Islamabad: Chairman of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and son of former Pakistani Prime Minister, Benazir Bhutto, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, slammed the Pakistan administration for the state of the country.
His strong words echoed the country’s fears about losing Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK) and about the pathetic state of its economy. Bhutto said that earlier Pakistan’s policy used to be on how to take Srinagar from India. However, now Pakistan is wondering how to save Muzaffarabad, located in PoK, from India.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari while speaking to reporters said, ” “What used to be our policy on Kashmir in the past? Earlier, Pakistan’s policy used to be how to snatch Srinagar from India. However, after Imran Khan assumed power…Pakistan’s position now is how to save Muzaffarabad.”
He was speaking after meeting his father and former President, Asif Ali Zardari, who is interned in Adiala Jail.
The chairman of the PPP blamed the Prime Minister, Imran Khan, for the plight and humiliation the country is passing through at the moment.
He added, “Whatever you did with democracy, we tolerated it. You ruined the economy, we tolerated that too. You kept on sleeping and once awake, you got busy in arresting the opponents. You kept on sleeping and Modi snatched Kashmir.”
Pakistan’s diplomatic moves to counter India after abrogation of Article 370 has failed miserably. All the world powers except China has supported India’s decision to scrap special status to Kashmir. Pakistan has been snubbed even by Muslim countries, which were traditionally supportive of Pakistan.
Adding to their humiliation is the pitiful state of the economy of Pakistan. While the country is striving for a bailout plan to save the economy from collapse, the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), an international organization monitoring terrorist funding, is mulling of putting the country on blacklist.
This could block Pakistan’s efforts to raise funds to salvage the economy. The country’s opposition leader’s words truly echoes the fears of the people of the country at the moment.
