Expressing worries over the worsening economic situation in the country, Pakistan People's Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari demanded that the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) announce the date of immediate elections.
According to the 24News HD TV channel, Bilawal addressed a press conference and said that the PPP's election strategy would be revealed once the schedule was announced. He also urged the commission to ensure a level playing field for all parties.
Bilawal also accused some of his political rivals of conspiring with former intelligence and judiciary officials to undermine the PPP's performance in the 2018 elections.
He claimed that a nexus between former General Faiz Hameed, former Chief Justice Saqib Nisar and a party had worked against the PPP. He added that a similar conspiracy had also been hatched by General Pasha, Iftikhar Chaudhary and a party to oust the PPP from Punjab.
The PPP chairman said that a party involved in the conspiracy had suffered the consequences of expelling the PPP from Punjab, and warned that the PPP was not a party of a single province.
PPP Chairman Bilawal also alleged that a character assassination campaign was being launched against the PPP and questioned why one of his allies was given preferential treatment by the authorities.
Bilawal said he was being always questioned for not giving time to Lahore but nobody asked former premier Mian Nawaz Sharif for neglecting Karachi.
Taunting one of his allied party leadership, Bilawal said It is said about one of his allies that they become friendly when gets into trouble and start snubbing when gets out of trouble.
Anyhow, he was determined that the PPP was committed to serving the people of Pakistan and would not compromise on its principles.
