ISLAMABAD: PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said on Wednesday that the PTI government has bowed before the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

Speaking to media, Bilawal said that the government was not taking a stand on serious issues. He pointed out that the poor were being crushed under the weight of price hikes and houses were being demolished under the anti-encroachment operation.

Bilawal said that it was obvious the government had bowed before the IMF and were accepting its conditions.

“The man who was taking a salary from the IMF till last week is now our new State Bank governor,” he said.

Bilawal said that in a short span of time, the State Bank governor, finance minister and FBR chairman had all been changed.

“Are these decisions coming from somewhere else?” he asked.

Bilawal said that labour unions across the country were being weakened. He called the federal government incompetent and said that due to it, the provinces were getting weaker by the day.

“When there will be political instability economy cannot take off,” the PPP chairman said. “In this time of financial crisis, the government has left poor on their own.”
