Bilawal Bhutto fires salvos against PM Imran at PPP's Foundation Day
SUKKUR - Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Friday took aim at the ruling government for not standing by his commitments with the public.

The PPP chairman was addressing the party supporters gathered in Sukkur to celebrate the party's 51st Foundation Day.

He slammed the PTI's U-turn philosophy, stating that the ruling party should need to take U-turn on increasing price of electricity. "A leader is the one who stands by his commitment with the masses," he said.

"Imran Khan did nothing but took U-turns during the 100 days," Bilawal said, adding that the PTI had pledged to enforce agricultural emergency in the country but the government policies have landed the farmers into an emergency.

He said if a person wants to become a leader then he should learn from Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and Benazir Bhutto, who had refused to bow down before dictators.

Talking about the use of religion for political benefits, he said religion should not be dragged into politics. Dictators have been used such tactics in the past.

The fire of extremism, terrorism and non-tolerance has engulfed the country, he said and stressed ZA Bhutto's policy to drive out the country from this situation.

"What would have the heirs of martyrs felt when the prime minister said this is not our war," he asked, adding, "Khan sahib whether or not you admit, this is our war."
