Bilawal announces holding public meetings in Punjab

Pakistan People's Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has announced to hold public meetings in Punjab once again.
According to details, an important meeting of the PPP was held in Lahore, which was chaired by Bilawal Bhutto himself.
On the occasion, Bilawal said the party would soon announce the date for the public meeting in Multan, and also the schedule for other upcoming rallies.
PPP Central Punjab Chapter President Qamar Zaman Kaira said on the occasion that Imran Khan and Nawaz Sharif were not exposed to terrorist attacks; instead it was the PPP "that is at risk when it comes to the issue".
He demanded that security be given to the PPP leaders.
On the occasion, the PPP chairman also interviewed certain candidates from Sahiwal, Pakpattan, Okara, Sheikhupura and Nankana Sahib for their appointment at certain party posts.
Bilawal also directed the party members to accelerate the political activities in Punjab.
After the meeting, Kaira, while talking to the media, condemned the scuffle that broke out between parliamentarians on Thursday. He said that offensive remarks against women could not be tolerated in any case.
The PPP leadership said that having reservations over military courts did not mean that it favoured terrorism.
Meanwhile, Bilawal appreciated the Sindh government for increasing women's quota in government jobs from 5 percent to 15 percent, ordered through a notification on the International Women's Day.
In a statement, the PPP chairman said that such an increase in women's quota had set another precedence in the party's quest for empowering women and giving them more and more opportunities to play their due role in nation building.
"In every sphere of life, the role of women will be made more effective, thereby giving them a society where they are treated as equal partners in progress," he added.
