PML-N fielded terrorists against his party in Gilgit-Baltistan elections: Bilawal Bhutto
06 December, 2016
LAHORE: Pakistan People's Party's (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Monday said the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) had fielded terrorists against his party in Gilgit-Baltistan elections.
He blamed Nawaz Sharif and his party members for hiding their extremism behind clean-shaven faces.
He also said Nawaz had a "beard in his big belly" and that why he fielded extremist candidates against the PPP in Gilgit Baltistan (GB) elections.
The PPP chairman was addressing the party workers from GB in connection with the party's 49th Foundation Day celebrations held at the Bilawal House on Monday.
"PML-N and its interior minister are applying and exploiting NAP for political targets and victimisation instead of targeting terrorists. Chaudhry Nisar shed crocodile's tears on the killing of [TTP chief] Hakeemullah Mehsud and started abusing NAP against Dr Asim and Ayyan Ali," he stated.
Bilawal said that it was only his family, the PPP, police and the army who were fighting the terrorists and embracing martyrdom while all others are doing politics over NAP and terrorism policy.
"We have Bhutto power and they have Zia power. We had defeated Zia. We defeated Musharraf. PPP has defeated Nawaz Sharif several times and will defeat him again in 2018 general elections," he added.
The PPP chairman said the CPEC was an idea of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and Shaheed Benazir Bhutto while former president Asif Zardari transformed it into a vision by handing over Gwadar Port to China.
Speaking on the occasion, former GB governor Qamar Zaman Kaira said elections in AJK and GB were stolen by the PML-N through massive rigging. He said elections in all the four provinces, AJK and GB should be held simultaneously.
Earlier, PPP GB President Amjad Hussain adorned Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari with traditional Gilgit cap and chogha (cloak).
