    KARACHI: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari on Sunday claimed that Prime Minister Imran Khan “has no capability” to complete his term as all political forces of the country and people belonging to all spheres of life had no other option but to go on agitation against “this puppet government”.

    The PPP leader was speaking to the media while visiting the Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre (JPMC) where he was briefed by the administration chiefly about the performance of CyberKnife Robotic Radiosurgery System.

    Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah, Health Minister Azra Pechuho and Information Minister Saeed Ghani accompanied him. JPMC’s executive director, Dr Seemin Jamali received him and guided him to visit various departments of the hospital.

    He said the federal government was not competent to steer the country to the right direction, which was the reason that everyone across Pakistan was raising voice against its “anti-people” policies.

    In the same breath, however, Mr Bhutto-Zardari said his party would certainly protest against the “selected” government, yet, “we’ll not become part of any act to derail democracy; or allow anyone to do the same”.

    The PPP leader said he was not seeing the government to last long for creating self-inflicting hard conditions.

    “Everyone is fed up with this puppet government,” said Mr Bhutto-Zardari.

    “Every political party and people belonging to every sphere of life, including traders, teachers, doctors and workers, are unhappy with the government’s policies. All this is quite not up to scratch and gives me no assurance to say Mr Imran Khan will complete his term successfully.”

    He said the federal government should take measures that could create unity and consensus among the people of Pakistan; but that could not be possible without solving people’s problem.

    “Instead of using NAB (National Accountability Bureau) and Rangers to rig elections of tiny significance, the prime minister should forge unity among people by solving their problems,” he said.

    While assuring that his party would not allow derailing democracy in Pakistan, he asked the government to resolve issues in a civilised manner as running a country was far different from playing cricket.

    He said PPP’s campaign from Karachi to Kashmore and Maulana Fazlur Rehman’s “Freedom March” were equally significant and against the incompetence of the “selected government”.

    However, Mr Bhutto-Zardari had a piece of advice for fellow political parties belonging to the opposition to exercise restraint while protesting against the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf’s government to ensure that that should not allow the undemocratic forces to intervene.

    He warned the PPP would be on its historic mode against dictatorial rule if another martial law was imposed on the country.

    Regarding the Sindh government’s focus on improving health care system, he said the JPMC was the best public sector hospital in the country, which was “much better” than the Lady Reading Hospital, Peshawar.

    “JPMC is a hospital which offers free of charge the facility like CyberKnife, which is popularly called as the magic knife or magic wand.”

    MITHI: Pakistan Peoples Party chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari said on Wednesday the opposition parties were gearing up to throw out of power the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) which “was imposed on the masses through rigged elections” last year.

    Addressing a big public meeting in Islamkot, he claimed the days of misrule by the PTI-led government had been numbered and said that after the ouster of Imran Khan’s party the people would be able to elect their new rulers.

    “We have begun our decisive protest movement by staging a huge power show first in Karachi and now in Thar,” said the PPP chairman.

    After organising the next big event in Kandhkot, he said, his party would move to towns and cities in Punjab, in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and then to Islamabad to get rid of the “incompetent rulers who have made people’s lives miserable”.

    Mr Bhutto-Zardari said the media was being muzzled and the “selected rulers” were not allowing fair prices to be paid to farmers for their produce. On top of that the rights of the provinces were being trampled upon.

    He claimed the PTI had failed to run the country efficiently and had even compromised on the issue of occupied Kashmir, adding that it would be difficult for the ruling party to survive if all the democratic forces mounted a sustained movement against its flawed and anti-people policies.

    The PPP chief criticised the PTI-led government for launching what he called controversial projects, like the Jhelum Link Canal, and for not allowing a second member from Sindh to be appointed to the Indus River System Authority despite protests by the Sindh government.

    He alleged that Sindh was not being given its due share of water, adding that his party would resist the injustices and would not allow anybody to “occupy Karachi”. “We will neither allow them to occupy Karachi nor would we let them steal our water,” he remarked.

    Without naming members of the Grand Democratic Alliance, Mr Bhutto-Zardari said leaders of the alliance were hatching conspiracies against the PPP government in Sindh. “Imran Khan is already a zalim [cruel leader] but those having stars [as their election symbol] are of the same mindset,” he said, asking the gathering to reject such leaders in future.

    He urged the people to stand with him just as they did with his grandfather Z.A. Bhutto and his slain mother Benazir Bhutto during their long struggles against undemocratic forces.

    He said that price hike and other ill-advised policies of the present government had served to “break the back of common people” living in every corner of the country.

    He said the opposition parties were on the same page to get rid of the rulers who were creating hatred and unrest among the provinces through their “illegal moves and policies”.

    The PPP chairman praised the Sindh government and the power company that managed to produce electricity from Thar coal much before the scheduled time. He expressed the hope that the firm would help bring about a revolution of sorts by building power plants in other blocks of the coalmine.

    The federal government created a number of hurdles in the way of the project, but the PPP leaders were focused on the mega projects to fulfil the dream of his mother, who had dreamt of one day fully tapping into the resources of Thar, he said.

    The electricity being generated in Islamkot is currently being supplied to Faisalabad, but the PPP government had decided to provide 100 units of power free of cost to the people of the area, Mr Bhutto-Zardari said.

    He said his party was determined to change the fate of the desert region by launching a number of development schemes there. He said he had fulfilled his promise of establishing a campus of the NED engineering university in the region within six months. The campus would be inaugurated in Mithi on Thursday (today), he said.

    Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah, Nisar Ahmed Khuhro, Dr Mahesh Kumar Malani, Senator Krishna Kumari Kolhi, Senator Gyanchand, Qasim Siraj Soomro, Rana Hamir Singh, Veerji Kolhi, Arbab Lutfullah and other PPP leaders also spoke on the occasion.

    In these difficult times, Prime Minister Imran Khan should voluntarily resign and appoint someone else in his stead, said PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Monday, as tensions between the centre and Sindh government continue to rise as COVID-19 cases continue to spike across the country.

    The PPP chairman, in his interview with Sindhi language news channels, slammed the prime minister, blaming him for a lack of consensus in the country on how to tackle the COVID-19 situation.

    "We [PPP] have been demanding the prime minister to step down since day one," said Bilawal. "Keeping in mind the coronavirus situation, I am not asking for his resignation. But Imran Khan should start working as a prime minister. He should play his role in uniting provinces in this crisis."

    He urged PM Imran to voluntarily resign under these difficult circumstances and appoint someone else in his stead. The PPP chairman said that a national consensus was necessary to win the fight against the coronavirus. "The whole state should be on the same page against the coronavirus," he said, adding that the prime minister was responsible for the absence of it. "The federal government is responsible for ensuring a consensus is reached."

    Bilawal praised Sindh government for providing relief to the masses as cases in the province continue to surge. "Sindh government is taking brilliant steps to provide relief to people," he said. "CM Sindh has also joined hands with welfare organisations. People are being provided relief today due to the initiatives taken by the PPP," he added.

    He said that Sindh government was about to kick off "phase two" of its plan to ward off the coronavirus. "We are providing relief to the people despite facing a shortage of resources," he said.

    Referring to criticism over his statement on Karachi and Sindh a few days ago, Bilawal said that some people were presenting his remarks in a negative light and taking them out of context. "I consider it an insult to answer these [accusations]," he said, adding that those who were criticising him were working on their agenda to break up Sindh.

    PPP lambastes federal government over non-availability of PPE for doctors

    The remarks came a few days after the PPP chairman hit out at the federal government in a fiery presser, slamming it for neglecting doctors and medical officers throughout the country.

    "Can you imagine Pakistan declaring war and sending its army without guns, bullets, and a uniform?" he had said.

    The PPP chairman had lamented that the doctors were only demanding two things — protective gear and a reduced burden on hospitals so that they may carry out their jobs more effectively.

    "The prime minister has failed to deliver [...] He mentioned daily wagers in all of his addresses, but sadly none of them has received a single dime yet," he had regretted.

    It is our responsibility to provide for them like we would provide for our armed forces, he said, adding: “We are trying to provide for our doctors who are in contact with COVID-19 patients, I know that all provincial governments are playing their due role as well.”

    "But the Centre should also play its role in supporting the provinces in the war against coronavirus," he had said.

    PTI leaders hit out at Bilawal

    Following his press conference, tensions rose between the federal government and the Sindh government as PTI leaders Ali Zaidi and Dr Shahbaz Gill attacked the PPP chairman for his diatribe against the centre.

    "I had a good laugh watching his 'show' on TV," Zaidi had said. "I can't understand why people take him seriously. If he makes silly statements, he will be called stupid," he added.

    "Where is this money going," he asked. "I don't know who advises this man. This man is a joke on national TV. He doesn't know anything at all and his party is in power in Sindh for the past 12 years," he added.

    Former Punjab information minister Dr Shahbaz Gill lashed out at Bilawal too, saying that the PPP chairman's press conference was an admission of his failure to manage the coronavirus situation.

    "You and your chief minister are responsible for people from Lyari to Landhi, not the federal government," Gill had written on Twitter.

    ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Communications and Postal Services Murad Saeed Saturday said Pakistan People’s Party chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari is creating confusion, ARY News reported.

    “The ‘accidental chairman’ of the PPP, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari should provide facilities to people”, Murad Saeed was quoted as saying in his statement.

    The minister said Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has progressed through ‘parchi’ [without merit] and has come to create confusion.

    “The federal government granted Rs 12,000 apiece among 12 million families. Junior Zardari must tell where his government distributed ration as people are protesting on roads and asking for the ration.

    “The provinces are financially independent. The money is for people, not for fake bank accounts. There would have been facilities in the province had the 5.5 billion rupees for healthcare not gone into fake accounts.”

    Earlier on April 21, Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari had said providing relief to those in need at their doorstep is a commendable act.

    He had lamented that no additional funds had been given to the provinces by the federal government to fight the coronavirus.

    The PPP leader had got a detailed briefing on the situation in Larkana from Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah via a video link.

    Bilawal calls out govt over conditions in Taftaan, not stopping Raiwind Ijtima

    PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari says federal borders are the responsibility of the federal government and therefore it should have ensured proper management of Pakistanis arriving from Iran through Taftan

    "You couldn't test them, you couldn't quarantine them. I'm not saying it's their fault. I'm saying it's your fault," he told the treasury benches in NA.

    "Why wasn't the Raiwind Ijtima stopped? Our Tableeghi brothers should've been informed [about the virus threat]."

    BISP funds being distributed under Ehsaas programme, says Bilawal
    PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari has claimed that the federal government is distributing funds to the poor set aside for the Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP) under its Ehsaas programme.

    He said the virus has broken the backs of the Pakistani people and although he appreciated the Ehsaas programme, "I must point out that whatever money you had for BISP is now being distributed as Ehsaas. Where's your own contribution?"

    "Now you are easing the lockdown. When there was lockdown where was the relief for the working class and middle-class families?" Bilawal said, addressing the government.

    Covid-19 crisis has revealed the PM's 'ineptitude': Bilawal
    PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari says the coronavirus crisis has exposed "the true faces" of world leaders including US President Donald Trump, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and "unfortunately it has also revealed our own prime minister's ineptitude".

    Addressing the treasury benches, he said: "What you spoke about today wasn't based on facts. You are only scoring political points. We only need help; we don't need or want politics."

    He alleged that the federal government is "constantly undermining" Sindh's efforts to fight the outbreak, due to which he said the people of Pakistan will suffer and not the Sindh government.

    There was a need for PM to lead the entire country, not just PTI: Bilawal
    PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari says Prime Minister Imran Khan should have shown he was the prime minister of the entire country and "not just the PTI".

    Speaking in the National Assembly, he had given a message at a press conference to the Centre that "we will fight this pandemic keeping aside political differences."

    Instead, he alleged, the lawmakers and the people of Sindh were targeted and abuse by members of the government.

    Bilawal asks Qureshi to retract statement on PPP fanning provincialism or resign

    PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari on Tuesday demanded that Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi retract his statement accusing the Sindh government of fanning provincialism.

    "When I talk about Sindh, they accuse me of playing the Sindh card. But when I talk about Balochistan or KP or Gilgit-Baltistan, they don't accuse me of playing the provincial card?

    "I want that minister (Qureshi) to take back his statement. If he can't take it back, then I demand his resignation. Unacceptable!" said Bilawal at a press conference that was held hours after the Senate session ended.


    The PPP chairman was responding to comments made by Qureshi during a special Senate session to debate the government's policy on the Covid-19 pandemic.

    Qureshi — who earlier heard stinging criticism of the PTI-led government on the floor of the House by Senator Sherry Rehman — had lashed out at the PPP benches, saying that a party which once "stood for the federation now reeks of provincialism" and rejected claims that the Centre had left Sindh on its own amidst the pandemic.

    "This is not the PPP of the past, which was a symbol of the federation. Today, I sense the roots of provincialism in the party," the foreign minister said.

    "Karachi is as much ours as it is yours. Sindh is ours. Sindh's capital is ours; even now the people of Karachi support PTI and our allied party MQM," he said, and told PPP senators in the legislature to "get ready" as the PTI would also make inroads in Sindh, "just like we did in Punjab and KP".

    Bilawal called the foreign minister's comments a "slap on the face".

    "We want to save our country and this man is talking about proving political mettle in Sindh? Not everything is about politics. We should avoid playing up these debates during a global health crisis.

    "My efforts are in front of the people. When I got the chance yesterday [during the National Assembly session], I put forward my view in front of the people, and look at how we were abused in return. It's sad."

    Bilawal also took the opportunity to criticise Prime Minister Imran Khan for his absence in yesterday's NA session.

    "PM Imran should have attended and explained his point of view because he is the leader of the government [...] he want workers, labourers to go to work but will not step outside to fulfil his basic duty."

    Centre always speaks negatively: Murtaza Wahab
    Earlier, Sindh government spokesperson Murtaza Wahab had also responded to Qureshi's comment, saying it was actually the federal government that "reeks of prejudice".

    Addressing a press conference in Karachi, Wahab said the PTI-led federal government always talked "negatively".

    "I want to give a reply to the champions who talk negatively about the 18th Amendment. When National Institute of Cardiovascular Diseases (NICVD) was devolved to the Sindh government in 2011, it was only on Rafeequi Shaheed Road and its budget was Rs700 million. The Sindh government established satellite centres of the institute in several cities and its budget after the 18th Amendment is Rs11 billion. People from all over Pakistan come to get treated there," he said.

    He questioned whether the PTI — which has been in power in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa for the last seven years — could boast of even one such hospital where people of Sindh could go and receive quality treatment for free.

    Wahab claimed that the federal government had put on a "lens of prejudice and was unwilling to take it off".

    "Take the example of Sindh Institute of Urology and Transplantation (SIUT). 8,500 people benefited from treatment at the hospital in the last year. These people were from all over Pakistan and even Pakistanis living abroad who came here to get treatment. We gave land for the Indus Hospital where thousands of people are treated for free," he said, listing the provincial government's achievements.

    "The Centre does not give even a rupee for any of these health institutes. People from all over Pakistan and even those living abroad are treated here which proves we do not believe in provincialism. Our vision is to serve," Wahab added.

    He questioned why Prime Minister Imran did not visit Sindh since the pandemic began. "He goes to all the provinces but he does not come here. Tell us, then who is biased?" Wahab asked.

    "We have offered them again and again to work together. Just because you have conflicts with [Sindh government] doesn't mean you can undermine all [our] good work."

    When is Murtaza Wahab going to be held accountable for the murder his security protocol committed a few years back as reported by Pak media?

    Apparently, PPP have only opened those businesses in the province that will allow them to continue their looting of Sindh which is concealed by the 18th amendment.

    The other thing they are good at is abusing and threatening the media when questioned about the use of trillions of rupees for the health budget.

    Former president Asif Ali Zardari on Wednesday said that Prime Minister Imran Khan is following in the footsteps of Gen (retd) Pervez Musharraf and maintained that the incumbent government has ruined the national consensus in the country.

    Speaking to PPP leader Qamar Zaman Kaira on the coronavirus crisis and the evolving political situation in the country, Zardari criticised the government, saying that it wants to curtail the constitutional and financial powers of provinces.

    "This government is fighting the opposition instead of fighting coronavirus," he said.

    Referring to PPP's past tenure, the former president stated that when he[Asif Ali Zardari] came to power in 2008, the country was a victim of terrorism and division.

    "We conducted the Swat operation through national consensus and brought peace [throughout the country]," the former president asserted.

    'PPP playing the Sindh card'

    The PPP and the PTI have been trading barbs over the past few weeks. Yesterday, after being criticised for the second consecutive day by Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi in the Parliament House, PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto had demanded that the foreign minister either withdraw his statement against PPP or resign from his position.

    The foreign minister had earlier addressed a session of the Senate, where he spoke at length about PPP’s style of governance and the participation of the province in national decision-making.

    FM Qureshi had said that the PPP was focused on only provincial politics rather than thinking for the entire country. He also said that it was not true that the federal government had abandoned Sindh.

    In reaction to Qureshi’s criticism, Bilawal had said that the minister had also accused him of using the "Sindh card".

    Bilawl said that he had been raising his voice for issues pertaining to the provinces, without any such intention in mind.

    Responding to Qureshi’s comments that the PTI will make inroads in Sindh as it did in other provinces such as Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Bilawal had said: “What sort of politics is this? What do you mean you will prove your political mettle in Sindh?”

    He had said that politicking of this nature damages the federation and it goes against national unity.

    It means your Wadera days are numbered now and the PTI are coming for you. Sindh is a disaster zone at the moment. Hardly any healthcare, kids dying from HIV, famine, rabies, no real civic facilities e.g. collecting rubbish etc.

    Other provinces are moving forward while PPP'istan is a hell hole that hasnt moved on from 1993..

    Would you believe that even ex-FATA now has Rescue 1122 while in the largest city in the country citizens have to call Edhi (a private org) if they need an ambulance. I don't care if interior Sindh keeps voting for Bhutto for next 50 years, they are themselves responsible for their miserable state. But Karachi hasn't voted for PPP for decades and still we are stuck with them, PTI must do everything in its power to bring Karachi under local rule.

    I was watching videoes from last year showing the state of karachi. i used to live there and i never remembered it being that bad. i mean it wasnt singapore but defence clifton muhammed ali society and areas around karsaz, bahadurabad werent so bad. Also tariq road was a pretty decent area. I used to live in blk 7 of Gulshan iqbal and it was great. used to ride my bike with friends, play cricket, etc..Of course altaf bhai destroyed that and I have never been back.

    But it looks like a complete dive now. what have they done to it? Maybe it should be designated a federal area like Islamabad and just taken over by the govt? or designate it a province in all but name? Give it some fancy name like special municipality or something and circumvent the inevitable sindhi desh traitor backlash from the waderas..

    The solution to this, like all problems in rural Punjab and Sindh is land reform, this will end feudal power. Limit the amount of land each family can own, and tax agricultural income.

    Talking in a posh accent sounds good but the ground reality is that he heads a party of feudals, who kill people if they oppose them or even dare report facts. They steal from the poorest and weakest and use the money to live in luxury. The PPP really are disgusting and Billo is leading it.

    This is what MQM has been demanding for decades. Unless this happens people like CM Murad Ali Shah will just keep on doing their dramay baziyan and lining the Pockets of Zardari at the expense of Urban and rural Sindh’s populations. PPP just use the ethnicity card to keep hold of provincial resources.

    Bilawal needs to invest in some personal grooming. He showed glimpses of potential some years earlier in his BBC interview, and as much as I don’t even like ZAB or Benazir, they had way more statesmanship capabilities in the way they conducted themselves and presented their public image. From the way Bilawal rather than raising himself a level higher he lowers himself to the level of most Pakistani politicians, to his unkempt hair, to his misfitted clothes, he’s really let himself go.

    He has the potential to speak smartly, and it would gain him far more followers. He just doesn’t use this at all and resorts to inflated controversial comments and big statements without any real action. And this is me conceding this as someone who doesn’t like him.

    PTI govt has been unable to deliver on Covid, alleviating poverty: Bilawal

    PPP Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari has said that the PTI government has been unable to deliver on the coronavirus pandemic, alleviating poverty and ensuring food security.

    "I think this pandemic is one of Pakistan's greatest challenges, which is why it is so unfortunate that PTI's government does not prioritise the social welfare and protection of the people. Our working class needs support, our middle class needs support, our poor needs support."

    PPP Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari has said that the Sindh government's budget goes "one step ahead" in alleviating poverty during a difficult time.

    Speaking to a press conference in Karachi, he said: "Our poverty alleviation programme will continue. Our agricultural sector budget will provide loans to farmers and small businesses. These kind of support projects are important to alleviate poverty in the province.

    "Our hope was that the federal budget would be a pandemic budget. And if it was a pandemic budget, all the political parties would've endorsed it similar to how during a war, all the political parties unite to protect their country."

    PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto on Wednesday said that contrary to the impression given by PTI ministers, PPP leaders do not want any concession or any NRO, adding that the party will continue to give a "tough time" to the government.

    The PPP chairman was addressing a press conference in Lahore, where he once again challenged Prime Minister Imran Khan for a debate either in the parliament or on TV.

    “PM Imran is so brave that he makes a speech in our absence,” said Bilawal, adding “Imran Khan is a PM for PTI's social media only”.

    “Imran Khan is not willing to come in front of us,” said the PPP chairman, adding that the prime minister is the first leader to have failed in evolving national consensus regarding the Kashmir issue.

    “If Osama Bin Laden is a martyr then what is your stance on Zarb-e-Azb (operation), Swat Operation, and the APS attack?” he said.

    The PPP chairman said that Pakistan needs a mature prime minister, who can tackle its problems.

    ‘Pandemic not subsiding’
    Bilawal said the coronavirus pandemic is not subsiding in Pakistan as being claimed by the government.

    “The government has not taken any step to deal with the coronavirus (pandemic),” he said, adding that the healthcare workers in Punjab should get risk allowance.

    The prime minister has not met with doctors or the medical staff, he has only met the rich people, said Bilawal.

    He said that Pakistan is facing unprecedented challenges but it can be seen in the budget that education, health and unemployment have not been given any priority.

    ‘PM himself talking about minus one, not us’
    Bilawal Bhutto said that the opposition parties are not talking about the ‘minus-one’ formula but PM Imran himself brought up the subject.

    He said that whenever democracy faced threats, PPP played a vital role in its preservation.

    “According to the Auditor General’s report, within a year corruption worth Rs270 billion was done,” said Bilawal adding the PM should provide accountability in this regard.

    “The sugar commission was also an NRO, which was given to Buzdar, Tareen and Asad Umar,” he said.

    Bilawal said that the government’s each policy seems to be based on the principle of NRO.

    He said that the PTI-led government is exacerbating the crises as it has failed to deal with them in an appropriate manner.

    “Jang and Geo Editor-in-Chief Mir Shakil-ur-Rahman is still in prison without any crime,” he said.

    Speaking on the plane crash and recent debacle regarding the credentials of pilots, Bilawal said the government turned the crash into an excuse to privatise the national airline.

    “Our pilots are known for their expertise around the world.”

    ‘Pakistan proud of Sindh police for thwarting PSX attack’
    Bilawal Bhutto said that the entire country is proud of Sindh police for thwarting the Pakistan Stock Exchange attack, in which four terrorists were killed.

    “Policeman Rafique Soomro from Umerkot killed two terrorists,” said Bilawal, adding that timely action from Sindh police saved the nation from catastrophic damage.

    He said that Pakistan’s economy improved due to the sacrifices rendered by police and Rangers personnel.

On the one hand we Billo have , a "man" that gets journalists killed, we have his father a crook that has been involved in 100s of murders and then we have their bearded Phuphi who is just interested in living a life of luxury and looking important whilst pretending to be religious.

    Expect opposition alliance to pick up speed in coming days because, RECENTLY, for the first time, supporters of Presidential System have outweighed and outnumbered the opponents.

    The crooks have shown their hand and there is no doubt that you are right. But the problem for them is that they would normally do some dharna but that's not possible in the middle of pandemic. So Phuppi Diesel can't use the kids to create the lashay he needs. Sooner or later they will bring a confidence motion but if they lose IK def has the full 5 years and unless the JT group turns against IK, he ain't losing.

    Meetings of CM with PMLn/PPP lawmakers after every 3 months are arranged only to give a message to Intra Party Groups in PTI. These meetings are a way of warning the Forward Block aspirants within PTI.

    Rumours for presidential form of government growing. Apparently we might have a referendum in the new year to see if people want presidential form of government or the present parliamentary system.

    Previously I was against it because of Punjab's numerical superiority only that person would become president who is acceptable to Punjab and that would mean someone like Nawaz Sharif could be elected and he won't even have to care about developing any of the other provinces since he could just win from Punjab. However, that seems to be happening now as well. PTI government is making strides in creating the Seraiki province so some of these fears may be allayed.


    Whenever we have had presidential system (military dictators) our economy has grown in the 7-10% range since power is concentrated at one point and this gives the country stability and direction. Even the strongest PMs with clearest majorities haven't managed to achieve anywhere near the growth rate achieved during presidential systems. A PM always has to induct his cronies and allies in the cabinet and make concessions to keep everyone happy. I do think presidential system could work in Pakistan, provided we have a strong local government system. Funny thing is military dictators have always implemented lg systems but 'democratic' leaders have done away with it and relied on commissioners etc.


    Also one more factor in favour of presidential system is that the strongest countries in the world all have it or some form of it USA, China, Russia, Germany (I think), Turkey etc. The Brits left but still kept us colonized with his dysfunctional form of government.


    Anyways it's the people's decision, if the referendum does take place and it comes out in favour of presidential system then things could get very interesting in politics.

    The present system gives too much power to corrupt Mna's, I like the concept of the Presidential form of govt because it stops the need to keep complete losers in the cabinet because if you kick them out your majority is threatened. The American model is the best as the President brings his own team from wherever he needs and the legislative branch do the oversight. Your point about Punjabi dominance is valid and to get around that you could have an electoral college with more weighting given to the other provinces and I would add that the VP must by law come from a different province.

    The Forward blocks are essentially guys that seek the highest bidder and we know that NS and AZ have those billions to spend and will offer the money to keep them in their parties. JT is angry and my guess is that his group will wait for the opportunity to take revenge on IK. But Kaptaan did the right with the Sugar mafia and just needs to see it through.

    I would have all big Cities with elected Mayor's and their own local govt. For example Lahore, PIndi, Karachi should have their own Mayor's, directly elected and I would reduce the power of Provincial govts and give more power to LG.

    That is what Musharraf had done. The most development that happened in the past 20 years in Karachi was under local bodies Nazims (Niamatullah & Mustafa Kamal).
    Police for all these cities need to be de-coupled from Provincial Police and put under direct control of the Mayor.

    18th Amendment, NFC Award: Zardari, Fazl vow 'no flexibility'


    KARACHI: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F) leadership has agreed to continue with their inflexible stance on the 18th Amendment and the NFC Award pledging to pursue political consensus for the country's integrity and security.

    JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman called on the former President Asif Ali Zardari and Chairman PPP Bilawal Bhutto Zardari at Bilawal House Larkana on Friday. They discussed the political situation of the country for about half and an hour where Maulana Fazlur Rehman also inquired about the health of President Asif Ali Zardari.

    Talking to the JUI-F leader, President Asif Ali Zardari said that there would be no compromise on anti-people budget and NFC Award adding that he had already predicted that Imran Khan was incapable and incompetent to govern.

    Asif Ali Zardari further said that he had warned the government last year about the locust attacks but the regime didn't take this seriously due to prejudice and stubbornness. "There could be a worst food crisis in the country if locust attacks were not warded off and repulsed," he added.

    He observed that people are looking towards the Opposition to get rid of the selected government as incompetence of the Imran Khan regime has now been fully exposed due to mismanagement of COVID-19 crisis unleashing nation-wide confusion.

    Speaking during the meeting, PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari pointed out that corruption has multiplied during Imran Khan regime but he was using NAB for victimization of Opposition politicians only.

    PPP Chairman further said that two years have passed but Imran Khan regime has taken not a single step in the interest of the masses adding that all the Opposition parties are on one page against the selected government.

    Maulana Fazlur Rehman was in consensus with the stance of PPP leadership and stated that PTI government has destroyed the country's economy to the worst level.

    He said that growth rate of the country never went down into minus in the history emphasizing that everyone has to challenge the selected rulers to save the country and its economy as well.

    'You are not fooling anyone': Bilawal challenges govt claim of falling virus cases

    PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari has accused the government of lowering the coronavirus testing capacity under a "conspiracy" to show that infections in the country are falling.

    "[PM] Imran Khan and his ministers make a mockery of themselves when they say our graph is going down ... if you stop testing then the graph will go down; you will not see patients, but the same amount of people will fall ill and die," he said at a press conference.

    He said the government by allegedly not doing enough tests is putting the lives and health of people in more danger. "This is a conspiracy against the people. You are not fooling anyone," he added, addressing the government.

    As Billo has control of Sindh under the 18th, Has Billo increased testing in Sindh? Has Sindh seen an improvement because if he is right then Karachi and Sindh should soon have a big drop and Punjab and KP both having large increases.

    This is what I meant when I posted in another thread that this British parliamentary system cannot work in Pakistan. We need a presidential system where the person at the top has considerable power, much like USA. Only such a person can bring the necessary reforms and can ensure stability in a diverse country like Pakistan. It is inevitable and the only solution, present system is too corrupt and dysfunctional.

    This is a pivotal moment in our history. Imran and Bajwa has this golden opportunity where majority of population is behind them and opposition is almost non existent. They should act in next two years or otherwise history will not remember them favourably for messing up such an opportunity.

    PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said on Tuesday that the PTI did not have any answers to the questions that he was asking from the government and had still not accepted his challenges.

    Taking to Twitter, the PPP chairman said that he addressed a press conference on Monday to speak regarding the failures of the PTI-led government, the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the Kashmir issue, the economic situation of the country and other matters.

    The PPP chairman said his first challenge to PM Imran was to have a face-off with him and other political party leaders, either in the parliament or on TV.

    The other one was to compare the National Institute of Cardiovascular Diseases (NICVD) – a chain of hospitals across Sindh – with any of those formed by the PTI government.

    Bilawal said that the third challenge was to compare the per capita coronavirus testing in Sindh and Punjab/ Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (both with the PTI in power).

    The PPP chairman has time and again asked the prime minister to have a debate with him on the political issues of the country.

    ‘PTI failed to unite nation on Kashmir cause’
    The PPP chairman, in his press conference on Monday, said that Prime Minister Imran Khan is a threat to democracy and slammed the government’s foreign policy on Kashmir.

    “Imran Khan is the first and the last prime minister who failed to unite the nation on the Kashmir cause.”

    Every government in the past — dictatorship, democratic, selected, or elected — was able to unite the people on the cause of Kashmir, he had said, adding: “I am surprised that despite all these problems, prime minister, on the floor of the house, said that PTI’s foreign policy has been the most successful.”

    Reacting to the criticism Sindh has been facing for its response towards coronavirus, Bilawal had said that the province had the highest testing capacity per capita, free of cost treatment for patients, and free tests for the virus were being conducted in the province.

    “Our Intensive Care Units (ICU) and High Dependency Units (HDU) are more than any province. The [Centre] celebrated 100 days of battling coronavirus in the National Command and Control Centre, while Sindh inaugurated a 50-bedded hospital,” he had stated.

    Taking to Twitter, the PPP chairman said that he addressed a press conference on Monday to speak regarding the failures of the PTI-led government, the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the Kashmir issue, the economic situation of the country and other matters.

    the failure of Sindh is becoming ever more stark as cases and numbers fall across the rest of the country.

    The PPP chairman said his first challenge to PM Imran was to have a face-off with him and other political party leaders, either in the parliament or on TV.

    when the election comes then prepare yourself. Prior to that please handle Murad Saeed and answer questions around the PPP's involvment in murder,terrorism and organised crime in Lyari.

    The other one was to compare the National Institute of Cardiovascular Diseases (NICVD) – a chain of hospitals across Sindh – with any of those formed by the PTI government.

    The PTI govt is concerned with primary care, and prevention, by providing universal healthcare to all citizens through Ehsaas. Cardiovascular insititutions should be integrated into the overall care system. The reduction of these insitutions should be the aim by reducing the instances of cardio vascular disease. Primary and tertiary care in Sindh is worse than sub saharan africa.


    Bilawal said that the third challenge was to compare the per capita coronavirus testing in Sindh and Punjab/ Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (both with the PTI in power).

    More cases, more deaths, more testing required. the management of the virus in Sindh has been a disaster

    The PPP chairman has time and again asked the prime minister to have a debate with him on the political issues of the country.

    You dont debate with a dead duck. He should worry about his own party and whether it will survive into the next election. The political issues in this country are largely of the making of his father and others. Why debate with him and allow him to use useless soundbites to deflect attention from his failures? first answer Ali zaidi and Saeed then ask for a debate.

    ‘PTI failed to unite nation on Kashmir cause’
    The PPP chairman, in his press conference on Monday, said that Prime Minister Imran Khan is a threat to democracy and slammed the government’s foreign policy on Kashmir.

    Feb 2019 says otherwise. Also IK speech in the UN assembly raised even more awareness. The nation is united. Again the PPP should stop with the empty soundbites.

    “Imran Khan is the first and the last prime minister who failed to unite the nation on the Kashmir cause.”

    Every government in the past — dictatorship, democratic, selected, or elected — was able to unite the people on the cause of Kashmir, he had said, adding: “I am surprised that despite all these problems, prime minister, on the floor of the house, said that PTI’s foreign policy has been the most successful.”

    Because it has. What evidence can Bilawal provide that says teh nation is not united on Kashmir? None. All soundbites for political gain nothing more.

    Reacting to the criticism Sindh has been facing for its response towards coronavirus, Bilawal had said that the province had the highest testing capacity per capita, free of cost treatment for patients, and free tests for the virus were being conducted in the province.

    “Our Intensive Care Units (ICU) and High Dependency Units (HDU) are more than any province. The [Centre] celebrated 100 days of battling coronavirus in the National Command and Control Centre, while Sindh inaugurated a 50-bedded hospital,” he had stated.


    A pathetic response to a existential crisis. More deaths, more cases, the province needs to be handed over to the fed and locked down until the virus is under control. Bilawal and the PPP should be investigated and sued for negiligence and a lack of planning.

    Party positions in Senate.
    Right now PTI doesn't have simple majority in Senate.

    In March 2021 we will have voting for 52 seats of Senate. And PTI will gain simple majority in Senate.

    Some bills need Two Third votes but there are plenty that can be passed with simple majority. PTI needs simple majority in Senate to implement policies and reforms.

    Last i remember, the opposition was humiliated when they secretly tried to change the Senate chairman and couldn't understand how they lost given that on paper they had the numbers to make it happen, and it was hilarious to see them complaining about the the secret anonymous balloting system they had introduced in the past themselves.

    This is precisely the treatment the likes of Nawaz Sharif, Asif Zardari, Bilawal Bhutto deserve
