Islamabad, 4 January 2021: Pakistan Peoples Party’s leaders Dr. Nafisa Shah, Palwasha Khan and Naz Baloch in a joint press conference held in Islamabad have slated the selected government of Imran Khan for creating havoc in the country.
Dr. Nafisa Shah has said that with the appointment of Sheikh Rasheed as interior minister a new wave of terror has arrived in Pakistan. A young student was killed by the very people who were supposed to protect his life and property. The unfortunate incident in Machh in which eleven miners were killed by terrorists on sectarian grounds has rattled the nation.
Dr. Nafisa Shah said that this anti-people government increased the petroleum prices on the new year. Every month, the electricity and gas bills are being increased on the directives of IMF. Imran Khan is the only person in all of Pakistan whose palace in Bani Gala was regularized, whereas the houses of poor people have been razed to the ground.
Palwasha Khan strongly condemning the killing of innocent student in Islamabad said that the interior minister does nothing besides issuing political statements against the opposition. The foreign minister does not know that every month, 20,000 people are being sent back to Pakistan from abroad. This government has alienated Pakistan in the global community.
Naz Baloch addressing the press conference said that even the white collar professionals are facing economic constraints in this government. On one hand, the government is using NAB as a tool of victimization whereas on the other, the government is protecting sugar, flour, medicine and fuel thieves.
The PPP leaders said that all the members of assemblies have submitted their resignations to the party leadership and they will be used at the appropriate time. They said that the government allies are abandoning the government because no one wants to be traveling in a sinking ship. They said that resignations are like a nuclear weapon and will be used at the end. The establishment should not interfere in politics and every institution should work within its domain according to the constitution.
