Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari responded to Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Talal Chaudhry’s criticism in a very candid way on Friday.
Referring to Bilawal’s recent statement that the establishment was staying “neutral” in the Senate election, Talal tweeted after opposition candidates’ defeat in the election for the Senate chairman and deputy chairman’s office: “Mr Bilawal, did you enjoy the ‘neutral’ [establishment]?”
Later Friday evening, when Bilawal came to address a press conference on the results of the Senate election, someone asked him to comment on Talal’s criticism. In response, Bilawal said, “Mr Talal… what was that? tanzeem saazi (reorganisation). It wasn’t tanzeem saazi. We are waging a struggle for democracy.”
Bilawal responded to Talal Ch’s tweet. ‘I did not just wake up in 2018 and suddenly realized that the elections could be rigged. I have been fighting this fight for three generations. I know that one speech, a single protest won’t achieve neutrality, u have to struggle for it.’ pic.twitter.com/S5feZMmAT6— Anaya Khan (@AnayaNKhan) March 12, 2021
He said that Gilani’s defeat in the election for Senate chairman’s office should not split the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM). Earlier, Bialwal said the PDM would challenge Gilani’s defeat in the Supreme Court.
