‘Opposition on the same page to expel the PTI government’ | Instant News

Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Tuesday separately met with PML-N president Shehbaz Sharif and JUI-F chairman Maulana Fazlur Rehman in Lahore to discuss ways to oust the “elected” government of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s government.

He also held two separate press conferences after the meeting, saying that his party would support joint opposition decisions including holding mid-term elections after a multi-party conference after Eidul Azha.

“The elected government of Imran Khan has become a threat to the masses,” the PPP chairman told reporters after his meeting with opposition leaders in the National Assembly. “Internal changes and mid-term elections among other options already exist,” he added.

“Very good news for the masses will come out of APC [all-parties conference] which will be held after Eid[ul Azha], he said.

Shehbaz, speaking on that occasion, said the PTI government had failed to deliver, adding that the longer he remained at the helm, the more it would be a threat to the country. “This elected government is not able to bring the country out of trouble,” he added.

The PML-N president also accused the PTI government of “witch hunting”, questioning why NAB could not investigate “massive corruption” in Peshawar BRT and Malam Jabba among other PTI projects.

After meeting Maulana Fazl the previous day, the PPP chairman blamed Prime Minister Imran for the difficulties currently being faced by the masses, adding that people were on the same page against the Pakistani government of Tehreek-e-Insaf.

The PPP Chair also condemned politics on the health condition of Shehbaz Sharif. “It’s unfortunate to do politics on one’s health,” he said.

Bilawal further said that the opposition was on the same page to oust Prime Minister Imran Khan’s government. “Every APC unanimous decision including midterm elections will be carried out,” he added.

Speaking on the occasion, the chairman of JUI-F said that he would bring all political parties on one page, adding that the opposition Rehbar Committee would formulate a proposal after Eidul Azha.

“The Rehbar Committee proposal will be presented at a conference of all parties,” he said.

It is important here to mention that Shehbaz Sharif, after holding a meeting with Fazlur Rehman on Monday, has announced to hold a conference of all opposition parties after Eid al-Fitr, which falls on Saturday, August 1.

The PML-N president said that getting rid of the government took time because the country was being governed by “illegitimate and incompetent people”. He added that inflation has surged in the past two years and the massive rise in gasoline prices is an example of bad governance at the moment.
