MULTAN: Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari on Wednesday said that the party’s Central Executive Committee (CEC) has decided that it would start its long march on February 27 from Karachi as it has declared war on the “selected government”.
Bilawal told a party meeting in Multan that the BJP exposed the PTI-led government on its first day in power and has been fighting it ever since.
“Other parties did not participate in the by-elections, however, the PPP stood its ground and fought the PTI not to leave constituencies vacant,” he said, adding that the party also participated in the Senate election.
The PPP chairman said the march would be a success because “Imran has lost the first round of local body elections”.
Bilawal took a swipe at the prime minister and said that “Imran Niazi is running away after disqualifying his candidate (Faisal Vawda) to contest in the next elections.”
“The PM should dissolve the National Assembly before the march if he has the courage to do so,” he added.
“Some people did not stand with us on the no-confidence motion, however, they are now supporting us,” said Bilawal, adding that the party will campaign for the no-confidence motion to oust the PTI-led government.
Calling the State Bank of Pakistan (Amendment) Bill, 2021, an “anti-national agreement”, he said that it is a deal between the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and PTI.
“The Transparency International has called the country more corrupt than ever,” Bilawal said, adding that “those who have accused the PPP of corruption haven’t proved it and they should be convicted.”
