LAHORE: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has warned the government of turning the anti-interior minister campaign into a ‘Go Nawaz Go’ movement if his already announced demands are not met.
He was talking to the media after visiting the home of the party’s former secretary general Jehangir Bader near Thokar Niaz Baig, where he had gone to condole with the bereaved family on Thursday.
The PPP chairman categorically stated that his party would not take a step back or U-turn on its stance over the Panama leaks issue, as they wanted a democratic accountability of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif for his alleged involvement in the Panama leaks scandal.
He said his party’s current slogan was “Go Nisar Go”, which could be turned into “Go Nawaz Go” in case the PPP’s four demands were not met by December 27, 2016.
It is pertinent to mention here that Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has announced four demands – his party’s Panama bill should be passed by parliament, a parliamentary committee on national security be formed, a foreign minister be appointed immediately and the party’s Co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari’s resolution on CPEC (China-Pakistan Economic Corridor) be implemented. To a query about strengthening the party in Punjab, Bilawal said that the PPP office-bearers would be announced within 24 hours, and hoped that the party would win the next general election.
Speaking about the deceased PPP leader, Bilawal said that Jehangir Bader was a very valuable personality – not just for the party but also for national politics – and the vacuum created by his demise would never be filled. He confirmed that he would work with Bader’s son Ali Bader in the field of politics. He said that the new generation of the PPP would make a ‘new Pakistan’ with the help of experienced and diehard cadre of the party. TheDailyTimes
