The government is running on auto-pilot mode
Islamabad, 13 October 2020: Senator Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar, the spokesman to the Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that narrative of the country should revolve around the problems faced by the people and measures to solve them but unfortunately due to this on auto-pilot government, the narrative of the government is of political victimisation.
He said this while addressing a press conference at the PPP media office Islamabad with Nazir Dhoki.
He said that people are crying under the burden of price-hike. Every food item from wheat to sugar and tomato to cooking oil have become out of the reach of people. A middle class person is unable to pay the fees of their children. The tariff of electricity and gas has shot up and people can no more afford these necessities for life.
Senator Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar said that a person who has resigned from one position can run the mega project like CPEC. The people have the right to know why he resigned or was forced to resign. He said that CPEC is not the priority of this government because if it were so then the government should have tabled this ordinance to make it an act of parliament. The government did not display seriousness on CPEC and if legislation was done for FATF then why not on CPEC, he asked. He said that if government brings legislation then the opposition will have to see it first and then it will take decision on the issue. He said that the PPP will not accept any head of CPEC whose credibility has become suspicious.
Senator Khokhar said that PPP will not accept any umpire and believes only on supremacy of law and the constitution. He said that government is trying its best to have a quarrel between institutions and the opposition but will fail miserably. The government has the narrative that the opposition is strengthening Indian narrative whereas the Army chief has very candidly said that constructive criticism is good for the system. The world recognizes the parliamentary system and the PPP wants supremacy of constitution and the parliament.
He said that Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari will lead a rally from Lala Musa to Gujranwala and the public gathering will be a success in Gujranwala. Then on 18th the PDM will have a public gathering in Karachi and then in Quetta.
Senator Khokhar said that by involving tiger force, Prime Minister wants to create anarchy in the country. He said that at the moment no country in the word trusts Pakistan and we have become lonely in the comity of nations. The PDM is going to people to present its case. He said that no one should believe in the disinformation the government is spreading on the issue of resignations from the parliament because we will cross the bridge when the time will come. He said that peaceful protests are the right of every citizen. He concluded that the government will be no more way before the resignations.
