KARACHI : Chairman of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Saturday said that only economic policies of his party can take country forward and vowed to provide basic necessities to masses if PPP comes into power.
In a statement issued from Media Cell Bilawal House today, Bilawal Bhutto said that PPP is the only party that formulates the budget while keeping in mind the monthly budget of a common man. Polices of right-wing parties intend to only benefit the elite class, he added.
The PPP Chairman compared Prime Minister Imran Khan’s failed government with PPP’s past governments and promised that “Roti, kapra aur makaan” will be provided to citizens the day PPP comes into power.
Bilawal Bhutto explained how the predicaments in Pakistan’s current policies had affected livelihoods. “The policies of right-wing parties have failed,” declared Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, “Only the economic policies of PPP can take the country ahead.”
He further highlighted that in the past, only PPP’s economic policies managed to make a difference. The economic policies then were formulated keeping in mind the common man’s monthly budget. “The policies of right-wing parties only benefit the rich,” Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari pointed out. “History stands witness to the “Roti, kapra aur makaan” promises that the Pakistan Peoples Party fulfilled.”
The PTI government, under the selected Prime Minister, on the other hand, has increased inflation to an extent where the monthly flour needs of a family of 5 are met at Rs 3,500. During PPP’s tenure, the flour needs of an ordinary family of 5 people cost Rs 1,975 per month.
Drawing comparisons with the current inflation rate, Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari revealed, “During the PPP regime, an ordinary family used to buy children’s clothes for Rs 600. It costs them Rs 3,600 today.”
He further continued, “When PPP was the ruling government, a typical family of five used to pay an average of Rs 3,500 house rent, but under PTI, it costs them Rs 22,000.”
However, these alarming statistics will continue to worsen if the puppet Prime Minister is not held accountable. While articulating comparisons between the PPP and PTI, Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari emphasized how inflation caused by a global economic crisis during PPP’s tenure was followed by a 59% increase in the common man’s income.
“The Pakistan Peoples Party increased salaries by up to 150% during its federal tenure so that the burden of the global economic crisis does not fall on the common citizen,” said Chairman PPP. “Inshallah, by forming the next government, Pakistan Peoples Party will continue to solve the basic problems of the people.” DNA
