She has said that today we have joined the protest on the instructions of the PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.
She has blasted on government by saying that the PMLN government has failed on all fronts and it is wasting money only on Metros and Roads and it has been completely ignored health and education sectors. She has criticised the PML-N government for ignoring key sectors like health and education for construction Roads, Orange Train and Metro Bus just because of Kickbacks and using Itffaq Foundaries’ Steel.
