KARACHI: Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari, while taking a jibe at the Prime Minister Imran Khan for criticizing the Sindh government, has said that the premier should resign and go home if he got nothing else to do.

“From a federal minister to Prime Minister’s special aide, everyone is tasked to give statements against Sindh government. May I ask what has our beloved federal government done so far to stop Coronavirus spread?” PPP Chief said while addressing a media briefing here today.

“If the Centre doesn’t want to support us, it should refrain from criticism. At least Sindh’s Chief Minister [Syed Murad Ali Shah] knows how serious this pandemic is. Punjab CM on the other hand asks ‘how does this Corona [virus] bite’. Yet, you are supporting him despite growing cases in his province.”

“Mr. Prime Minister is not happy with us because there is PPP government in Sindh whereas PTI is ruling in all other provinces. He is frustrated because Sindh was the first province to take all the precautionary measures in order to fight COVID-19.”

“Why did you follow everything that we did? We closed our schools, you did it after us. We imposed lockdown, you did it after many days. We extended the lockdown and you even followed that thing. I must say Sindh government’s performance is amazing that’s why the federal government is following our decision,” Bilawal said.

PPP Chairman seemed unhappy with the acts of PM Khan and it seemed that he called the press briefing to highlight premier’s mistakes and criticism.

“Someone should tell our PM that he is not on the container anymore nor is he in opposition. Why is he criticising provincial government? I thought he was head of the state, but his acts say something else. It seems Mr. Imran Khan considers himself as the Prime Minister of Islamabad only,” he said.
