CHINIOT Aug 12: Pakistan Peoples Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said on Saturday that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and PTI chief Imran Khan were two sides of the same coin and that neither of the two had the capability to solve Pakistan’s problems.
Speaking to a public rally in Chiniot, Bilawal said that every PPP government had undertaken development projects for the city.
“PPP had given the go-ahead to make Chiniot a district,” he said. “The current government is not worried about the masses but they are instead focused more on the coffers,” he said.
Bilawal slammed ex-prime minister Nawaz Sharif for leading a rally from Islamabad to Lahore. The PPP chairman wondered who Nawaz was sending a message with his power show.
The PPP chairman said that his party workers were once again ready to defeat PML-N in the general elections. He said that PPP was defeated in the polls according to a planned strategy.
“In 2013 polls, we were defeated according to a well thought-out strategy,” he said.
Bilawal slammed PTI chairman Imran Khan as well during his speech, asking the cricketer-turned-politician what he had done for the people of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa ever since his party came to power in the province.
“In which area of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa are the rivers of milk and honey flowing?” he asked.
Bilawal said that if Imran Khan’s Naya Pakistan consisted of a place where women were no longer safe, the Taliban were estranged brothers and abuses were common, then the people would reject such an ideology.
“Nawaz Sharif and Imran Khan are two sides of the same coin,” shouted Bilawal. “Both of them have damaged the politics of this country,” he added.
He urged the people not to be dismayed by Nawaz and Imran but told them to vote for PPP in the next election.
