LARKANA: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Wednesday said Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry’s narrative of making people unemployed was Prime Minister Imran Khan’s real policy.
“Under conspiracy, huge number of people are being fired from various departments. Rather than improving the economic conditions, the government has started shutting down organisations,” Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said while talking to media in Ratodero, Larkana.
He said if you see the PTI’s one year performance, people have been made unemployed in a large number from sectors including the media, agriculture and manufacturing corporations.
People could play their role for economy, when they would have jobs, he maintained. He rued that the government had announced to shut down 400 departments. He said the government wanted people of so many departments to become jobless which would stop the economic activity which is generated through the money they earn and spend.
It may be noted that in a statement a day ago, Fawad Chaudhry had asked people no not to look towards the government for jobs. He said the private sector was responsible for creating jobs and not the government.
Bilawal has arrived in Larkana to monitor the measures taken against HIV. He said HIV had become a serious issue which needed to be addressed.
“It was the government’s job to provide health facilities and the Sindh government was making every effort to do so,” he said.

To a query, Bilawal said the PPP was supporting Maulana Fazl for it thought that the government would have to go home now. He said the JUI-F and PML-N had made a conglomerate with the PPP to support each other in by-elections.
To another query, he said the PML-N was supporting them in Larkana by-polls, while Maulana’s role in Larkana could be best described by Maulana himself. “We will contest against the PTI and GDA in the district.
“PPP will win, If polls are not rigged in Larkana,” he said.
