will form government in Gilgit-Baltistan.
The PPP chairman addressed workers convention in Ghanche area of GB and said he is not a politician who will not keep his promises. I am Bhutto’s grandson and do not take U-turn, he added.
“See what Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has done to Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. You and I will change the fate of Gilgit-Baltistan by working together. I am not here only for election, I still stand by the promise I made in 2018.
“You will get freedom from the incumbent government just like you got it from Dogra rule. PPP is the only party which can give you rights as it gave to people and protected democracy.
“We are fighting against the selected government and hybrid system through the Pakistan Democratic Movement’s (PDM) platform. I urge people living abroad to visit GB first and then Sindh. We will open universities and campuses across the province.”
Addressing, a worker’s convention in Skardu district, the PPP leader said that the citizens of the country are deprived of their basic rights because the authorities sitting in Islamabad make decisions without analysing the real problems faced by the people living in a particular region.
“I am [Zulfiqar Ali] Bhutto’s grandson, not a [sports] player who takes U-turns from his promises. I have the same manifesto that I promised you earlier. It is quite a known fact about PPP, that the party provides employment to people, be it in Asif Ali Zardari’s tenure or Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto’s government,” Bilawal said, adding that the provision of employment opportunities and education will be one of the top agendas of the party.
Criticising the PTI-led regime for “historic inflation, poor education policies, and health reforms”, Bilawal said: “The treatment meted out to our lady health workers is reprehensible.
These workers ensure our health and this is how we are treating them. To date, Zardari’s launched health workers programme is facilitating the workers and that is what we envision for this region as well.”
