Sacrifice of lion must to save democracy, says Bilawal
DAHARKI: Chairman Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Friday said sacrifice of lion is must now to save democracy, ARY News reported.
“Accept our four demands or face the upshot. Mian Sahib you have to give account of your assets. If judicial commission on Panama Papers investigation will not function, then your government will not run any further,” he warned Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif while addressing a massive public gathering at Daharki.
Lion is the party and election symbol of the ruling party, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz.
Bilawal said Panamagate was not a negligible scandal, but it was the biggest corruption scandal of the century. If Nawaz Sharif did not approve Panama Bill then he should know that ‘democracy is the best revenge’.
Supreme Court has begun hearing the Panama Leaks case against the PM and ordered the prime minister’s daughter and two sons to submit their response in the court by Monday regarding their off-shore assets revealed in Panama Papers.
The PPP chairman blamed the government for failure to woo world favor over the Kashmir issue. Immediately appoint a foreign minister for Pakistan, he demanded.
He expressed awe that how was the country being run without a foreign minister. “I am amazed that a three-time elected prime minister is unable to find a foreign minister,” he said.
He said Nawaz wanted to make Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi happy and make Afghanistan and Iran angry.
Zulfiqar Bhutto glorified Pakistan and you (Nawaz) destroyed it. Pakistan becoming isolated because of your policies, he said.
Bilawal said economic inequality should be eradicated and democratic economic justice system should be adopted, otherwise the federation would become weaker if you develop one area and neglect the other.
“Rs200billion spent on a train project in Lahore, while only Rs12billion given for train project of the most populated city of Pakistan, Karachi,” he said.
“What good is the Gawadar Port, if residents of Gawadar are unable to find even potable water.”
Bilawal also stressed for eradication of terrorism from Pakistan.
“Our struggle is to uproot terrorism and our struggle is for peaceful message of Islam. Jinnah and Bhutto’s Pakistan must be cleansed of terrorism,” he said.
