PPP to maintain contacts with Shehbaz, Hamza in parliamentary politics: Bilawal Bhutto

KHAIRPUR (Dunya News) - Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that only his party is opposing PTI while the rest of the opposition is engaged in in-fighting, ultimately benefitting Imran Khan. He announced that his party will remain in contact with Shehbaz Sharif and Hamza Shehbaz for parliamentary politics.

The PPP Chairman said this after he visited Jilani House in Khairpur and offered condolences to former Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah on the demise of his son Muzaffar Ali Shah and daughter Najma Shah.

Talking to media along with Qaim Ali Shah, he said that Shehbaz Sharif is the Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly while Hamza Shehbaz is the Leader of the Opposition in the Punjab Assembly, we must remain in contact with both in parliamentary politics and focus on the incompetent PTI government.

Continuing, he said that we want new and transparent elections in the country. The 2018 elections were rigged against PPP and the demand for transparency has been our long standing policy. He said that PPP has never signaled the end of a government’s term and it never will, although other parties may have said such things.

He said that everyone knows the past of PPP, we do not believe in the politics of ‘deals’ and we denounce accusing each other of making deals. Statements against each other will not be beneficial for the opposition, and I will not respond to them even though I am quite capable, he added.

The PPP chairman said that he worked hard and went to every province to lay the foundation of PDM. Even today, he wants the opposition parties to work together as only then will Imran Khan not be able to complete his term. “I still believe the opposition should take on the government instead of fighting among themselves”, he added.
