“Our manifesto is bibi ka wada nibhana hai, Pakistan bachana hai [honouring Benazir Bhutto’s promise to safe Pakistan],” he asserted.

Bilawal Bhutto explained that his party will continue struggle to establish the South Punjab province, for which many political forces are unveiling policies.

‘Today, Pakistan is under debt and is being isolated on the diplomatic front. It is facing an isolation and is not listened to in the international fora despite rendering sacrifices in men and material,’ shared Bilwal and highlighted that once the World Super Power was made to apologize.

“We will include Fata in the national mainstream as soon as possible.” he declared.

The ‘junior Bhutto’ explained that his party focused on resolving issues relating to education, health and other basic necessities.

‘We will also focus on resolving two major issues perturbing the youth; unemployment and opportunities,’ said the chairman.

Sharing that measures will have to be taken to give a boost to industrial progress and development, Bilawal said that his party will opt zero tax policy for the textile sector after assuming power.

“We will introduce measures to increase synergy between national institutions,” Bilawal said and added that the rulers need to ensure there’s no exploitation of the weak and the marginalised.

He also shared his opinion regarding the looming water crisis and said not working to resolve the water scarcity issue would be an injustice with future generations.

“We will not compromise on national integrity,” Bilawal remarked.
