During a public address in Dera Ismail Khan ahead of the General Elections 2024, Bilawal announced plans to provide direct aid to farmers through the Kisan Card. He also pledged to eliminate the Rs15 billion subsidy given to the ‘elites’ annually if his party comes to power with the support of the people of Pakistan.
Bilawal emphasized that the funds currently allocated to the elites would instead be used for the welfare of the public, and his party would introduce the ‘Kisan Card’ in place of subsidizing the wealthy.
He urged the people to support PPP on February 8, stating that their vote would determine the direction of the next five years. Bilawal also highlighted the PPP’s initiatives in Sindh, such as free medical facilities, and urged the residents of Dera Ismail Khan to vote for his party to implement similar programs in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
Additionally, he mentioned the success of the ‘revolutionary’ Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP) in providing financial assistance to deserving women.
Prior to this, on January 29, Bilawal addressed students at the Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto Institute of Science and Technology (SZABIST) Islamabad campus, reiterating the need to “bury the old politics” and usher in a new era with PPP’s manifesto “Chuno Nai Soch Ko (Choose new thinking).”
