MULTAN: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has slammed PML-N and PTI for carrying ideologically same policies that abhor the masses and favour the elites as compared to PPP, which has always served the people and devised new avenues for peoples’ betterment and upliftment. Addressing a Workers Convention of the Party in Multan, the PPP Chairman urged upon the Jiyalas to spread the party message among the people in every nook and corner as the elections are approaching fast and it’s time to cater to people, who have suffered most at the hands of PMLN and PTI.
These two parties are right-winged parties and despite apparent rifts, their policies are same as anti-people and that these two parties only focus on country’s premiership and that is their biggest focus for being in politics.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that PPP had in 2009 launched the Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP), which facilitates the impoverished particularly the women. PPP’s Sindh government has also launched a Union-Council based Poverty Reduction Programme and this unique programme has so far pulled out 600, 000 families from stark poverty. This programme also lends mostly to women on interest-free basis so that they could plan for their better future and live a stable and self-reliant life.
PPP Chairman also spoke on province for the people of Southern Punjab and assured that he would keep visiting them frequently so that he could meet the workers and Jiyalas and convey the message of the Party to the masses. Bilawal Bhutto Zardari criticized PMLN, which has the incumbent government in the centre and said that its government has ruined country’s national institutions. It has ruined Pakistan Steel and PIA, which once used to be world’s No.1 airliner.
He said that under PPP, Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto carried land reforms and snatched big lands from the feuds and distributed them among the poor peasants. The PPP is the party of peasants, workers, students and the masses, he added.
PPP Chairman urged the Party workers to participate in JoinPPP campaign and attract maximum membership from the Party supporters and masses.
Former Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani, Nayar Hussain Bukhari, Makhdoom Shahabuddin, Natasha Daultana, Haider Zaman Qureshi, Khwaja Rizwan, Shaukat Basra, Abdul Qadir Shaheen and others were present on the occasion.
