“Where due to your sacrifices and lockdown Pakistan was ahead, it will now fall behind,” the PPP chairman stated.
He stated Pakistan has made no preparations for import of the vaccine, whereas India, Bangladesh and Western nations are shifting in a short time to safe the vaccine.
“Sindh government was expecting to roll out the vaccine in January. We were told to be prepared by January so the vaccination can begin,” Bilawal stated.
He stated the Sindh authorities had ready and readied “all mechanisms”, particularly to make sure vaccination for frontline employees who’re “most vulnerable and the most important” however the vaccine “never came”.
“It seems we will have to wait for a long time.”
Pakistan hasn’t positioned any orders for coronavirus vaccine but: report
Bilawal stated this “unfair” strategy by the federal government will result in the non-public sector being given a desire. “The private sector will have full freedom. The private sector will be the first to arrange a vaccine and whoever has money will get vaccinated,” he stated.
He stated as a substitute what ought to have occurred was that the federal government ought to have first procured it for the frontline employees, “after which obviously the private sector can begin to as well”.
“But this will not happen now.”
‘Govt ought to step down’
Bilawal stated that whether or not its Pakistan’s financial system or its well being sector, “our government has failed and this is why the people are suffering”.
“This is why we demand that they step down,” stated the PPP chairman.

“Transparency International says Pakistan’s most corrupt government is the PTI government,” he stated.

International funding case
“There are very serious allegations that the PTI is a foreign-funded party. Their own member has raised allegations. But unfortunately, whether it is the court or the election commission, the truth has not been put forth before the people.
“This is the reason the Pakistan Democratic Motion will protest on January 19 exterior the Election Fee of Pakistan and can demand that the case be taken to its conclusion and all of the information of the case be made public,” Bilawal said.
He said the people must be told which people from which countries “gave a lot cash to PTI”.
“If a citizen from India or from Israel funds a Pakistan occasion there have to be a purpose behind it.”
Bilawal said it must be probed “why this cash was given to PTI and since PTI got here into energy did they facilitate these folks in any approach or not”.
He said he believes “if such a senior member has offered proof of such a critical allegation”, the truth of these allegations should have been put before the public by now.
The PPP chairman said he hopes after the protest, “we can’t be upset like up to now”.
He said the party, as well as he, in a personal capacity will fully participate in highlighting the issue through press conferences and other means.
