KARACHI: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairperson Imran Khan has criticised Pakistan Peoples Party Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari, alleging the latter did not know how a hardworking person in the country earn bread and butter.
While speaking to the media during his visit to Karachi Sunday, Imran said Bilawal has made tall claims in multiple statements but was unaware of the actual issues faced by the people.
About the issues pertaining to the citizens, Imran mentioned those pertaining to water saying that supplied for irrigation had sewage water mixed in it.
The PTI chairperson also said that the chief justice of Pakistan would not have had to give a week’s time for Karachi to be cleaned had there any work been done in the city by PPP, the party which is in power in Sindh.
“In the 10 years of their government, what work have you [the PPP government] done for Karachi and interior Sindh,” asked Imran.
The PTI chief was referring to the statement by Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar, who expressed anger over the heaps of garbage dotting Karachi.
During a hearing of the Supreme Court’s Karachi registry, the CJP said Karachi’s cleanliness situation has deteriorated with time. “I don’t know how but clean the city. I don’t want to see trash on streets of Karachi anymore,” he observed.
Heaps of garbage have clogged drains while trash piles are seen everywhere, he remarked, questioning whose job it was to clean the city. He reasoned that it is the job of Karachi Mayor Waseem Akhtar.
