Pakistan People’s Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari in his maiden speech in the National Assembly on Friday expressed hope that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan would refrain from doing politics of hatred as prime minister of the country.
The PPP chairman addressed the House after Imran Khan was elected 22nd prime minister of Pakistan.
Bilawal Bhutto said he was anticipating how the newly-elected prime minister would implement his 100-day plan.
The PPP chairman, at the beginning of his speech, also paid tribute to the martyrs who laid down their lives in the attacks during the time of General Election 2018.
He said that an investigation should be carried out of the attacks in Peshawar, Mastung and Quetta, which caused heavy damage in terms of human lives.
While expressing his disdain over the disorder in the House, he said that protest is the right of any political party, however, it was unacceptable the way it was done in the session today.
He also expressed hope that the new NA Speaker Asad Qaiser will keep the House in order. The PPP chairman claimed that rigging took place before and after the elections, adding that across Pakistan polling agents were expelled from the polling stations.
Bhutto criticized Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and Pakistan Muslim League-N for ruckus in the National Assembly during election of the Prime Minister of Pakistan.
“This House is supreme and mother of all institutions, we have not learnt from the past,” Bilawal said.
Bilawal also congratulated Imran Khan on being elected as prime minister and hoped Khan will bury the politics of hatred as he is not the premier of any particular party but that of entire Pakistan.
Bilawal, in his first address to the National Assembly, delivered a measured and mature speech in English.
Although he said it was his “honour to become a part of this house”, the 29-year-old criticised the “two biggest parties for creating a ruckus” in the parliament.
