LAHORE: Terming the Panama scandal ‘the biggest case of corruption in the world’, Pakistan People’s Party chairman Bilawal Bhuto on Wednesday vowed to launch a movement against the government of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif if his demands are not fulfilled by the deadline on December 27.
Bhutto, while addressing during the foundation day, said that the entire nation will come out on the streets if he decides to take to the streets. “We will bring down the dictatorship of the throne of Lahore,” he said.
He said that Lahore was the birthplace of the PPP, and has showered immense respect to his illustrious grandfather Zulfikar Ali Bhutto who founded the party 49 years ago in the city.
“The PPP started its political journey from Lahore,” he said. He further said that his mother and former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto had also received a rousing welcome upon arrival from exile in 1986 in Lahore.

He stated that Benazir had received the political responsibility at a young age, but never resorted to any sit-in or attacked any institution, and was only a steadfast political leader.
He decried that family of Nawaz Sharif was given amnesty, while Z.A. Bhutto was hanged and the killers of Benazir were never brought to justice. “We will give justice to the country, when Bilawal come he would revolutionise the country,” he said.
He said that the PPP was the chain which binds the four provinces of Pakistan. He stressed that a change was coming in the PPP through intra-party elections and a new constitution will be brought soon. This, he said, will bring the rise of a new PPP.
PPP Punjab President Qamar Zaman Kaira said former President Asif Ali Zardari would come back to Pakistan soon. He lauded the services of former Army Chief General Raheel Sharif, and said that the nation had a lot of hope with the new Army Chief General Qamar Bajwa.
He claimed that the PPP would win the next elections in 2018 and will not fall for the political gimmicks of Shahbaz Sharif and Imran Khan.
