Bilawal Bhutto warns Imran Khan against attacking institutions

Staff Writer

Karachi: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said this week that former Imran Khan wanted every national institution to serve and support him like his Tiger Force.

Addressing a public meeting at the old terminal of Karachi airport, he said Imran Khan did not want that the national security institutions to remain non-controversial and wishes that these institutions should assume the role of the Tiger Force and provide him their support.

He said that former PM had started attacking the national institutions and judiciary as he had not been rescued by them in the near past.

The former PM had no basis to wage any protest movement in the country as his rule had caused an irreversible damage to the national economy, he added.

Bilawal Bhutto said the former ruler wanted that early elections should be held to pave the way for his ‘selection’ again. However, he made it clear that electoral reforms would be adopted first as per the public demand before holding the next general elections as carrying out the reform process doesn’t mean that polls are being avoided.

The PPP chairman who is also the foreign minister said the former PM had claimed that a conspiracy had been hatched against his government at the White House but the reality was that the plot against the regime of Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf had not been initiated from outside of the country and it was hatched at the Bilawal House.

The PPP chairman said the constitutional and democratic method of no-confidence motion had been used to get rid of Imran Khan’s regime for ensuring real change in the country.

The PPP chairman said that Imran Khan’s regime in the past three-and-a-half-years had caused an unprecedented harm to the country as the former PM had attacked the Constitution to avoid the no-confidence motion.

He said that former PM did not believe in rule of law as Imran Khan wanted to transform the entire country into his Tiger Force. He said former PM and his cronies had to become answerable for their act to undermine the Constitution before the ouster of the PTI’s government.

Bilawal Bhutto said that Pakistan would establish its relations with the international community, including China, on an equal basis.

The FM maintained that China could play an important role in the development of Pakistan. He said the federal government should support all the provinces without any discrimination to overcome the situation of serious water crisis in the country. He demanded that all the provinces should face the water shortage on a fair basis as per the Water Accord of 1991.
