Bilawal talked to media during his visit to the PPP membership drive camp in Karachi.

KARACHI (Dunya News) – As the political atmosphere heats up ahead of the upcoming general election, Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto on Wednesday challenged PML-N’s acting president Mian Shehbaz Sharif and PTI chief Imran Khan to contest election from Karachi.

Speaking to media during his visit to the PPP membership drive camp in Karachi, Bilawal said Shehbaz and Imran will face worst defeat if they contested election from Karachi.

“I hope people of Pakistan will support PPP because it is the only political party which speaks about public issues and try to resolve them,” he said. 

“People are not concerned that why Nawaz Sharif was ousted from the premiership, they only want elimination of unemployment, poverty and terrorism,” he added.

He claimed that only his party can make Pakistan a prosperous and developed country.

Bilawal Zardari challenged his opponents a day after the Central Working Committee of the ruling Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) elected Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif as party’s acting president and Nawaz Sharif as Nawaz Sharif as its ‘Quaid’ for life.

The charge was given to Shehbaz Sharif a week the Supreme Court ordered that ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif be removed as head of the political party he founded. Nawaz Sharif was disqualified as the prime minister over unreported income.


There are reports that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan will be contesting the 2018 general election from Karachi as well.

PTI spokesperson Fawad Chaudhry confirmed that Imran Khan will kick off his nationwide tour on March 4 and will begin the electioneering after March 8.
