Letter has no “importance but it would expose PTI’s real face before the nation”, Bilawal Bhutto


Addressing a press conference in Karachi, the former foreign minister said that Imran Khan’s letter to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to block Pakistan’s financial aid over alleged rigging has no “importance but it would expose PTI’s real face before the nation”.

“PTI never tried to block Shehbaz’s path to premiership; PTI founder may have decided not to fight against Shehbaz,” Bilawal Bhutto said, noting that the PPP was giving votes to the party which approached it to form the next government in the Centre.

He said that Sunni Ittehad Council (SIC) should tell the truth as they lack numbers to form government in the Centre. “PTI never tried to talk with other political parties, including PPP, for vote,” he added.

Bilawal further castigated the Imran Khan-founded PTI for prioritising ‘personal gains’ over the national interest.

He said Shehbaz Sharif, who is the joint candidate for prime minister’s slot, should thank PTI along with PPP after becoming premier for the second time.

Referring to ongoing protests against “election rigging” in Sindh, the PPP chairman said that political opponents could not blackmail them by levelling false allegations.

“Those parties which cannot win the polls without rigging are now protesting against election manipulation today without providing any solid evidence,” he said, asking the protesting parties to approach legal forums to address their rigging claims.
