ECP facilitating PTI

Islamabad 13 February 202: Pakistan Peoples Party has raised questions on the recent decision of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) on the issue of change in the Senate election schedule.

Secretary General PPP, Syed Nayyer Hussain Bukhari in a statement said that he had written a letter to the Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) giving logics and arguments to extend the date but he rejected the demand to extend the date. Now the decision of the ECP to change the schedule gives rise to suspicions. The date was extended only a day after the ECP refusal.

Syed Nayyer Hussain Bukhari further said that the ECP should clarify that why PPP demand was denied and under whose pressure the date was extended. Bukhari said that it is clear that the ruling party could not make a final decision on the tickets of the PTI candidates so the date was extended. The ECP has played the role of facilitator for the ruling party by changing the schedule. Bukhari said that the ECP is making the Senate elections controversial with such measures. He said that PPP expresses serious concerns over this decision and demanded clarification.

Chairman PPP Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on inflation and price-hike

ISLAMABAD/KARACHI, February 10: Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that selected Prime Minister Imran Khan was patronizing his henchmen and stooges who have unleashed worst-ever inflation and price-hike.

In a press statement, the PPP Chairman said that the unbearable rocketing of the prices of commodities and utility items have multiplied the sufferings of the people.

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that the selected government has failed to control inflation because its own people are involved in illegal profiteering thus it is for the first time in the history that a government was patronising unprecedented inflation. Prices and rates of electricity, gas and petroleum have gone through the roofs, he added.

He made it clear that the country can get rid of the cruel inflation and price-hike only through the ouster of incompetent, ineligible and illegitimate selected government of Imran Khan.

President Zardari condemns the treatment of government employees by PTI

Islamabad, 10 February 2021: Former President of Pakistan and President Pakistan Peoples Party Parliamentarians, Asif Ali Zardari has strongly condemned violence and use of tear gas on the government employees. He said that it has greatly pained him to see what happened in D-Chowk today.

President Zardari said that people who are just demanding an increase in their salaries should not be treated like enemies. He said that he had predicted how Imran Khan would act after coming to power. Imran Khan can do nothing but exploit the people. Why does it sting the PTI government to allow an increase in the salaries of government employees?

PPP raised salaries of government employees despite facing hurdles and difficult situations. The situation now has become so grim that small scale employees have fallen below the poverty line. President Zardari stated that the country cannot progress with the economic exploitation of government employees.

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that how long the people of Pakistan will tolerate this incompetent, incapable and illegitimate Prime Minister adding that establishment is being dragged into politics by those who are begging it to help them in the Senate elections and announced that there is will a march in March

HYDERABAD, February 9: Chairman Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that how long the people of Pakistan will tolerate this incompetent, incapable and illegitimate Prime Minister adding that establishment is being dragged into politics by those who are begging it to help them in the Senate elections and announced that there is will a march in March.
 
Addressing a massive public meeting PDM in Hyderabad hosted by PPP, the Chairman said that the present selected rulers had destroyed the economy, eroded democracy and restricted the media and the judiciary.
 
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that there was a talk not to drag the establishment into politics. Let the people know who is dragging it into politics? Those who say that every institution should work within its own Constitutional domain or those who hold their finger in politics and contest elections; those who ask it to stand inside and outside the polling stations. Or those who ask the establishment to take care of the media, get the budget approved, and go and take care of the angry friendly countries for or on behalf of the selected, the PPP Chairman questioned.
 
He pointed out that the Imran-led selected government has caused so much inflation that 50% of the households in Pakistan are suffering from malnourishment, as people are forced to cut their rations due to the unprecedented price-hike. “Before coming to power, Imran Khan used to say that he would commit suicide instead of going to the IMF, but in three years he took the biggest loan in history,” he added.
 
PPP Chairman said that no prime minister can say that Sindh is not his province, but the selected prime minister says that Sindh is not our province but he only needs Sindh’s islands, gas, coal, and tax revenue adding that you are a Prime Minister, if Sindh is not yours, then Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and Balochistan are also not yours.
 
He said that the selected Prime Minister knows how to rob the pockets of the people instead of solving their problems and he knows how to attack the Benazir Income Support Program, the 18th Amendment, and the NFC. “Sindh has been given Rs 116 billion less than the share it received under NFC Award last year and Rs 200 billion this year,” he added.
 
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that the people of Hyderabad will also be with us in the protest march of PDM and we will leave Karachi and we will all meet in Islamabad.
 
He said that the PDM was created to make the people the source of power, and to form a government that would protect the rights of the people and solve their problems.

Imran Khan attempting to make Senate elections controversial like the 2018 general elections and conceal his farcical majority: PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari

KARACHI, February 8: Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that the PTI government was attempting to make the Senate election controversial like 2018 general elections adding that the Sindh government will challenge the presidential ordinance on the open ballot in court.
 
Addressing a press conference at Media Cell Bilawal House, the PPP chairman said that we are ready to contest the Senate elections against the government even through open ballot, and angry members of the ruling party will vote against the regime despite the open ballot. “However, every citizen has the constitutional right to the secret ballot so that he can exercise his right to vote with complete privacy and without any pressure. This fundamental right is exercised in every election, but now the same right of the Assembly members is being attacked,” he added.
 
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that the reference regarding the Senate election is under hearing in the court, but the PPP will also challenge the Presidential Ordinance through the Sindh government, while Senator Mian Raza Rabbani and the provincial government will take a stand on the reference.
  
He said that there could be some rotten eggs who have sold their votes, but the majority of the members of the Assembly vote on the basis of their conscience. “If the PTI  government wanted electoral reforms it had ample time during last three years to consult other parties for Constitutional amendments but now by using unconstitutional means it has exposed its bad intentions,” he added.
 
PPP Chairman further said that the selected government had hoped that they would also be given open concessions in the Senate elections like in the last general elections, but when Imran Khan saw that the PDM was ready to contest and his members were also angry, he first filed a judicial reference and then tried to impose a constitutional amendment bill through the committee without any discussion.
 
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that if the conspiracy regarding the Senate elections was successful, it would be a major attack on democracy, Parliament and the electoral system. “if the Constitution of Pakistan is violated to satisfy the ego of a party and an individual, then it would make all the institutions controversial as the democratic parties want to stay with the system and struggle,” he stated.
 
PPP Chairman said that everyone knows that Imran Khan and PTI has no organic majority but these puppets have been imposed on us by undermining democracy and this key mistake is now dragging the economy of the country to destruction. “Imran Khan wants to conceal his farcical majority by trampling the Constitution and electoral laws, which won’t be allowed by the people of Pakistan,” he added.
 
He said that the PDM public meeting in Hyderabad would let the people of the country know what the people of Sindh wanted as they have already fought and given sacrifices during the popular movements of MRD and ARD.
 
Provincial Ministers Nasir Hussain Shah and Saeed Ghani, MNA Shazia Ata Marri and Jamil Soomro were also present on the occasion.
