Lion’s sacrifice necessary to save democracy: Bilawal

DHERKI: Chairman, Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Friday said that ‘lion’s‘ sacrifice was necessary for saving democracy, adding that Panama leaks was the biggest scandal of the world.

Addressing a public meeting in Dherki, Bilawal said that the government must accept PPP’s four demands otherwise it will suffer great loss.

Bilawal said that in 2014 ‘Lion’ was saved for the sake of democracy, but this time around lion’s sacrifice was necessary to save the very democracy.

The PPP chairman said that National Action Plan (NAP) was being torn apart while the representatives of banned outfits were being served tea at the office of Interior Minister.

Bilawal said that Nawaz Sharif’s economic policies had destroyed the country and the country was being pushed towards anarchy.

He said Pakistan was being run by an incompetent prime minister for the last three years, claiming the government will not be able to complete its tenure if a judicial commission on Panamagate is not formed.

“The worst policies of the premier has divided the people of this country as he not used to considering anything against his own ego,” Bilawal said.

Lashing out at the federal government for continued incidents of terrorism, Bilawal said the national security committee should be reconstituted to check terror incidents. The PPP chairman said his party was striving to eliminate terrorism and propagate the message of peace.

“The PM must come forward and present himself for accountability,” Bilawal said, adding that Aitzaz Ahsan’s bill on Panama Papers needs to be passed for the commission to function.

Bilawal told Imran Khan his ‘minus-one’ formula can also raise a similar call for his own self, referring to PTI chairman’s statement about a PPP without Asif Ali Zardari.

“Let me tell you, the PTI would be better under Sheikh Rashid,” he added.

He advised the government to review the situation and constant Indian firing on the Line of Control (LoC) and Working Boundary, saying he was against [Narendra] Modi’s conspiracies. “Prime Minister, you are a ruler not a king and this is a democracy not a monarchy.” PPP chairman remarked.
