VIDEO: Two injured as Bilawal Bhutto's convoy pelted with stones during visit to Lyari
According to reports, protesters pelted the convoy with stones, smashing windows of the vehicles. At least two PPP workers have been injured in the attack.
Bilawal’s convoy remains stuck in the area for half an hour as police and PPP worker are unable to diffuse the situation.
“Under a planned conspiracy, attempts are being made to defame Lyari,” a PPP candidate told the local media. Yousuf Baloch, a central PPP leader, said that the protest was being held by his party's old opponents.
"We can give a befitting response to our opponents, but our chairman has advised against it," he said.
According to reports, the rally is being diverted to other areas where PPP enjoys good support.
The PPP chiarman is contesting from NA-246, Karachi.
"This is my first election and I'm contesting my first election from Lyari. People of Lyari always supported my mother Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto and I know they will also support me. I will complete the mission of SMBB," Bilawal told his supporters during the visit.
Meanwhile, Bilawal Bhutto’s spokesperson, Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar, in a statement assured that the PPP election campaign will continue in Sindh.
He requested party workers to remain peaceful saying the violence will not be responded to with violence.
Khokar further asked the police and Ranger to ensure peace and also requested the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to take notice of the incident.
