Religious, ethnic biases imposed on educated people of Karachi: Bilawal

Pakistan Press Club KARACHI: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that religious and ethnic prejudices were imposed on the educated people of Karachi as part of a conspiracy; street crimes, money extortion and terrorism were made the marks of identification for Karachi.

He said the national wealth was limited to some families only and incompetent politicians had created problems for the country. The PPP chairperson expressed these views in an interview on Sunday.

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said: “Karachi is my city and we will change this city together. Karachi used to be called the city of lights. The bad luck of this city’s past three decades is in front of us. We are not going to do rural or urban politics.

I promise that I will follow in the footsteps of my mother and my maternal grandfather. I was also born in this city and I assure everyone that we will bring back the lost charm and status of Karachi. We will end this era of destruction and absolute mess.”

Later, in a video message, the PPP chairperson invited all the PPP members and general public to the Parade Ground in Islamabad on Dec 5, 2017. He said, “I will wait for everyone.”

Bilawal also said that the national wealth of Pakistan was limited to some families only and the politicians had mortgaged the national assets for taking loans. He said: “Every year, 30,000 people in Pakistan are getting unemployed and incompetent politicians are further creating problems for the country.”

In his message on the eve of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities being observed by the United Nations the world over on Sunday, the PPP chairperson endorsed the UN Theme for 2017: “Transformation towards sustainable and resilient society for all.”

Bilawal further said that disabled persons should be given adequate opportunities and facilities to grow and utilise their full potential for the overall good of the society and a better life for themselves.

He lauded the Sindh government’s five per cent increase in job quota for disabled candidates. The PPP chairman also pledged that the PPP would increase employment and recruitment quota for persons with disabilities in departments of federal and other three provincial governments to five per cent after coming into power in the 2018 general elections.
