The head of the Pakistan Peoples Party, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, stated here on Wednesday that delaying the elections will not address the nation’s problems. He denounced the proposals to postpone the general elections in the aftermath of the most recent terrorist incidents and asserted that cooperation could overcome all obstacles.
Under the guise of inclement weather and terrorism, certain groups are pleading for a postponement of the elections. Speaking before a sizable crowd in public, he added, “Such a move will only damage the national economy.” He insisted that the current uptick in terrorist attacks was caused by the decisions made by the previous Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government and swore that if his party were elected to power, it would eradicate the threat of terrorism from the nation.
For the general election, Bilawal urged the political class to unite and abandon the old-fashioned approach of isolating their opponents. He claimed that Nawaz, the leader of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz and founder of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), would find it uncomfortable that they are involved in retaliatory acts.
He stated there shouldn’t be any more “politics of revenge,” using her mother Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto as an example of someone caught up in purportedly false charges. He claimed that although the founder of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf had offered young people the “hope of a change,” he later made u-turns. He went on to say that every politician ought to ask forgiveness for their transgressions.
Before the polls, he noted, some individuals were still calling for equal opportunities. On February 8, the PPP chairman said that his party was capable of handling any national crisis and advised the populace to carefully select their representatives. In addition to offering assistance to the general public and removing the privileges enjoyed by the elite, Bilawal pledged, if granted the mandate, to free all political prisoners on the first day of his administration.
He stated that he battles unemployment, poverty, and price increases. According to Bilawal, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s development would speed up, and three million low-income homes would be built.
