Economic Survey missed poverty, unemployment despite their historic increase: Bilawal Bhutto

KARACHI: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari rejected the Economic Survey 2021, stating it did not depict the country’s actual conditions.

In a statement on Friday, Bilawal criticized the government for omitting the statistics regarding poverty and unemployment from the economic survey – especially since there has been a historic rise in both.

“Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has seen a historic rise in poverty. Since the incompetent government wants to hide these numbers from the public, they have removed the statistics regarding poverty from the economic survey.”

Condemning the move, the PPP chairman stated that hiding poverty and unemployment stats and making excuses for inflation is not the solution. “A record rise in the unemployment rate in Pakistan’s history is the real face of Imran Khan’s change,” he declared.

Bilawal Bhutto warned the selected PM to take note of the plight of the underprivileged who are suffering due to PTI’s negligence.

“If the economic survey does not accurately identify the problems of the people, how will these issues be solved?. Pretending something does not exist will not free the nation of the predicament,” he added.

He said that the prime minister is not bearing the burden of the PTIMF budget. “It is the people who are paying a high price for Imran Khan’s ineptitude by being exposed to a devastating rate of inflation, unemployment, and poverty,” he concluded.
