PPP will go to war with anyone willing to rollback 18th amendment: Bilawal

Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto said on Tuesday that if need be he would take to the streets but under no circumstances allow anyone to rollback or change the 18th amendment.

The 18th amendment of the Constitution was passed in 2010, which devolved powers to the provinces, and removed the clause 58 2 (B), which gave president authority to dissolve Parliament unilaterally.

The PPP chief was speaking to the media at Khairpur’s Gambat Institute of Medical Sciences.

Bilawal said whenever a new government came into power they cut off the gas and electricity supply in Sindh, adding that the provincial government was trying its best to alleviate the problems faced by the public.

“Whenever someone comes to the GIMS for free medical treatment it is heartening for me,” he said.

The PPP chairman challenged the country’s premier to set up a hospital, which is “at par with GIMS” in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa.

    On the issue of 18the amendment, Bilawal is shadowboxing; apparently, there is no opponent. The GIM is brand new; it remains to be seen how good the hospital facilities are. Hope, the medical centre is as good as Mr. Zardari would like us to believe though the final proof would be when Bilawal Zardari, his family member and other PPP party leaders would seek medical treatment in GIM and not in a foreign country.Recommend
