LAHORE/KARACHI: State Minister for Water and Power Abid Sher Ali on Wednesday turned his guns towards Pakistan People’s Party chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, asking him to bring his father back to the country before pointing fingers at others.
The minister said the PPP chairman should first bring his father Asif Ali Zardari back before accusing others of wrongdoings. ‘Name of Benazir Bhutto also appeared in Panama Papers,’ added Abid Sher Ali.
The firebrand PML-N leader from Faisalabad also took an exception to Bilawal Bhutto for calling names and insulting senior politicians, and himself went on to call the young Bhutto ‘auntie Zarina’.
Advisor to Chief Minister Sindh for Information, Moula Bux Chandio replying to Abid Sher Ali’s accusations asked him to ‘hold his tongue’ and stop using unparliamentarily language against Pakistan People’s Party (PPP).
In a statement, Chandio said that due to Abid Sher Ali’s behavior and undemocratic way PMLN is going on the path of confrontation. He said due to the continuous victory of Pakistan People’s Party in by-elections in Sindh, Abid Sher Ali along with other party leaders is depressed and frustrated and using indecent language.
Chandio said that PML-N due to their failure to solve the problems of masses is also loosing public support whereas the PPP is gaining support of the masses under the young, energetic and dynamic charismatic leadership of Bilawal Bhutto. Bilawal’s outstanding political vision is not bearable for PMLN-, he added.
Late in the day media reports said Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif has taken notice of Abid Sher Ali’s statements and asked him to refrain from issuing inappropriate statements.
