Sindh Minister for Fisheries Zahid Ali Bhurgri has claimed that Pakistan Peoples Party’s government wants Pakistan to become a welfare state. He said that this democratic government is giving relief to poor people through Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP), Wasila-e-Haq Program and Benazir Bhutto Shaheed Youth Development Program. PPP leader Zahid Bhurgri also said that developed countries are appreciating Benazir Income Support Programme project. I ask Mr Bhurgri to please name the country that has appreciated BISP project? It looks that he lives in a world of make-believe surrounded by economic experts singing praises of the government and saying that its policies have strengthened Pakistan’s economy.
