PPP holds federal govt responsible for Karachi deaths


KARACHI: The Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) on Saturday held the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) led federal government responsible for over 1,200 deaths in Karachi due to a severe heat wave in Karachi.


The federal government is also responsible as well as K-Electric for hundreds of loves lost due to severe heat in Karachi, said PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari.

In a statement, the party chairman said that the federal government had promised that it would end loadshedding in six months but had failed to do so after over two years now.

All this proves the government’s incompetence, bad governance and corruption, he said.

The N-League created a hue and cry about the Nandipur power project and circular debt when it was in opposition, he said.

“Where does the federal government stand today on the issues of Nandipur and circular debt?” asked Bilawal.

The PPP chairman commended citizens and political parties for raising their voicing against loadshedding.
