Chairman of the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, expressed concerns over the recent elections, stating that politicians did not approach the election with the seriousness it deserved. In an interview, Bilawal emphasized the need for electoral and democratic reforms, urging parties like PTI and PML-N to adopt the rules of the game.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari pointed out that the political atmosphere during the elections was not as robust as before, signaling a decline in the seriousness with which the electoral process was approached. He stressed the necessity for electoral and democratic reforms to ensure a more transparent and accountable political system.
Addressing the return of Mian Nawaz Sharif, Bilawal conveyed that if Nawaz Sharif had toured the provinces, it would have sent a message that people were present and engaged with him. However, he criticized the decision to confine Nawaz Sharif, stating that it gave the wrong impression that politicians should only fight rather than work together.
Furthermore, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari criticized the PTI government, stating that it came into power through non-democratic forces. He argued that the founder of PTI sent curses to the Parliament, and the party trained the youth to adopt confrontational methods against each other, creating an environment of hostility.
Bilawal stated that the PTI’s objectives seemed to align with bringing Mian Nawaz Sharif back to power for the fourth time. He highlighted the misconception that politicians should only focus on fighting rather than collaborating for the betterment of the country.
In conclusion, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari stressed the importance of adopting democratic values, working together, and focusing on the development of the country. He urged political parties to prioritize the welfare of the people over personal conflicts and called for a more constructive political environment.
