The Youth Conference was chaired by Ms. Ghinwa Bhutto, Chairman of Pakistan Peoples Party (Shaheed Bhutto), and facilitated by Mr. Omar Sial, Deputy Secretary General of the party.
During the discussion, some interesting comments from the participants reflected their involvement in state affairs and highlighted their concerns about the events happening across the region.
Humna Mehwish, one of the most vocal participants in the discussion, heavily criticized the government and termed the reaction from the armed forces and the government insufficient. She said that Pakistan Peoples Party was taking revenge from the people of Pakistan through democracy, as democracy is the best revenge!
Ahsan Umar, said that it were own mistakes that are leading to undesirable consequences today. He termed Pakistan’s foreign policy as a confused policy and said that the government did not have a world view of their own, it was importing that too from the US.
Saad, another student in the conference, said that the politicians were using the people for their own motives and were safeguarding the interests of foreign powers.
Most of the students agreed on the fact that relationship with United States should be reviewed and Pakistan should focus more on its internal economic development than fighting war for other countries.
