Bilawal, Shehbaz discuss overall political situation of country | The Express Tribune


ISLAMABAD:

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Saturday discussed the overall political situation of the country.

During a telephonic conversation, the two leaders also discussed the appointment of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) members.

The PDM, which had lost its political steam after the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and the Awami National Party (ANP) parted ways with it earlier this year, have decided to organise another round of countrywide rallies to topple the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government.

Earlier in August, PDM announced marching towards Islamabad “with a sea of people” to topple the ruling PTI.

PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif Shehbaz accused Prime Minister Imran Khan of making false promises to the people of Sindh and Karachi.

“In 2019, [PM] Imran [Khan] Niazi announced Rs162 billion for Sindh and Karachi and then in 2020 he announced a developmental package worth Rs1,100 billion for the province.”

Shehbaz had said except for a ‘few pennies’, PM Imran did not fulfil his promise of providing funds to the province.

He credited his elder brother and former premier Nawaz Sharif for stabilising the country’s economy and restoring law and order in the port city.
