Bilawal threatens long march if govt doesn’t fulfill demands
KARACHI: PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said on Sunday that if four demands of his party were not met, then a long march will be announced against the federal government on December 27.
Addressing a large number of supporters, party leaders, loyalists and workers, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that if four demands of the party were not met, then PPP will initiate a protest long march against the government.
“A new parliamentary national security committee should be formed,” he said, naming his first demand. “Secondly, Pakistan Peoples Party’s Panama Bill should be passed in the parliament,” he said.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that the third demand was that the government should implement Asif Ali Zardari’s resolution regarding the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor. Last but not the least, the Bhutto scion demanded the government appoint a foreign minister immediately. Bilawal was making speeches and addresses at various points in Karachi as part of his ‘Salam Shuhuda Rally’.
He threatened the government not to take his long march lightly, warning that if it began, ‘then the government would know’.
“This is just the trailer, the party has yet to begin,” he said, referring to the show of political power in Karachi. “This was just the Karachi show,” he added.
The “Salam Shuhuda Rally” began from the Bilawal House and through Boat Basin, Mai Kolachi Road, Moulvi Tameezuddin Khan Road, Jinnah Bridge, ICI Bridge, Nawab Mahabat Khanji Road, Lea Market, Napier Road, MA Jinnah Road, Naumaish Chowrangi, Shahrah-e-Quaideen to Sharea Faisal and has now reached the Karsaz intersection.
