Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said his party will come into power in 2018 whereas the current prime minister, Nawaz Sharif will be in jail over Panamagate scandal.

He was talking to reporters after attending the joint session of Parliament on Kashmir on Wednesday.

Leaked documents from the Mossack Fonseca law firm in Panama in April showed several world leaders, including the premier’s three children, Hassan and Hussain and Maryam, owning at least three offshore holding companies registered in the British Virgin Islands.

Bilawal said the PPP had tried to convey to the world that every Pakistani stood by Kashmiris and their cause for freedom.

“We don’t do politics on Kashmir... [we] asked the prime minister to call the APC, which gave a message that we are all united on Kashmir,” said Bilawal.

Tensions between India and Pakistan have been boiling since the Indian government accused Pakistan-based militants of launching an assault on an army base in Uri sector of occupied Kashmir last month that killed 18 Indian army soldiers. In reaction, India claimed to have carried out “surgical strikes” into temporary militant camps inside the Pakistani territory on Wednesday.

Pakistan flatly denied the Indian claims, saying two of its soldiers were killed from unprovoked cross-border firing at the Line of Control (LoC) by Indian security forces.

At least 100 demonstrators have so far been killed due to the occupied military’s indiscriminate use of force against Kashmiri masses.
