Even our allied are not happy with our activities,” he mentioned. Continuing his speech, he said, “By electing Yousaf Raza Gillani in the Senate, we have proved that Imran does not have a majority. I demand from the companions to get up and do struggle like a lion. We have also showed the way to our allies.” Referring to the PDM, he said, “Bring no-confidence motion against Usman Buzdar because we cannot leave the people of Punjab destitute. First bring no-confidence against CM Buzdar and then Imran Khan. We have proved in Senate election, so if Maulana Fazlur Rehman, PML-N wants, we can bring down PM Imran Khan.” Bilawal Bhutto said that people are facing historical inflation, poverty and unemployment, every day a new economic bomb explodes in the form of increasing electricity, gas and petrol prices. He said that late Benazir Bhutto was famous to provide employment.
