F.P. Report

LAHORE: Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Thursday said that if given chance to govern, his party will protect the country’s economy.

Talking to media in Lahore on Thursday, he said that they cannot support any undemocratic government and urged Leader of Opposition in National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif to return to the country and play his role in the prevailing situation.

The PPP chairman said that there was the highest level of inflation in the country due to the policies of the PTI government. It had broken all the previous records, he added

“Had Imran been honest there would have not been inflation at this high level,” said Bilawal Bhutto.

Bilawal went on to say that they would not close any door; all options including elections or in-house changes would be considered and applied.

“I was supportive of efforts aimed at ousting the incumbent government, but any such undertaking would have to be within the ambit of the Constitution for his party to support it.”

“The public and all opposition parties are on one-page,” said the PPP Chairman.

He also stated that Imran should clarify that how inflation was increasing, adding that the debt was also rising with every passing day.

Bilawal also rejected Govt and IMF deals and said that the government never cared about inflation during its meeting with IMF.

Earlier today, Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari chaired a consultative meeting during which some party leaders expressed displeasure over Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s (PML-N) inactive role in the opposition.

Bilawal Bhutto’s spokesman Senator Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar said PML-N leadership is abroad, vice-president is silent and Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shehbaz Sharif is nowhere to be found.

The PPP leaders maintained that only Bilawal Bhutto is playing his role as the opposition member. The silence of PML-N is raising questions, the PPP leaders remarked.
