CHINIOT – Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari on Saturday said that PPP was made to lose 2013 elections under a pre-planned conspiracy, warning that he will not allow anyone to rig elections this time.

Speaking to a public rally in Chiniot, Bilawal said that every PPP government had undertaken development projects for the city.

“PPP had given the go-ahead to make Chiniot a district,” he said. “The current government is not worried about the masses but they are instead focused more on the coffers,” he said.

Bilawal slammed ex-prime minister Nawaz Sharif for leading a rally from Islamabad to Lahore. The PPP chairman wondered who Nawaz was sending a message with his power show.

He also criticised PTI chairman Imran Khan, asking the cricketer-turned-politician what he had done for the people of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa ever since his party came to power in the province.

“In which area of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa are the rivers of milk and honey flowing?” he asked.

Bilawal said that if Imran Khan’s Naya Pakistan consisted of a place where women were no longer safe, the Taliban were estranged brothers and abuses were common, then the people would reject such an ideology.

“Nawaz Sharif and Imran Khan are two sides of the same coin,” shouted Bilawal. “Both of them have damaged the politics of this country,” he added.
