Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that Prime Minister Imran Khan is rolling back the China–Pakistan Economic Corridor project.
He was virtually addressing the Pakistan Democratic Movement’s third rally held at Ayub Stadium in Quetta on Sunday. Bilawal Bhutto said that the PPP would propose that priority should be given to local people in the CPEC project.
Counting the feats of his party, Bilawal said that PPP started Aghaz-e-Haqooq-e-Balochistan, gave National Finance Commission Award (NFC), allocated Higher Education Commission (HEC) quota for Baloch students and fulfilled the promise of the provincial autonomy in the form of the 18th Amendment.
The PPP chairman alleged Imran Khan wanted to use Sindh Police, Airport Security Force, Frontier Constabulary, Armed Forces, Rangers and intelligence agencies as Tiger Force.
Talking about democratic freedom in the country, Bilawal said: “What kind of freedom is this where the media and people are not free. The PDM platform will provide the freedom. Gujranwala gave a clear message to Islamabad. People of Karachi gave verdict in favour of the PDM. The PDM foundation laid down with great difficulty.
He also grilled the government for stopping MNA Mohsin Dawar from entering Balochistan for PDM public gathering.
“The people of Balochistan are honourable and they know how to get their rights,” Bilawal Bhutto said. He said people wanted freedom from poverty, unemployment and hunger.
Talking about NAB actions, Bilawal said that more people died in NAB custody than Guantanamo Bay detention camp.
The PPP chairman said he hoped that the Supreme Court of Pakistan would also hear the missing persons case, Shaheed Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto and Benazir Bhutto cases on daily basis.
