PPP, GB govt criticise PM over omitting key issues in first address

Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Saeed Ghani criticised the inaugural address by Prime Minister Imran Khan which was televised on Sunday, a private media outlet reported.

Ghani said that Imran’s speech was the repetition of former president Pervez Musharraf’s the five-point agenda and nothing beyond that.

The premier remained silent on important issues such as terrorism and extremism, Ghani claimed, adding that the prime minister did not say anything against the killers who have claimed lives of 70,000 Pakistanis.

He also said that that PM Imran did not give any policy statement on China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), the seeds of which were planted by PPP Co-Chairperson Asif Ali Zardari.

Imran did not comment on the constitutional rights of Sindh and other smaller provinces, he remarked.

Ghani further remarked that PM Imran should have also given a policy statement on policies pertaining to NFC Award. “The PM did not say a single word regarding the reservations against the census.”

He alleged that all those who have forcefully occupied land in Karachi are the allies of the country’s premier.


Reacting to Prime Minister Imran Khan’s speech, the of the Gilgit-Baltistan government spokesperson said that the elected premier has no interest in GB.

“The premier spoke about the Diamer-Bhasha dam but did not mention the people residing in the area it is being built.”

Imran Khan doesn’t even know that GB is the economic hub of the country. The PM spoke about the water crisis but forget about glaciers.
