Charsadda: PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Sunday joked about the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) saying that a clear cut strategy was missing in the coalition meeting tomorrow.

He said that the parties of PDM were confused about the future process.

“It seemed that the PDM parties were getting entangled,” Bilawal said. “Opposition parties should not be confused, at least in parliament.”

He added that all the political parties that are clear about their political position are in a better position to give the PTI-led government a tough time.

Bilawal was talking to media after visiting Wali Bagh in Charsadda along with Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah to offer condolences on the death of Begum Naseem Wali Khan.

Bilawal said that no clear strategy was seen in the PDM meeting tomorrow.

‘There is no point in rejoining PDM in the absence of action plan’

Bilawal said that earlier all the 10 parties of the PDM were in favor of the action plan drawn up for the alliance, however, the action plan could not be implemented as there was no consensus among the parties.

Bilawal said that unless and until the action plan is brought back, there is no point in rejoining the PDM.

He said that it would be better for all if all the opposition parties collectively targeted the government of Prime Minister Imran Khan.

“All opposition parties agree that the Pakistani people are suffering because of an incompetent government,” Bilawal said. “We are facing historic poverty because of the government’s economic policies that are based on lies.”

‘PPP and ANP have political and ideological link’

Talking about the PPP’s relationship with the ANP, he said that the two parties have both political and ideological ties.

“We want a peaceful and progressive Pakistan,” Bilawal said. He further said that the role of PPP in working for the rights and sovereignty of the provinces would go down in history.

“We will stand like a wall against this incompetent, elected government and fight against it,” he said. “Together with the ANP, we will work both inside and outside parliament. We want everyone to speak out against the government’s next budget.”

Bilawal said that if the opposition had worked on the no-confidence motion, neither Punjab Chief Minister Usman Bazdar nor Prime Minister Imran Khan would have been in office.

Speaking on the occasion, ANP Central Senior Vice President Amir Haider Khan Hoti thanked the PPP leadership for consoling them in their hour of grief.

He said that both PPP and ANP have been rivals and allies in politics, adding that whenever it comes to the constitution, the two parties worked together.

“Even in the current political scenario, both the PPP and the ANP have a key role to play, which will continue to occupy the opposition benches,” Hoti said.
