Bilawal warns of long march on Islamabad if G-B polls are rigged
Says let people decide who their representatives are: Undemocratic forces at work even in 2020
PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Friday promised to reach Gujranwala despite the hurdles and roadblocks and said they would share the message of the city’s people with Imran Khan.
The facilitator of Imran Khan must be realising [now] that “Imran does not worth it” given the problems faced by the country and the people, he remarked.
An ocean of masses will attend the public meeting to tell Imran Khan that the time has come to leave the office, he noted. “The time is over for the selected and puppet regime,” he said.
“Let the people decide through free and fair elections who their representatives are.”
Addressing a press conference in Lalamusa, Bilawal said the people of Pakistan were free, not slave, adding that their democratic rights would have to be accepted.
He said the PTI government could not digest even a single rally organised by the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM). His party workers and office holders were harassed and arrested, Bilawal noted.
“You cannot register FIR over hunger, you cannot register FIR over jobless,” said the angry Bilawal.
The PPP chairman warned against any rigging in Gilgit-Baltistan elections and said they would march towards along with the people of the region in case their mandate was stolen which would prove a serious security risk. The 2018 trailer was being repeated in Gilgit-Baltistan, he added.
Bilawal regretted that undemocratic forces at work even in 2020 and noted that the time for giving sacrifices was over as those shedding people’s blood would have to give answer. “Our workers do not want to see the dictatorial period again.”
About those bringing Imran Khan into borders, he said his party had always struggled for free and fair elections while demanding the military should perform their duties at borders. “Every institution must work within its domain.”
