KARACHI: Chairman PPPP Bilawal Bhutto Zardari while addressing a huge public gathering at Bagh-e-Jinnah ground here today has said that PTI and MQM were two sides of the same coin.
Referring to the recent clash between PTI and PPP workers at Hakeem Saeed Ground Bilawal Bhutto Zardari claimed that PTI activists opened fire at PPP workers: “We chose Hakeem Saeed ground to pay tribute to our martyrs. On May 12, 2007, Musharraf’s cronies martyred our workers. The people of Karachi will never accept a new MQM-P under the name of PTI. This is our city and we can do our gathering anywhere in the metropolis.”
Drawing a parallel between Jallianwala Bagh massacre and 12th May Karachi carnage Bilawal Bhutto Zardari accused present Mayor of Karachi Wasim Akhtar of being the man behind the incident: “The man who is now Mayor Karachi was Home Minister at that time, he is the one responsible behind the carnage on that day…PPP workers were attacked in Karachi on May 12. Awami National Party activists, lawyers of the city were killed. The people of Karachi were praying for their life…from a political party’s militant wing.”
Conspicuous among others there are Sherry Rehman, CM Sindh Murad Ali Shah, Taj Haider and Qaim Ali Shah on the stage.
