Imran should have focused only on Kashmir in UNGA speech, Bilawal says


Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari on Wednesday contradicted his earlier statement of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s being good at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA), saying that it should only have been about Kashmir.

Addressing a press conference in Mirpur on Wednesday after meeting the victims of the earthquake, he said that the premier’s speech at the UNGA was good; however, it should have been dedicated to the ongoing Kashmir issue and its nitty gritties.“The prime minister should have demanded democratic rights and right to self-determination for people of Occupied Kashmir,” he said.

He said that becoming an ambassador of Kashmir doesn’t mean a single tweet or just a speech and asked how many countries the premier visited to discuss the Kashmir issue during the last 50 days.

Further, the PPP chairman said that the compensation being given to the people affected by the doctors’ strikes was not enough and demanded the federal government to increase the amount of money, doctors and paramedical staff are required in the hospitals.

Bilawal went on to say that people are facing problems which is why the government will have to go, adding that our stance on “Azadi March” is clear. “The PPP has been against the politics of sit-ins,” he added.
