Bilawal Bhutto directs party members to avoid anti-PDM comments


Karachi: Chairman Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari this week advised his party leaders and media teams to avoid any critical commentary on Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) following the fissure within the opposition alliance on the strategy that emerged after Asif Ali Zardari’s demand of return of Nawaz Sharif before en masse resignations can come to pass, ARY News reported.
According to the reports divulging from within party circles, Bilawal has instructed PPP leaders and responsible people overseeing media to refrain from any harsh comments to PDM which may weaken the opposition against the incumbent government.

Bilawal has instructed the leaders who appear before the media to make sure they don’t react to criticism in a way that compromises the opposition alliance’s agenda against the government.
Meanwhile, the PPP and the Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) have agreed to cooperate with each other in the next elections after Bilawal Bhutto met Siraj ul Haq yesterday at Mansoora in Lahore.

According to the details agreed by the two parties and shared by sources having knowledge of the entire discussion, the PPP wanted cooperation from Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) and Sindh provinces.

“Besides the future cooperation, the JI also extended its support to PPP for opposition leader in Senate,” said a JI leader quoting Sirajul Haq. The JI chief said during the meeting that since PPP had the majority seats, it has the right to have the slot of the opposition leader.
