CHINIOT/ISLAMABAD: Pakistan People's Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said on Saturday that the PPP was defeated in the 2013 elections through a 'plan'.
Every PPP government, Bilawal said, had served the common people.
Addressing a public gathering in Chiniot, he said that the enthusiasm of the jiyalas shows that the party is all set to launch its election campaign with full fervour.
Bilwal urged the PPP workers to get ready to defeat the PML-N. "PML-N is anti-labour, anti-poor and anti-farmer and the sole purpose of its leaders is to fill their own treasuries," he said taking a jibe at the PML-N.
Hitting out at Nawaz and snubbing his recent statements, he said that the Supreme Court had disqualified him [Nawaz].
"He [Nawaz] should explain who he is protesting against," Bilawal said in response to Nawaz Shairf's statements criticising 'conspirators' for his ouster. Separately, Bilawal said the party plans to introduce youth-friendly policies to help Pakistani youth to meet their aspirations and ambitions by throwing away all the hurdles and hitches in their way to progress and maximum utilisation of their potential.
"Youth is the only power that sets Pakistan as an illuminating spot on the world map. Developed nations are craving for youth to balance their ratio with aging population. We are a nation having 60% of its population youth," he said in a message on International Youth Day.
