Pakistan - Farmers prospered during PPP govt but Nawaz snatched everything

Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto has condemned the crackdown on peasants and farmers in Islamabad and termed it as a dictatorial action by Nawaz Sharif government.
Announcing his support for the protest and demands of farmers, the PPP chairman said peasantry has been destroyed economically by Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) government, which has proved the worst enemy of agriculture, which is continuously registering minus growth during current government.
He said that shelling and baton-charge on innocent farmers are part of the Sharif brothers’ anti-farmers policy as they have been ignoring and even facilitating protests by banned organisations in the capital city. “The brutal torture against the farmers in Islamabad has again exposed Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar as a remnant of dictatorships,” he added.
Bilawal Bhutto said that farmers and growers always prospered during the PPP governments but Nawaz snatched smiles on their faces. Farmers demanding in Islamabad have every right to exercise their democratic right to protest against injustices, he added.
The PPP chairman said that his party would restore all the rights of farmers after coming into power and will continue to promote and stabilise agriculture sector.
