PESHAWAR: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari Saturday suspended his election campaign for two days due to the terrorist attack in Mastung and in solidarity with martyrs of Mastung.
“After two days, Bilawal will resume his election campaign from Rawalpindi,” said Senator Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar, Spokesman to Chairman PPP. Senator Khokhar said that despite security concerns, PPP chairman will go to Punjab and other parts of the country.
Bilawal visited his constituency in Malakand today and met local PPP leadership but suspended his election campaign in NA-8 in solidarity with the people of Balochistan. Bilawal was told not to leave Peshawar Cantt by security officials.
I will come again to Malakand after the elections whether I win this seat or not.” He asked his supporters to defeat the terrorists by voting for the PPP on Election Day. Chairman PPP will spend the night in Malakand.
“Those leaders who have shown no remorse for the martyrs of Mastung are not fit to be called national leaders. To be a national leader, you need to be sensitive and have pain for the nation,” said Senator Khokhar.
Khokhar further said that it is not possible that on the one hand we are burying 130 martyrs and on the other we are holding jalsas. The PPP stands with the people of Pakistan, not vested interests.—APP
