GILGIT: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that people of GB want their representation in the National Assembly and the Senate.
Addressing a rally in Ghizer district of Gilgit-Baltistan, Bilawal said that if our party is a party of martyrs, Ghizer is the land of martyrs, whose people sacrificed their lives for the sake of the country.
Criticizing the federal government, Bilawal Zardari said that people can see what has been done to Pakistan, inflation and unemployment are rampant and people from every section of society are protesting.
He said that we give relief to the people, they bring suffering. PPP raised salaries by 150%, launched the Benazir Income Support Program, increased pensions by 100% and increased the salaries of troops on the borders by 175%.
Regarding Gilgit becoming a province, the PPP chairman said that even those who take instructions from elsewhere have accepted his demand of a Gilgit province. He asked why the demand of a separate province is not part of their election manifesto, unlike PPP. PPP will give Gilgit the status of a province, he claimed.
It should be noted that Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has been running a full-fledged election campaign in different districts of Gilgit-Baltistan for the last several days, addressing the public and party workers in rallies across important cities.
