Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has urged the parties in the opposition alliance PDM to fight the PTI unitedly to oust the government.
Bilawal was talking to media after he visited Jilani House in Khairpur and offered condolences to former Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah on the demise of his son Muzaffar Ali Shah and daughter Najma Shah.
He regretted that except his party who is opposing the PTI, the rest of the parties are engaged in in-fighting and that will ultimately be benefitting Imran Khan.
He said that his party will remain in contact with Shehbaz Sharif and Hamza Shehbaz for parliamentary politics.
Bilawal said that Shehbaz Sharif is the Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly while Hamza Shehbaz is the Leader of the Opposition in the Punjab Assembly. “We must remain in contact with both in parliamentary politics and focus on the incompetent PTI government.”
He said that the PPP want new and transparent elections in the country. The 2018 elections were rigged against the PPP and the demand for transparency has been our long-standing policy.
He said that the PPP has never signaled the end of a government’s term and it never will, although other parties may have said such things.
The PPP chairman said that the party does not believe in the politics of ‘deals’ and we denounce accusing each other of making deals. “Statements against each other will not be beneficial for the opposition, and I will not respond to them even though I am quite capable of doing that,” he added.
Bilawal said that he worked hard and went to every province to lay the foundation of PDM. Even today, he wants the opposition parties to work together as only then will Imran Khan not be able to complete his term. “I still believe the opposition should take on the government instead of fighting among themselves”, he maintained.
He wished PDM chief Maulana Fazal-ur-Rehman early recovery so that he could lead alliance to achieve its goal.
He said the PPP has decided to delay its Central Executive Committee (CEC) meeting scheduled for April 5 after President Arif Alvi convened a Senate session on that date. The CEC has to review the decision to resign from assemblies as planned by the PDM.
