PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has called upon the government to review the $6 billion loan deal it struck with IMF.

Talking to newsmen outside Parliament House on Wednesday, Bilawal said the deal between the PTI-led government and the International Monetary Fund should be renegotiated.

The PPP chairman said “Throw the IMF deal in the bin and renegotiate it. We need a deal that is beneficial to Pakistan and its people.”

The PTI government knows that it is ‘na laiq’ (incompetent) and ‘na-ehal’ (incapable), he remarked. “You are nalaiq, na-ehal when it comes to politics, you are nalaiq, naehal to run the government, you are nalaiq, naehal when it comes to taking care of the country’s economy.”

Bilawal to appear before NAB

Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah on Wednesday said that PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari would appear before the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) Rawalpindi on Thursday.

It is pertinent to mention here that the NAB Rawalpindi on Monday summoned Bilawal on February 13 in a Joint Venture (JV) Opal 255 corruption case. Bilawal is accused of taking out an amount of Rs1.22 billion from a fake bank account to utilize it for his personal company.

Speaking in Karachi, the chief minister said that the leaders of the opposition parties and former president Asif Ali Zardari were put behind bars without any accusations being levelled against them. “Our leaders including PPP leader Dr Faryal Talpur obtained bail from the courts on merit,” he said.

About IGP Sindh replacement matter, Shah said that they conveyed five names to the federal government on their request. “We are hopeful that the IGP is appointed from among the forwarded names,” he said.

Lashing out at the federal authorities for deductions of eight billion rupees made from the provincial account over non-registration of vehicles, the chief minister said that these 1.4 million vehicles remain unregistered since the establishment of Pakistan.
