IK nominated ex-Taliban leader for Ulema Seat in AJK assembly, says Bilawal
Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari Saturday said Prime Minister Imran Khan has nominated a former Taliban leader on the reserved seat for Ulema in the Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) assembly from his party.
According to 24News HD TV channel, Bilawal addressed a press conference after holding a meeting of party ticket holders in the AJK in Islamabad.
Bilawal condemned the act of the PM to nominate a former Taliban leader in AJK elections and urged him to avoid bringing such a mindset to people in politics.
He said the people of Kashmir were peaceful but Imran Khan was trying to show them like terrorists after nominating former representative of the Taliban in the AJK elections for reserved seats.
The PPP chairman said his party would change Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government with political struggle and a no-confidence motion could be filed if opposition reunited against Imran Khan.
He said despite PTI ministers and leaders rigging and distributing money in the AJK elections, his party had succeeded to snatch 11 seats.
Bilawal said Indian media used the wrongdoings of the ruling PTI in AJK elections against Pakistan. He suggested Imran Khan for taking care of the dignity of his chair of the premier.
On a query, Bilawal refused to comment on Nabil Gabol's statement saying he was neither party spokesperson nor leader and as a party worker from Leyari constituency in Karachi had no knowledge about the AJK elections.
About the coronavirus situation in Sindh, Bilawal said the PTI government in the centre had affected the vaccination campaign in the province and playing politics on the lives of the people.
He supported the Sindh government’s decision to lockdown saying that it had decided in view of the circumstances.
The PPP chairman warned that the federal government would be responsible if corona spread in Sindh like India as the province was being ignored seriously.
