ISLAMABAD: Bilawal Bhutto Zardari Chairman PPP-P, following Party’s core committee meeting, addressed a Presser today.
He predicted that elections would be held next year and a new prime minister would be elected. He pointed out that PPP wanted elections and did not want to go from one ‘selected’ to another: “I can see with certainty that by next year Imran Khan will not be the prime minister.”
Commenting on the Azadi March Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said PPP-P had fulfilled all it had promised but Fazl did not inform Rahbar Committee in detail about Plan B and Plan C or talks with Chaudhry Brothers.
Bilawal Bhutto while informing that his father had not applied for bail told that Asif Zardari was not being allowed to meet his personal physician since the last six months.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari announced that PPP would present its agenda on its founding day: “On our founding day, we will hold a jalsa in Azad Kashmir”. Maintaining that occupied Kashmir had been transformed into a huge jail, Bilawal said that the PPP would not stop raising its voice for the people of Kashmir.
He maintained that incumbent government did not happen to harbor any economic policy: “Ever since this government has taken control of the country, the economic situation has taken a turn for the worse. The common man has to pay the price in the form of increased taxes”.

Bilawal says it is time to tell the Selectors that their Selected failed
MUZAFFARGARH: Addressing a public gathering at Shaheed Benazir Sports Ground here today, Chairman PPP-P Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has stated that Selected’s authoritarian frame of mind was endangering the Constitution, Democracy and Center.
Maintaining that incumbent government was pushing the country towards political instability, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari claimed that the entire Opposition was united to send the Selected prime minister home. Chairman PPP-P stated that if the Party workers and the nation wanted politics of long march and dharna then they were ready to do that. Bilawal Bhutto Zardari announced that his Party would expose the fake mandate of the selected government by going all over Pakistan.
Claiming that PPP-P had picked-up the devastated Pakistan back in 2008 and transformed that into a country that was developing, he noted that in 2019 the puppet and incompetent government had destroyed it again. He held that the one year story of Puppet Khan could be summed-up as rising cost and misery for the poor. Bilawal Bhutto Zardari reminded that even when the world was experiencing economic crisis PPP did not lay the burden of inflation on poor. But in the very first year of the Selected historic hike in prices, employment and poverty was unleashed on the suffering masses.
He said that PPP-P had warned before the last General Elections that an attempt was being made to shape a puppet government. PPP-P was not allowed to run its election campaign properly and equal opportunities were not provided for the election. Creating obstacle in PPP’s way the puppet government was facilitated. PPP-P Chairman maintained that Asif Ali Zardari, who despite being in the clear, had spent eleven years behind bars, was still prepared to face atrocities but would not compromise on principles.
He said no matter if the leadership was incarcerated, cases were made against them, conspiracies were hatched, no matter how much force was applied, PPP’s workers and leadership could not be pressurized because PPP never comprised on principles. PPP would, he said, soon take not only Muzaffargarh and South Punjab but also the whole of Pakistan. Maintaining that PPP-P had faced the tyrants and made sacrifices for the sake of democracy, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari asked ‘what the puppet government had done?’ He held that the government was presented to the Selected on a plate.
Bilawal Bhutto said it was time to tell the Selectors of the Selected government that their Selected failed and people had rejected them. He asked why the doctors were on strike in the New Pakistan? Why the farmers were committing suicides? Why the youth were disappointed? Why the laborers were going to sleep empty sans food? He pointed out that the subsidiary on the wheat was the same that PPP-P had fixed ten years ago.
