Chairman of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, has expressed his views on Nawaz Sharif’s political aspirations during a public address in Gujranwala. Bilawal questioned Nawaz Sharif’s desire to become Prime Minister for the fifth time, highlighting the former Prime Minister’s previous terms and his fourth term, which Bilawal referred to as a period of remote control governance.
Bilawal remarked, “If, God forbid, he becomes Prime Minister again, we will once again confront personal interests and old politics, leading to conflicts with those who bring him into power, followed by the familiar narrative of ‘why was I ousted.'”
The PPP Chairman emphasized that Nawaz Sharif’s refusal to hold elections at the scheduled time would result in protests on the streets, indicating a potential challenge to democratic norms.
Furthermore, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari asserted that some old politicians claim that the source of power lies elsewhere. He questioned the need for Nawaz Sharif to seek power again and warned that the public would expose those politicians who mislead them. Bilawal promised a surprise on February 8 that would be remembered as a game-changer.
Responding to a question about the Rawa Anwar revelation, Bilawal clarified, “This is just a diversion; they have launched it,” indicating that the controversy was being used to divert attention from more pressing issues.
Earlier, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari had discussed the presidential reference related to the sentence of former Prime Minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto in the Supreme Court, led by the Chief Justice of Pakistan. Bilawal expressed his confidence that he had witnessed the old politics of previous politicians and insisted on steering clear of such politics, which he believed hindered the progress of the country.
Bilawal highlighted the need for politicians to work within their boundaries, urging them to focus on their constituencies and contribute to the development of the nation. He emphasized that engaging in divisive politics and fostering animosity is detrimental to the economic and political progress of Pakistan.
The PPP Chairman concluded by advocating for a new era of politics that promotes collaboration and unity, burying the hatchet of hatred and division. Bilawal called for a resolution of differences through democratic means while working together to find solutions to the country’s challenges.
