PM accuses Bhuttos, Sharifs for country’s current situation

Prime Minister Imran Khan says countries are poor not because they lack resources but because their leadership is corrupt.

ISLAMABAD: (UrduPoint, Pakistan Point News-Dec 18th, 2021) Prime Minister Imran Khan strongly criticized the Bhuttos and the Sharifs, holding them responsible for the problems the country is facing today.
