Bilawal advises PML-N not to boycott general election

July 4, 2018

NAWABSHAH: Chairman PPP, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that the PML-N knows it is losing but this does not mean it should take itself out of the race.

Talking to the newsmen at Zardari House in Nawabshah, Bilawal Bhutto said that those who have failed to make their manifestos public want the elections to be delayed but there is no room for late elections.

Bilawal said he believed that the people of Pakistan were with him and his party. We must strive to adopt democracy in the country, he said.

He went on to say that everyone knows how acute the water shortage is but the PPP was the first to raise the issue. Our party strengthened the banks of a 100-kilometre-long canal and set up reverse osmosis plants across the province, said Bilawal, adding that Asia’s largest reverse osmosis plant had been set up in Nawabshah. No plants were set up in the other provinces, he reminded the media persons.

Repeating his earlier assertions that the PPP was the first to raise the issue, he said the party’s senators had spoken about the water crisis in parliament but no one listened to them.

Now that the elections are nearing, everyone seems to have remembered the water crisis, he said. Bilawal said that the PPP is the only party that has taken steps to resolve the crisis. One of these steps is the construction of small dams in Sindh, he said. The PPP chairman started his election campaign for the July 25 general election from Karachi on Sunday. He has since visited Hyderabad, Thatta, Tando Jam, Hatri Bypass, Mithiani, Hala, Nawabshah and Sanghar among other districts. After completing his tour of Sindh, the 29-year-old is expected to head to Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. INP
