FATEH JANG: PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, addressing a rally in Fateh Jang, promised employment opportunities for the people of the area and said the party has worked for the well-being of farmers. “PPP is notorious for opening the door of employment for the people,” Bilawal said.
He added that once the PPP comes into power, the party will ensure more employment opportunities for the people as “it is their basic right”.
Addressing his second rally in Punjab after Chiniot, the PPP chairperson said he is visiting different cities of the country and has also visited Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Mansehra, Chitral and Kaghan.
There in Peshawar people were dying of dengue virus, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairperson Imran Khan was busy addressing gathering in Sukkur.
“Imran Khan you fear terrorists, are you also scared of mosquitoes?” the PPP chairperson said.
Bilawal spoke about the policies of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, saying the party leadership had not appointed any foreign minister during their tenure.
But now that they have, the foreign minister is not working towards international relations, Bilawal maintained. “He has instead taken to GT Road and is asking people why his leader [Nawaz Sharif] was disqualified.”
Leaders of the party were also present at the rally ground with Bilawal.
While addressing the crowd, Leader of the Opposition Khursheed Shah said the rally was a proof of PPP’s existence in Punjab.
“It is said there is a virus of corruption in politics these days,” he said. “There is no doubt about it.”
He said that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif asks what his crime was that he was disqualified. “Nawaz Sharif should ask the public not us about where you went wrong.”
Also present on the occasion, PPP leader Manzoor Wattoo said none can compete with their leadership.
“Our leadership has made sacrifices for the sake of democracy,” he said. “We will stand [to contest elections] in Punjab under the leadership of Bilawal Bhutto.”
PPP leader Qamar Zaman Kaira was also present with Bilawal at the stage in the rally ground.
While speaking about the accountability court’s decision, Kaira said those spreading propaganda have gone into hiding as former president Asif Ali Zardari has been acquitted.
“Once again PPP has succeeded,” Kaira maintained. “Those hurling allegations against Zardari have been defeated.”
He added the former president faced consequences for the crime he never committed. “But now Zardari will play his political role.”
According to local leaders of the party, at least 20,000 chairs have been set up at the site, while flocks of activists and party workers were en route Fateh Jang from different parts of the country. Agencies
