Bilawal to skip political activities in Punjab

By Sarmad Ali
Islamabad, Dec 28 (Pak Destint) Pakistan People’s Party patron-in-chief Bilawal Bhutto
will not do politics in Punjab for another two to three years, a bad news for PPP Punjab jialas.
He will continue to make Sindh the centre of his political activities and challenge Sharifs from there.
The PPP leader believes that there is no point camping in Punjab’s capital Lahore at this stage. Even Asif Ali Zardari thinks thinks on the same line.
Meanwhile, Bilawal will continue throwing fire at the Sharifs like he did yesterday in Garhi Khuda Bakhsh.
Speaking at a gathering to mark sixth death anniversary of his mother Benzair Bhutto, Bilawal blamed the ‘establishment’ for his party’s defeat in the May 11 general elections by conspiring against it. He said lion (election symbol of Sharifs’ PML-N) and Taliban had taken ‘same milk’.
With a touch of ZAB’s style and enunciation of Benazir, the PPP patron-in-chief eloquently used Urdu in his speech to the surprise of many. He used political chants and slogans along with poetry throughout the speech.
“PPP is not a party of any landlord, industrialist, player or a mullah but it’s People’s Party.”
Ruling out the notion that the PPP has changed, he said traditions do not change. “People’s Party is passion….its zeal and a tradition,” he added.
Assailing ideology of Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf (PTI), Bilawal said the complicated issue of terrorism and extremism was not going to get resolved through sit-ins and long marches.
“It’s not kids’ game of cricket which can be resolved through a magic bat,” he said in an obvious reference to Imran Khan.
“Tsunami cannot be brought by pouring water in four lotas.”
Bilawal rejected Imran Khan’s perception of a ‘link’ between prevailing terrorism and drone strikes. He said Pakistan was a victim of terrorism before drone campaign started and that terrorist attacks will continue even if the US drone strikes end.
“Buzdil (coward) Khan has stopped Nato supplies to mourn Hakimullah Mehsud’s death.” Pak Destiny
