Talking to media outside Adiala Jail, Bilawal Bhutto expressed that the PPP and his family are concerned about the health of the former president. He alleged that his family is being pressured by using Asif Zardari. “We never bowed down before wrongdoers, nor will we yield now”, he added.
PPP Chairman went on to say, “The accused and the case belong to Sindh but it is being investigated in Rawalpindi”. “President Zardari is surely sick but also encouraged, and he is ready to tolerate any atrocity”, he asserted adding that they are demanding human rights and hope the justice will prevail.
On the other hand, talking about the political situation in the country, Bilawal Bhutto expressed that they morally support the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rahman’s Azadi March. “We all agree on one thing which is that Prime Minister Imran Khan has to go”, he added. He went on to say that If Maulana is prevented from the constitutional right of protest then PPP will consider its own course of action.
Meanwhile, the scion of Bhutto dynasty asserted that the lives of the people have been strained by inflation. No single political party can solve public problems. “I send a message to the opposition parties that we all should play such cards which will refrain the third party to come, because even a broken democracy is better than dictatorship”, he added.
On Oct. 20, PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said government must think that running the affairs of country is not like playing a cricket match. He said politicians would be forced to hold protests if government will lock the parliament.
Talking to media outside Jinnah Hospital, he expressed that PM Imran Khan cannot complete his term as he does not possess the abilities to do so. He continued sayign that PPP would play its role in this so called democracy and will fight against dictatorship.
Bilawal further said the solution of problems of common man lies in democracy only. He asserted that everyone including traders are protesting against this government and country is moving towards anarchy.
He said that Sindh government is providing relief to public and free health facilities are being provided and issues of Karachi are being solved with the help private sector, adding that we should all work together solve issues of masses.
“As far as [JUI-F’s anti-government] Azadi march is concerned the position of PPP is very clear. We support [JUI-F chief] Maulana Fazlur Rehman’s march politically and morally,” Bilawal said on Monday while talking to reporters after meeting the PPP’s jailed supreme leader, Asif Ali Zardari, at Adiala Jail.
He said: “The PPP has always struggled for democracy and agrees on one-point agenda with Maulana Fazl that this government of Imran Khan must go so that we can save democracy.”The PPP chief said unfortunately the government has locked up the parliament.
“Imran Khan is not allowing the parliamentary system to function; not allowing any bill to be passed; not issuing production orders for jailed members; not allowing meetings of parliamentary committees.” He accused the government of pressurising courts; trying to throw out judges; using the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) as a political tool and threatening NAB chairman.
“So when all democratic paths are closed for opposition then we are left with no option but that of agitation, protest and roads blocks,” he said.
He said the PPP is not supporting a single party but democracy. He said PPP has had a long working relationship with Fazlur Rehman. “We think that the problems of this country are of such magnitude that all of us will have to solve these problems together.
Talking with reference to the PPP’s level of support to Fazl, he said ‘for now’ it is his and his party’s programme to support Maulana. “However, the PPP cabinet and core committees will take a final decision in this regard,” he added.

He said if any undemocratic behaviour is exhibited against the JUI-F’s march and if Fazl is not allowed to exercise his democratic right to protest, then the PPP will also protest.Talking with reference to Zardari’s health, he said the PPP and his family is very concerned as health condition of the former president is deteriorating rapidly.“But as I always say his health conditions may get worse but his determination is unshaken. He will remain steadfast on his principles and ideology for which Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto sacrificed her life and President Zardari himself spent over eleven years in prison,” he said.
He said the recently held by-polls in Larkana were mired in controversy as the Free and Fair Election Network (Fafen) also highlight irregularities during the Sindh Assembly seat election in which the PPP faced defeat despite being in power the province.
