NEWS DESK: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto Zardari posted on Thursday a hard-hitting message regarding the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI)-led government in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (KP) on Twitter.

Tagging PTI chief Imran Khan in his tweet, Bilawal called out PTI over reports that the government in KP is releasing an additional huge sum of Rs277 million for Maulana Samiul Haq’s madrassa, Darul Uloom Haqqania. Bilawal was openly critical, saying that “PTI’s Naya Pakistan will be built on the blood of terrorism victims. Shame!”.

For the year 2016-17, the KP government had allocated Rs300mn for the seminary, which also brought the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) under fire from the civil society and opposition parties.

Bilawal wrote: “Reports that @ImranKhanPTI PTI government is releasing additional Rs. 27 Crores for Madrassa Haqania owned by Maulana Sami ul haq. The total funds released since 2016 now stand at 57 crores! PTIs Naya Pakistan will be built on the blood of terrorism victims. Shame!”
