Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that he will tie the knot just once, unlike some other politicians of the country who are habitual grooms, Express News reported.
“I don’t wish to get married one after the another like some other politicians,” he said in an apparent reference to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan, while speaking during an interview on Thursday, on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum (WEF) being held in Davos, Switzerland.
Besides remaining in the news for his candid political statements, Imran recently made headlines for proposing his spiritual guru Bushra Maneka to tie the knot for the third time.
After much drama, PTI confirms Imran’s marriage proposal to Bushra Maneka
A day after rejecting the news when it first broke, the cricketer-turned-politician had admitted that he had indeed proposed marriage to Maneka, a 50-year-old lady Imran has been visiting for spiritual guidance for quite some time in a remote town near Sahiwal, Punjab.
The PTI leader was previously married twice, but neither of his marriages lasted. He married Jemima Goldsmith, a British socialite, in 1995. The relationship ended in divorce in 2004. He then married journalist Reham Khan in 2015, but the marriage ended after just 10 months.
During today’s interview, Bilawal said the party was fully prepared for the upcoming general election even if it was to happen tomorrow. “However, assemblies completing the constitutional tenure would be better for democracy,” he added.
There's more sensationalism in Pakistan than real news, claims Bilawal at World Economic Forum
Responding a question regarding political alliance with Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) and PTI, Bilawal said all parties are striving for delivering justice to martyrs of the Model Town carnage.
The PPP chairman also participated in a panel address discussing “Fake news vs Real politics” on Wednesday, saying the big business models posed a threat to real journalism in Pakistan.
