Establishment should have no role in politics: Bilawal Bhutto

LAHORE Nov 13: Pakistan Peoples Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Monday said, in reference to the MQM-P and PSP saga, the establishment should have no role in politics.

“Establishment should have no role in politics. They should explain and justify the discrepancies in regards to what happened in Karachi.”

The PPP scion, while speaking to the media, added that a strange game was being played in the metropolis. He added that the PPP wants to bring development, justice and a ‘clean’ governance to the city.

Bilawal said the political game being played in Karachi will fail as the PPP will provide leadership to the city after the general elections.

“I do not know what drama is being played in Karachi some people want to stop the PPP in elections,” added Bilawal.

Criticising Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf Chairman Imran Khan, Bilawal referred to him as a puppet said he would fail like the ‘puppets in Karachi’.

The PPP chairman, while talking in regards to former president Pervez Musharraf, said he is an absconder and needs to return as he has cases pending against him.

“He needs to return in handcuffs and be presented in court. No one is above the law,” stated Bilawal.

Referring to former prime minister Nawaz Sharif, he expressed hope that the courts would serve justice in Nawaz’s cases and further stated that the Model Town case should be picked up by the courts.

On Sunday, Bilawal said that Karachi’s citizens will not give any importance to ‘puppet politicians.’

“Karachi’s political situation is odd,” he said, adding “a strange game is being played with the people of Karachi.”

“We are struggling to give Karachi a sense of ownership and we know Karachi’s citizens won’t pay heed to puppet politicians,” said Bilawal while speaking to media after attending the death anniversary of former PPP Secretary General Jahangir Badar.

The PPP scion was referring to developments this week between the Pakistan Sarzameen Party and Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan, which announced a political alliance and then proceeded to hurl serious allegations against each other, including that the two were brought to the table by the ‘establishment’.
