Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has proved that he is a representative of the elite class, not labourers and workers, says Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Shibli Faraz.

Talking to the media on Friday, Shibli said that Bilawal made an attempt to hold the federal government responsible for Sindh government’s incompetence. He said that coronavirus outbreak was a national issue and the nation would not forgive those who were playing politics on the pandemic. He said that he could not do anything about Bilawal’s ignorance, but regret it. He said that Ehsaas Emergency Cash Programme, free food distribution centres and shelter homes reflected Prime Minister Imran Khan’s association with the labour class. He said that Bilawal should do something practically instead of playing politics because this was the time to serve the nation. He said the government gave a Rs200 billion relief package keeping in view the problems of the labourers and daily wage earners. He said that Rs144 billion are being distributed to the poor and deserving people under the Ehsaas Emergency Cash Programme.
