KARACHI: Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that he was taken aback upon hearing former prime minister Nawaz Sharif taking name of army leadership.
During public gathering of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), the Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) supremo had alleged that Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa and Director General Inter Services Intelligence Faiz Hameed were involved in rigging general elections of 2018 and bringing Prime Minister Imran Khan’s party to power.
In an interview with BBC Urdu, Bilawal Zardari said that he was waiting for Nawaz Sharif to present evidence of his allegations.
He said the “All Parties Conference” had agreed upon that the entire establishment would be blamed for the ongoing crisis and not just one institute. However, he said, it left him startled when he heard Nawaz naming army leaders.
The PPP chief said that normally a politician did not speak like that in a public gathering. Nevertheless, he said, he could not control Nawaz Sharif or his party on how to speak and neither can he control him or his party.
He said the PDM was an amalgamation of different parties and its agenda evidently reflected in its resolution.
