Bilawal seeks PTI voters’ support to defeat Nawaz
GUJARAT: (Suno News) Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Thursday urged Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI)’s supporters to vote for his party on February 8 so as to stop PML-N from coming to power.
Addressing a political gathering in Gujarat, Bilawal said, “Our opponents thought we lack vote bank in Punjab. If a political party is serious about elections, it is Bhutto’s PPP. We have held rallies in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. We have visited Sindh and Balochistan. But our opponents do not leave their stronghold.”
The PPP chairman said that there was a reason why the lion was not going out for hunting, and the reason is the lion wanted someone else should hunt for him. “They (PML-N leaders) say that work on preparation of manifesto is going on, but they are not telling the people what they will do. However, we have made public an economic agreement to end inflation and unemployment in the country,” he said.
The aspirant of prime minister’s slot said that the public income of Pakistan was not only increased but also doubled. The PPP manifesto includes 300 units of electricity free of cost; 30 lakh houses will be built and distributed free; and ownership rights would be given to the slum dwellers, he detailed.
“My mother is no more in this world but I want to serve women like my mother. After coming to power, we will offer insurance plan for farmers’ crops. Direct payment for their crops will be transferred to them directly,” he said.
Earlier, the PPP Chairman had stated that he would prefer to form a Pakistan People’s Party led government with independent politicians.
“I would prefer to form a Pakistan People’s Party led government with independent politicians. You know, lots of independent politicians, probably the highest in our history are taking part in the coming elections. Aside from that, I think unfortunately both the Muslim League and that the Tehreek-e-insaaf have proved that they are two sides of the same coin. The faces change, but the policies stay the same,” Bilawal said in an interview with Reuters in Larkana.
The prime minister contender in upcoming general elections said, “We are facing a perfect storm of crises. The economic crisis that we’re facing is one of the worst in our history, the security challenges that we are facing risk pushing Pakistan back to the far more difficult, far more difficult time when we used to have terrorist attacks every other day across the country.” He further stated, “As far as the geopolitical challenges in this part of the world is concerned, they, you know, that poses a whole other set of challenges. And within that context, I don’t think we have time to waste on politics as usual.”
