LARKANA: Chairman, Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, asked PPP workers to get ready for another fight, saying that it has been decided to strat preparations for a political rally.
Addressing PPP workers and supporters gathered at Garhi Khuda Bux in connection with 9th death anniversary of Benazir Bhutto, Bilawal said that he would visit the whole country to mobilize masses against the government.
Coming down hard on Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif he said that he would not remain silent on government’s excesses against masses.
He announced that he would accomplish the mission of Bhutto. He said: “People are dying due to lack of treatment facilities but you want us to remain silent, you are exacerbating poverty and joblessness and yet want we remain silent, you want to make CPEC controversial, your polices destroyed industries and economy of the country, despite all these you want us to stay silent. We will not remain silent.” He announced that he would lead the masses against the government’s excesses.
“Millions of people die every year but the vision, the ideology and the courage of some people endures. Bibi said you can exile a man but not an idea. You can imprison a man but not an idea. You can kill a man but not an idea,” the PPP chairman said, adding the vision of Benazir Bhutto is even more valuable now than it was in the past.
“If something were to happen tomorrow, you will run away but the 20 crore people of Pakistan will stay here,” he added.
“Do you think it is that simple? So you think we are idiots? Your entire government is full of scandals,” the PPP chairman alleged, saying his party will protest if the Panama bill is not passed in the National Assembly.
“On the one hand, you want to present yourself in front of the accountability bureau but on the other hand, you continue to obstruct the Panama bill in the National Assembly,” Bilawal said.
“The courts have never done justice for us. Lets see if they do it for the people of Pakistan,” the PPP chairman said, adding that he wants democratic accountability.
“I will bring an end to the rule of the murderers,” he said, adding the party is gearing up for the long march.
Bilawal had said that while his party had been pressuring the government in a soft and democratic way to accept the demands, he warned that the PPP would take to the streets and launch a campaign for early elections if the demands were not met.
The PPP’s four demands required the federal government to revive the national security committee of parliament; accept the bill presented by the PPP on the Panama Papers controversy in the National Assembly; implement the resolutions passed at the recent multiparty conference on the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor and appoint a full-time foreign minister immediately
The PPP chairman slammed Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan for meeting with people from proscribed organisations. “The interior minister is threatening people instead of resigning. Whole world wants to declare us a terrorist state and people in your cabinet facilitate terrorists,” he said.
