Quetta: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Sunday warned the government to fulfill four demands put forth by him. Otherwise, he said, the PPP will start off an early election campaign.
He was talking to reporters in Quetta after visiting the Civil Hospital where he inquired after the health of those injured in the Police Training Centre attack.
He said that the prime minister was not functioning properly and the interior minister should immediately quit his office.
“The PPP will hold public rallies in the border areas of Punjab and Sindh on November 4. If are demands are not accepted, the protests will be expanded to the national level,” he said.
Criticising PTI chief Imran Khan, Bilawal said Khan was acting on the directions of “others and had become a puppet”. “It is unfortunate that he cannot take even a single step without [looking at] the finger of the umpire,” he said.
“My family and people of Balochistan share the same pain...I am no ordinary politician, I am the son of Benazir Bhutto. I am also a victim of this terrorism,” the tearful PPP chairman said while referring to the Quetta attack.
“I met people inside. Ten are injured and recovering. They can get better treatment in Karachi... In my personal capacity I will see that they get help from the Sindh government,” the PPP chairman said.
