Addressing more than 100 political leaders, office-bearers and workers who had defected to the PPP from Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM), Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) and Pakistan Muslim League – Functional (PML-F) during the last eight months in Karachi, he said that those joining the PPP from other parties would be given full opportunities to change the political landscape of the provincial capital.
Zubair Khan, the central president of PTI’s labour wing, Naeem Shaikh, the former town nazim of Korangi, Sheikh Mohammad Feroz, Farah Shaikh and Samina Salam were among those who have recently joined the party.
“Let us work together for the restoration of the City of Lights and the City of Peace besides [ensuring] provision of food, shelter and clothes to every citizen,” said Bilawal.
According to Bilawal, the vision of the founding party leadership was to strengthen a democratic Pakistan with its destiny lying in the hands of the public. “PPP has experienced great political movements, leading the people from the front for the rights of the people and our country,” he added.
He said that PPP candidates will win majority of the seats in Karachi in the 2018 general elections.
