KARACHI: While tagging Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) as Mutaqil Qaumi Musibat [permanent national problem], Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Sunday vowed to rid Karachi from same.
He was addressing a rally in MQM’s stronghold Liaquatabad area of Karachi.
Keeping verbal onslaught up against MQM, Bilawal stated that MQM sowed seeds of hatred premeditatedly in Karachi to halt PPP from making inroads into the metroplis. “The mandate of Karachi has always been hijacked by the gun. PPP isn’t party comprising target killers or sector in charges. We are not the one who run city with instructions from London”, taunted Bilawal.
“The relation of Karachi and Bhutto is from generations. But some forces didn’t like this. They sowed seeds of nationalism and violence in Karachi to halt the way of PPP,” said Bilawal while addressing PPP rally at Tanki Ground in Liaquatabad, Karachi.
The junior-Bhutto stated that they [read PPP] preferred to restore peace instead of hurling allegations at the opponents. “We initiated indiscriminate operation in Karachi. Now when peace has been restored in the city, everyone is trying to take the credit”, uttered Bilawal.
Bilawal asserted that PPP awarded independence to Karachi from the gauntlet of London. “If MQM founder is an evil, then his aides are also wicked ones”.
Keeping a jibe at Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI), Bilawal once again termed Imran Khan ‘lost brother of Taliban’. He made it overtly clear that PPP would not accept another ‘MQM founder’ under guise of captain [read Imran Khan].
On Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) supreme leader Nawaz Sharif’s slogan of respecting vote, Bilawal apprised Sharif that he had not respected the voter. —NNI
