Bilawal calls for forced removal of govt as PDM deadline expires

News Desk :

Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has urged the opposition parties to force what he called ‘puppet rulers’ to quit the government as the anti-government alliance’s deadline passed.

The Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) had given a deadline to the Pakistan Tehrik e Insaf (PTI) led government to quit till January 31 or face the pressure. However, there seems to be no sign of the government retreating.

“The selected PM has failed to resign by the deadline set by PDM,” Bilawal said in a series of tweets, adding that the opposition alliance had given “this illegitimate regime the opportunity to step aside respectfully and allow for a transition to democracy with free, fair and transparent elections”.

He said the Pakistani people faced historic poverty, unemployment and inflation because the incumbent government had been “forced on them”.

“The joint opposition must now force the removal of puppets,” he wrote, emphasizing that the PPP believed in relying on democratic tactics and that sustained joint efforts inside and outside the parliament would “ultimately succeed” in sending the government home.

Bilawal said the plan of staging a long-march against the government and moving a no-trust motion against Prime Minister Imran will “hopefully be discussed” in the next PDM meeting.

In a reference to the government’s plan of introducing a constitutional amendment for open ballot in the upcoming Senate polls, the PPP chairman said the government’s “desperation” was clear as it was “trying to change rules to rig Senate elections because they can see their defeat”.

“God-willing, Senate elections will show [that the] government is on shaky ground,” he added.

Bilawal also used the occasion to reiterate that the establishment “must leave political battles to the politicians now or risk being drawn into controversies”.

“Only a government chosen by the people can deliver for the people,” he concluded.
