PPP will not forge any electoral alliance: Bilawal Bhutto
29 December, 2017
SUKKUR: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Thursday said his party will not forge any electoral alliance in the next general elections and will contest the polls on its own.
Bilawal rejected the idea of forging alliance with any political party, saying the PPP will step into elections with its own symbol and slogan. “PPP will issue tickets to its candidates from every constituency,” he said. Speaking at the Sukkur Press Club, Bilawal said that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif was a ‘compromised’ politician. He said Nawaz was never an ideological politician and can never be one in the future as well. The PPP chief said upcoming elections will be held on time and will be held in a peaceful manner. While mocking at Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman, Bilawal said whenever Imran Khan visits Sindh and addresses empty chairs, his tone gets harsh. “Both are favouring and fighting each other,” Bilawal said, in a jibe at his rivals PML-N and PTI.
Reiterating his support for PAT’s Dr Tahirul Qadri, Bilawal said the PPP will continue to support Qadri morally and politically in his struggle for justice. A day after commemorating the 10th death anniversary of Benazir Bhutto, the PPP leader once again stated that former president Pervez Musharraf was responsible for his mother’s murder. He said Musharraf was a murderer as he had more blood on his hands apart from the murder of Benazir. “If he is not a coward, he should come to Pakistan and face the courts,” he said.
