Imran ‘has no capability’ to complete his term: Bilawal – Pakistan

KARACHI: The president of the Party of Peoples of Pakistan (PPP), Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari, said Sunday that Prime Minister Imran Khan "has no capacity" to complete his term, since all the country's political forces and people who belong to all spheres of life had no choice but to go to agitation against "this puppet government."

The PPP leader was talking to the media while visiting the Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Center (JPMC), where the administration mainly informed him about the performance of the CyberKnife Robotic Radiosurgery System.

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

He said the federal government was not competent to lead the country in the right direction, which is why everyone throughout Pakistan was raising his voice against his "anti-people" policies.

However, at the same time, Bhutto-Zardari said his party would no doubt protest against the "selected" government, however, "we will not be part of any act to derail democracy; or allow anyone to do the same."

The PPP leader said he did not see the government last long to create difficult self-inflicted conditions.

"Everyone is fed up with this puppet government," Bhutto-Zardari said.

“All political parties and people who belong to all spheres of life, including merchants, teachers, doctors and workers, are not happy with government policies. All this is not up to par and I am not sure that 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 the problem of people.

"Instead of using the NAB (National Accountability Bureau) and the Rangers to organize minor elections, the prime minister should forge unity among people solving their problems," he said.

While he said his party would not allow democracy to be derailed in Pakistan, he asked the government to solve the problems in a civilized way, since running a country was very different from playing cricket.

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

However, Bhutto-Zardari gave an advice to the political parties that belonged to the opposition to act in moderation while protesting against the Tehreek-i-Insaf Pakistan government to ensure that that did not allow the intervention of anti-democratic forces.

He warned that the PPP would be in its historical mode against the dictatorial government if another martial law were imposed on the country.

Regarding the Sindh's government's approach to improving the health care system, he said the JPMC was the best public sector hospital in the country, which was "much better" than Lady Reading Hospital, Peshawar.

"JPMC is a hospital that offers free facilities like CyberKnife, which is popularly called the magic knife or magic wand."
