Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Tuesday vowed that he would fulfill all the pledges that Benazir Bhutto had made with the nation.
Addressing a press conference here, he said people loved the PPP, and accepted its ideology and manifesto. He had travelled from Sindh to southern Punjab, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa and then Balochistan as part of the election campaign and received a good response from people all the way, he added.
He said now he would go to Rawalpindi from Islamabad and then to Lala Musa.
Bilawal alleged that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif were using abusive language against each other and such trend in politics would be dangerous for the country.
The mainstream political leaders should not involve in such practice as it was important to impart knowledge to the youth as to how they could contribute towards national development in a positive way instead of training them to involve in such exchanges, he added.
“The low-level of politics was very dangerous for the future of our country,” Bilawal stated while addressing a gathering of supporters in the federal capital.
“If prominent leaders including Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief and president of Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N), engage in exchange of such harsh words then what the young people would think about them,” he said.
“We should teach the youth to contribute in a positive way,” he said adding that our country could not afford such kind of politics.
“My mother (Benazir Bhutto) taught me that how you conduct yourself in life,” he said.
He said the PPP would give top priority to the economy, foreign policy and elimination of terrorism. “We had to cancel our election campaign activities in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa due to terror incidents,” he added.
Bilawal said his party wanted to solve the problems being faced by the people and asked them to vote for his party candidates. To a question, he said the PPP had a bad experience after signing of the Charter of Democracy with the PML-N.
Later speaking to the people in Islamabad, he said the last PPP government had introduced Benazir Income Support Porgramme (BISP) for the poor.
“We will provide food cards to the poor and homes to the homeless,” he added.
He said his party after coming into power would give loans to women so that they could stand on their feet financially, besides helping the government in improving the country’s economy.
