Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairperson Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Sunday said that Prime Minister Imran Khan was causing problems for the people by creating continuous crises.

Criticising the incumbent government, Bilawal said that the stoves in the homes of people have gone cold but the ministers were engaged in the possible challenges of scenarios instead of resolving the gas crisis.

“Imran Khan is constantly causing problems for the people by creating crises. The only solution to get rid of the gas crisis and other public problems is to overthrow the PTI government,” he stated.

He maintained that the premier should apologise to citizens, as they were now only able to have one meal a day due to the ongoing gas crisis in the country.

“Had the government ordered LNG in advance, we would not have faced such issues,” Bilawal said, adding that if PPP’s Pak-Iran gas pipeline project was allowed to be completed, the country would not have faced this crisis.

Bilawal claimed that on one hand, the premier had increased the price of gas, and on the other, he had made the expensive alternate out of reach of the people.

The PPP leader was referring to the energy committee of the cabinet's recent approval of the recommendations related to the gas load management plan for the winter season. These include the suspension of gas supply to captive power, general industry and the CNG sector for two months.

“Due to the government's inability to deal with the gas crisis, industries are unable to meet their export orders,” Bilawal claimed.

The PPP chairperson made these remarks in his message on the birth anniversary of the late Shahnawaz Bhutto. He stated that history will never forget the struggle and sacrifice made by his martyred uncle for Pakistan's democracy.

“Shahnawaz Bhutto’s revolutionary thinking and determination will always be a beacon of light for us,” he added.
