Bilawal Bhutto likely to skip PDM protest outside ECP
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari will not go to Islamabad on January 19 to attend the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) protest outside the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), ARY News reported on Friday, citing sources.
Sources prior to the matter told ARY News that PPP leader Bilawal Bhutto’s participation in PDM protest outside ECP is unlikely as the latter will visit Sukkur on January 18 and Umerkot on January 19 to address ceremonies arranged by party workers.
It is pertinent to be stated here that the opposition alliance had made an announcement to protest outside ECP office on January 19.
Last week, Prime Minister Imran Khan directed authorities not to create any hurdle in the protest movement of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) – an alliance of 11 opposition parties.
