Sacking of Finance Minister is victory of PDM: Bilawal Bhutto

ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) – Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that Dr Abdul hafeez Shaikh being sacked as the Finance Minister is a victory for the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM).

The PPP leader, in a tweet on Monday, termed the Finance Minister’s ouster as a victory of PDM as the government needed Hafeez Shaikh to be elected as a senator to continue on his post. His senate defeat at the hands of Yousaf Raza Gillani made that impossible, he added.

Bilawal said that now, the government admits that inflation is skyrocketing because of its failed policies.

“Parliamentary opposition proven most effective vs this regime”, he said.

Earlier, Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Shibli Faraz confirmed that Hammad Azhar would replace Dr Abdul Hafeez Shaikh as the country’s Finance Minister.
