Chairman, Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, has warned Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif of long march if he did not meet his four demands.
Addressing a mammoth Salam Shuhada rally at Karsaz, Bilawal said that if the government did not meet the demands he would announce a long march at Garhi Khuda Bux (Larkana) on December 27, 2016.
“I demand reconstitution of parliamentary committee on national security, appointment of a full-fledged foreign minister, passage of opposition’s draft Panama Inquiry Bill and implementation of the resolution on CPEC adopted at an All-Party Conference hosted by Asif Ali Zardari,” Bilawal said at Karsaz, where a monument was constructed to pay homage to the PPP workers, who were killed in the twin blasts at Benazir Bhutto’s homecoming rally on October 18, 2007.
PPP Chairman said that due to growing Indian belligerence on Line of Control and its brutalities in occupied Kashmir, Pakistan needed national unity and it was Prime Minister’s duty to take measures for evolving national unity. He said that his four demands were also aimed at forging unity.
He said that entire Pakistan should benefit from China-Pakistan Economic Corridor. He urged Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to desist from acting like a businessman and protecting his business interests and profits.
“I alert you that your economic policies, foreign policy and Kashmir policy are weak and the weakness is making Pakistan weak,” he said adding that PPP and the entire nation want peace, democracy and freedom of Kashmir.
He also lashed out at Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi for atrocities in occupied Kashmir and belligerence on the LoC.
He said Modi was nobody to dub Pakistan as terrorist because Modi himself was involved in brutalities and wanted to deflect world attention from Indian atrocities in Kashmir through blame game.
Bilawal said that he was the heir of martyrs of Pakistan, who sacrificed their lives fighting terrorists at borders and inside the country, of the martyrs of democracy and at top of them were Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, Benazir Bhutto, his maternal uncles and others.
He said uncle Imran Khan had met Modi and got photographed together with Indian Prime Minister.
He said Nawaz Sharif invited Modi to attend the marriage party of his maternal granddaughter. He said these steps were not in the interests of Pakistan.
He said he had objected to the wrong policies of the PML-N government. He said that under National Action Plan, operation continued in Balochistan, Sindh and FATA but PML-N government excluded some areas from anti-terrorists operation.
He urged that NAP should be implemented in all parts of Pakistan. He proposed that the parliamentary committee on national security should oversee the NAP and its implementation.
