Demands passing of PPP’s bill in Senate over Panama Leaks
Dharki—PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Friday said accountability needs to start from the prime minister and the premier needs to present himself for ‘democratic accountability’.
Addressing a public rally here Bilawal said he was not accusing the prime minister of corruption, but the evidence brought forth in the Panama Papers reveals his corruption for all to see.
The PPP chairman, criticising the PML-N government, said the current policies pursued by the government of Nawaz Sharif are some of the worst in the history of the country and the same policies have divided the people.
“We need the people to be united, but Nawaz Sharif, your flawed policies have divided the people,” said Bilawal.
The PPP chairman also reminded the prime minister that he is not a monarch, neither is Raiwind the throne of Pakistan. “Pakistan is a democracy, not a monarchy, you are a prime minister and not a king”.
Bilawal also questioned the current government on its lack of transparency and answers to questions which have been raised in the parliament and Senate.
He also asked why is the inquiry report not made public after attacks on national institutions.
“You (Nawaz) will have to answer the people, you have never answered the people,” added Bilawal.
The PPP chairman also said large public development schemes should be transparent and noncontroversial.
Bilawal, addressing his party workers, also questioned Nawaz’s ‘friendship’ with Indian Prime Narendra Modi. “We do not know what benefit you get by being friends with Modi?” The PPP chairman said he wants to neutralise “Modi’s conspiracy against Pakistan”.
He was accompanied by former premiers Yousaf Raza Gilani and Raja Pervez Ashraf among others.
Talking about Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s withdrawal of protest call in Islamabad, Bilawal said that what happened in the federal capital would bear ‘dangerous’ results.
Bilawal asserted that PPP would not let any leader escape accountability. He warned the government to accept PPP’s four demands otherwise ‘arrow’ would aim for the ‘lion’.
He said that the opposition wanted democratic accountability of the leaders of the government. Bilawal said that PPP brought positive change in Sindh and it would work to bring the same in the country with the help of the people. Besides the government, Imran Khan also was subjected to harsh criticism when Bilawal demanded him to introduce Ikramullah Niazi to the people.
He accused Prime Minister Nawaz Shairf of leading the country into international Isolation. Bhutto said Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi was hatching conspiracies “but government and Nawaz Sharif are silent”.
He said the prime minister has failed in winning international community’s support in the wake of Indian atrocities in occupied Kashmir.
