Stamp ‘Arrow’ instead of voting independent candidates, Bilawal ‘again’ asks PTI workers

RAWALPINDI: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari asked the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) workers and supporters to vote for the PPP instead of the independent candidates backed by the latter.

Addressing a public gathering at Rawalpindi, Bilawal asked the PTI workers and supporters to realise their founder is not contesting the elections and will not be able to become the prime minster.

“This is the time to be cautious but not to be emotional. The emotional PTI voters should understand that the PPP has been facing them for three generations,” he added.

He said that all the candidates backed by the PTI are ‘planted’. “Go out of the homes and vote for Arrow,” he told the PTI workers and supporters.

Bilawal said that Pakistan is going through severe economic and democratic crises. The PPP chief said that once again terrorism is emerging, adding that the politics of hatred and division as well as political victimisation have led to these crises.

“Only the PPP could get Pakistan out of trouble. We have announced 10-point agenda to cope with inflation, unemployment and poverty,” he added.

Bilawal said that there will be no “Good or Bad Taliban” in Pakistan anymore and every terrorist will be brought to justice. “Only those who recognise Pakistan’s constitution will be pardoned and those who take up arms against the country will be given a befitting reply,” the PPP Chairman warned.

Bilawal said that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz supremo Nawaz Sharif wants to be the prime minister for the fourth time using ‘undemocratic’ means. “This is their (PML-N’s) misapprehension that that he (Nawaz Sharif) will become the premier for the fourth time by using undemocratic means,” the PPP Chairman added.

He went on to say that the PPP along with the people of Pakistan would halt any ‘undemocratic’ move during and after the Elections 2024.

He added that any group resorting to taking up weapons against the state would receive a befitting response.

“It is crucial to address the issue of terrorism promptly. Pakistan has a tendency to make excuses until terrorism reaches its peak and endangers our children. Only then do we engage in the fight against terrorists,” Bilawal said.

He was of the view that only the PPP could rid the country of the economic, democratic, and social crises it was embroiled in. “We took Benazir’s ideology forward and presented our manifesto based on the principles of fighting poverty and unemployment,” he said.

Bilawal also vowed to bury the concept of revenge politics and form a “truth and reconciliation commission” after coming into power.

Towards the end of his address, he urged the people to vote for the “arrow” and said that PPP was the only political party that could take all stakeholders forward.
