Islamabad, 28 February 2021: A delegation of Pakistan Peoples Party led by Chairman PPP, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari called on President Pakistan Democratic Movement, Maulana Fazlur Rehman at his residence in Islamabad on Sunday. Former Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gillani and Farhatullah Babar were accompanied Chairman PPP.
Talking to media after the meeting Chairman Bilawal said that the PPP delegation visited President PDM to discuss political issues. Syed Yousuf Raza Gillani is the PDM candidate from Islamabad and Farhatullah Babar is the PDM candidate for a technocrat seat from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. The PDM has challenged the government on every front. We defeated the government in all four provinces in Pakistan in the recently held bye-elections. Government rigged elections in Kurram agency and Daska bye-elections. Daska election results have been declared null and void. Pakistani people have rejected this selected government.
Responding to questions, the Chairman PPP said that we hope that our candidates will Insha-Allah win the senate seats and then we will send this selected government and Prime Minister packing and after that we will form a people’s government to work for their interests. He said that ANP is an important party in the PDM and has been supporting the collective cause. He said that yesterday in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa the entire opposition was on one page against this selected government and for this he thanked all the parties including Jamaat-e-Islami.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that we think that PML-N has taken its seats in Punjab and those will be very vital in Chairman Senate’s elections. As far as MQM is concerned, it is a government ally and has representation from Karachi but the federal government has done nothing for Karachi. We think that if they support the PDM then their voice for their rights will be louder. Replying to a question about Supreme Court verdict’s regarding the presidential in connection to the open ballot, Chairman PPP said that we hope that the Supreme Court will decide according to the constitution and law. We are prepared for both open and secret ballots. We are speaking to government and its allies as well and we hope that the members will support the democratic candidate against PTIMF candidate.
