The Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that in the month of March, the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) will hold a long march to Islamabad under all circumstances.

Addressing a PDM rally in Hyderabad on Tuesday, he said the anti-poor government has made life difficult for people. “This is the same Imran Khan who promised to create 10 million jobs, provide 5 million houses and not take loans. He used to say that he would commit suicide before going to the IMF, but he has taken the most loans during the past three years.

Bilawal Bhutto said that Imran Khan has put every Pakistani in debt. Today, Pakistan’s growth rate lags behind that of Afghanistan and Bangladesh and it faces the highest inflation in the region.

He said that according to Transparency International (TI), historic corruption is taking place in Pakistan but he is not questioned about corruption in BRT and Billion Tree Tsunami projects.

The PPP chairman said that the illegitimate Prime Minister has destroyed the economy as well as democracy. “Inshallah there will be a long march in March. We will form a people’s government by removing the selected, incompetent and illegitimate Prime Minister”, he said.

“We have to make the public the source of power,” he added. We will oust this illegitimate and incompetent government and form a people’s government that will protect economic and democratic rights.

Addressing the PDM rally in Hyderabad, Fazlur Rehman said that PDM will not rest until it sends the incompetent government packing. These rulers came to power through the back door, he added.

Referring to DG ISPR’s recent statement, he said that it is heartening to hear the establishment say it is neutral. “We also want the military to play no role other than defense”, said the PDM chief.

He further said that PDM was not in favour of voting by name. Even the Election Commission had said that the ballot was always secret. Now the Supreme Court has been put to the test by taking the matter to them. “I will appeal to the court not to make itself a party and controversial on this issue”, he said.

The PDM Chief said that their workers will not tire as movements are run with self-confidence, enthusiasm and commitment. He vowed that the anti-government movement would surely
reach its destination.
