Bilawal suggests FM attend UN summit, not interim PM.

PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari criticized Prime Minister Anwaarul Haq Kakar’s upcoming participation in the UN session. Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari suggested that the foreign minister should represent Pakistan at the General Assembly rather than the prime minister, given that the interim government has a limited mandate.

During a press conference at Baloch House, the former foreign minister called on the caretaker government to focus on managing the country’s basic affairs and ensuring fair and free elections with equal opportunities for all stakeholders.

Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari urged the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to promptly announce the schedule for general elections to establish an elected government capable of addressing these challenges. He also visited Baloch House to offer condolences for the murder of the younger brother of PPP central Punjab’s deputy secretary, Meer Asif Khan Baloch.

In response to questions, Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari stated that the PPP would decide on potential electoral alliances once the election schedule was released. He emphasized that the ECP should announce the poll schedule without delay, as the country faces various challenges, including law and order, terrorism, and political crises.

Regarding the new Chief Justice, Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari praised Chief Justice Qazi Faez Isa for sending a strong message by having his spouse by his side during his oath-taking ceremony. He urged CJP Isa to restore the judiciary’s credibility.

Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari also advocated for providing subsidies to the poor rather than the elite or fertilizer factories. He mentioned that the PPP had devised a project to provide housing for two million people in Sindh and would initiate a Youth Cards scheme similar to the Benazir Income Support Programme.

He commended the enthusiastic support for the party’s long march in Okara, highlighting the significance of the area to the PPP, as it was often referred to as “mini-Larkana” in honor of Benazir Bhutto.
