Bilawal asks public to stamp Arrow during countrywide by-polls

26

PPP Chairman and Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has sought public’s support in connections with countrywide by-elections to be held on Sunday (tomorrow), asking them to stamp on Arrow, the election symbol of Pakistan People’s Party.

In a video message issued on Saturday, Bilawal Bhutto regretted that he could not campaign for the by-elections as he was busy in highlighting the plight of flood affectees at world fora.

These by-elections were a crucial phase, he said, adding “An incompetent (leader) had robbed the 2018 election in Multan and now October 16 is an opportunity for the people of Multan to avenge that robbery.”

He said the PPP had elevated Yousaf Raza Gilani, elected from Multan, to prime ministership and he changed the map of the city through development. “Now, our candidate Syed Ali Musa Gilani will waste no time in serving you as soon as he gets elected,” he added.

Bilawal further said “In Charsadda, my brother Aimal Wali Khan is contesting election. Haji Ghulam Ahmad Bilour is taking part in by-poll in Peshawar. Vote for them.”

“We all together worked for democracy and Constitution’s restoration and we also gave Pakhtunkhwa name to the province,” he recalled.

The PPP chairman said “We have to join hands to crush terrorism. We have rendered sacrifices. We served poor. Now, people must vote for this service of ours.”

He also urged the public to vote for PPP candidate Abdul Hakeem Baloch who is contesting NA-237 by-election from Malir in Karachi. “The selected prime minister robbed the rights of the people of Malir for four years,” he added.
