Islamabad Politics Report/Moazzam Raza Tabassam: The PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said on Wednesday that boycotting the elections is not a wise decision, adding ,”May be other parties want to delay the election scheduled for July 25 so they can rig or come in power through the wrong means.”
“The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) should not quit the electoral race fearing defeat,” the PPP chairman said while addressing a press conference at Zardari House in Nawabshah.
Bilawal further said,”All political parties should contest the election.”
Responding to a question, Bilawal said, “We want the elections to be held on time, in fact PPP is the only party that has launched its manifesto.”
The construction of dams is the responsibility of governments, Bilawal Said.
However, the PPP chairman upheld, “No judiciary in the world has ever been involved in the construction of a dam.”
Chairman PPP Bilawal Bhutto Zardari addressed on Wednesday hugely crowded public gathering at Sarkan and Qazi Abad during his election campaign in Sindh.
Bilawal Bhutto was accompanied by former chief ministers Qaim Ali Shah, Murad Ali Shah, Nasir Shah, Waqar Mehdi, Syed Ghulam Mustafa Shah, Ghulam Qadir Chandio and other party leaders.
The political parties, who have so far not revealed their manifestos, are challenging him, PPP chairman said while addressing a rally in Sindh’s Sakrand area, as a part of his ongoing election campaign.
“Taliban Khan and the one asking ‘Why was I ousted’, both have no manifestos. How can they contest against us?,” said Bilwal.
Bilawal said that the PPP always introduced a farmer-friendly manifesto, adding that his party will provide interest-free loans.
He said that the people of Sindh had defeated terrorism.
“You are the people who have defeated Zia-ul-Haq and dictator Pervez Musharraf,” said Bilawal to the crowd.
He said that to alleviate the condition of the poor in the province, the PPP will introduce food cards and open a food store which will be operated by women.
The PPP chairman started his election campaign for the July 25 general election from Karachi on Sunday. He has since visited Hyderabad, Thatta, Tando Jam, Hatri Bypass, Mithiani, Hala, Nawabshah and Sanghar among other districts.
After completing his tour of Sindh, Bilawal Bhutto is expected to head to Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa next week.
