Free, transparent election peneaca of all country’s problems: Bilawal
Pakistan People’s Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Monday said that the ‘selected’ government cannot serve Pakistan as well as the public properly.
Addressing a worker’s convention in Nowshera, Bilawal Bhutto said that the Pakistan People’s Party thinks and works for the nation unlike other parties working for their own interests. He said that the federation does not seem to care about the rising inflation.
The PPP Chairman laid stress on the conduction of pure and just elections. He said that the worker’s fervor in Nowshera tells him that they are ready for elections and not trying to escape.
Bilawal said he is thankful to the Jiyalas for providing him with an opportunity to meet them. Chairman Bilawal said that the PPP is feeling the loss of Liaqat Shabab after reaching Naushera.
The series of the party’s conventions has made it apparent that the Jiyalas of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa have woken up, are charged, demanding for elections and not running away from them.
Chairman Bilawal said that the residents of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa battled terrorism and extremism bravely and remained firm to their ideology. He said that the Jiyalas of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa faced three dictators and also faced terrorists and extremists while looking at them in the eye.
“They rendered great sacrifices but did not back down from their ideology and support for the Party. We are proud of our Jiyalas,” he remarked. The ones contesting the elections for 30 and 70 years should not rely on the establishment this time, said Bilawal.
Bilawal said that the opposition is always conspiring against the government. He demanded that the Chief Justice and Chief Election Commissioner ensure the conduction of pure and just elections as it is the only solution for the problems swamping Pakistan.
“It is our hope that the Election Commission of Pakistan and Justice Qazi Faez Isa will ensure that the upcoming elections are not controversial and their results are not questioned, because if they are, then what is the use of wasting billions of rupees that belong to the people? If free and fair elections do not take place, then the government made as a result will not be able to represent the country and solve its problems.
We will witness the same old outcome, with one side ruling over the country unjustly while the other cries foul,” he remarked. The decision of the public only will be acceptable. He said that Inflation, unemployment and poverty have reached sky-high levels and terrorism is on the rise during these hard times.
“There is a plethora of issues we are witnessing in the country. Inflation, poverty and unemployment have reached unprecedented levels and Islamabad is doing nothing to rectify them. The peace that had been established in the country with much difficulty, through the sacrifices of the people and the country’s security forces.
